  • 100 years military aviation
    Le premier aérodrome militaire vu le jour à Brasschaat et en mai 1911 l école d aviation militaire y ouvrit ses porte s officiellement Les officiers sélectionnés suivirent leur écolage en deux phases D abord chez les constructeurs et une fois le brevet civil acquit ils poursuivirent l écolage à Brasschaat pour l obtention du brevet militaire Quelque temps plus tard afin de démontrer l utilité de l aviation dans le domaine militaire le Commandant Mathieu chef de la compagnie des aérostiers du génie intègre deux avions de Brasschaat dans les grandes manœuvres de septembre 1911 L année suivante verra pour la toute première fois un appareil armé d une mitrailleuse Fort du succès de l expérience l avion militaire ne sera plus uniquement confiné aux missions d observation et de reconnaissance En 1913 le Commandant Mathieu rédigea une étude visant à mettre en place une aviation militaire au sein de l armée belge et coucha sur papier l idée de former la compagnie des aviateurs forte de 9 escadrilles de quatre avions chacune La situation budgétaire de l époque réduisit le total à 4 escadrilles C est le 16 avril 1913 que le Roi Albert Ier signa l A rrêté R oyal signifiant la création de l aviation militaire Le dit arrêté Royal fut officiellement publié au Moniteur Belge quatre jours plus tard soit le 20 avril 1913 Depuis ce point de départ bien des choses se passèrent et l aviation militaire prit de sérieuses proportion par l addition de nombreuses machines et suivi les avancées technologique s en la matière D exercices divers en grandes manœuvres l aviation militaire se développe et de plus en plus de pilotes intègrent les rangs de cette nouvelle arme La première guerre se profile à l horizon 2 escadrille s sont opérationnelles 1ère 2ème tandis que 2 autres sont en cours de formation 3ème 4ème Les premières missions de guerre furent enregistrées en a oût 1914 mais les pertes furent assez sérieuses durant ces missions d observation A la fin du premier conflit mondial l aviation militaire comptabilisait 12 escadrilles dans lesquel le s des noms prestigieux tels que Willy Coppens de Houthulst Jan Olislagers Edmond Thieffry et bien d autres La paix revenue l aviation militaire continua sont développement et l industrie aéronautique belge commença à faire parler d elle par le biais des Compagnie s Renard Stampe Vertongen et Sabca Vint ensuite la deuxième guerre où rapidement les autorités s inclinèrent face à la puissance a llemande Toutes activités en Belgique stoppèrent net De nombreux pilotes et techniciens s échappèrent de la mère patrie pour continuer la lutte dans les forces étrangères mais ceci est une autre histoire Une fois le conflit terminé et la paix revenue la Force Aérienne tel que nous la connaissons vit le jour en o ctobre 1946 Depuis cette date clé la Force aérienne se développa pour atteindre son apogée fin des années 50 début 60 Depuis lors la Force Aérienne évolua en fonction des
