Fly with us

Each year we receive hundreds of emails from photographers around the globe with that one single question….”how can we take Air-to-Air photos like we see on your website?”

We are very happy to say that we do have actually plenty of opportunities to share with other aviation photographers. NO, you don’t have to be a professional photographer or work in aviation related media, military etc….you just have to be enthousiastic!

The Aviation PhotoCrew covers all of the cost of the flying missions themselves, that is not only the cost of the photoship, but things as landing fees, handling fees, even passenger taxes at several airports, so the big projects we offer do require a real big budget as well.

Nothing will ever beat that feeling, and the photoresults are precious memories for so many years to come. In every season we try to do our best to organise at least a few 1-day projects that are affordable for most photographers. The wellknown ‘departure days’ and ‘airshow day’ are 1-day projects offering several aircraft types in a single day.

The ‘big’ projects with multiple days of flying require of course a budget that will be similar to any other high-end hobby, keep that in mind ;)


Each year around October we send out an annual newsletter with all the information on the projects we will fly in the next season. It is very easy to get in contact with us, just send an email to or any other member in the Aviation PhotoCrew and you can expect an answer very soon.

When the ‘little’ worldfamous airshow of Sanicole is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary you can expect a pretty good airshow…but it’s always a really good airshow, so how do you celebrate in style? To make it a super brilliant airshow of course! Needless to say that the photoflights would be set at the same level, the only bad luck in this week was the Friday of the arrivals, when the weather made it impossible for us to fly apart from a morning run with the Swiss F-18’s in nearly fog weather.

Just like RIAT for military airshows, the word ‘Sanicole’ echoes home of one of thé best civilian airshows in the entire world. Each year again, the little worldfamous airfield in Belgium present an airshow of superb quality, with some unique participants.

As Sanicole is also the place where we shaped the success of the Aviation PhotoCrew, our longtime partnership for the air to air photomissions are a guaranteed success. Rain or shine, our teams are corporations are so solid that we always manage to fly with most of the participants. With the Skyvan photoship, we flew from the nearby airfield of Zwartberg.

The 2012 edition of the Photoflying Days was destined to be an even bigger success after the two previous events. This year’s Academy was again fully booked with no less than 65 photographers coming from all over the world especially for this event. The line-up of historical aircraft was really huge, one of the largest gatherings of Oldtimer Aircraft ever in Belgium. Not only fighter birds like the Spitfire and the Hurricane attended, but we also had two very nice DC-3 Dakota’s, next to a whole array of other unique airplanes.

Malle Airfield was again the homebase for the second edition of the Air-to-Air Academy 2011. This time it was organized in August which was a very good choice as we had the most beautiful weather we could have ever hoped for. We welcomed over 40 photographers from all over the world, and the line-up of participating aircraft was just amazing.

The very first edition of the Air-to-Air Academy was for all of us a very steep learning curve, both for the organizers and the photographers. It took place in May at the Airfield of Malle, and we were very happy with all the nice aircraft who participated in this first edition. It was great to meet so many new friends, of which many returned the following years.
