On November 10 1958 it migrated to Christiane Devleminck as "OO-AED" and this on behalf of Devleminck Air Services (DAS) which was a flight school, also based at Grimbergen airfield. Here it's seen at its home base with, besides "DAS" titles on the fuselage, small "Ecole Devleminck" titles in the tail (see also upper left inset).
