The Belgian Aeromodelers League is the organisation taking care of all aeromodeling competitions in Belgium. The BAL is member of the Royal Belgian Aeroclub (ACRB-KBAC), the federation of all Belgian Air Sports, member of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI).

The structure consist of several so-called "sections", each of which is reponsible for a specific aeromodeling category. See "Sport" for an overview.

Each section is managed by a "coordinator" who takes care of all administrative matters for his/her specific category. On the field, depending on the part of the country where the event takes place, either the Dutch speaking or the French speaking "sporting director" acts as the local FAI judge.

Pre-registration to competitions

Several competition sections require the participants to register in advance, e.g. not later than noon on the preceding day. This pre-registration is required to provide sufficient time to organise the starting lists, etc. Most of the time, this registration is accomplished on the section's website.

These are the pre-registration sites : F3A - F3C - F3N - F5J

Cancellation and postponed competitions

Sometimes, competitions cannot take place due to bad weather or other adverse conditions. Such announcements will appear in the News section.
