Description: this factory fresh Cessna (build by Reims) was on October 3 1980 registered to Abelag Aviation, established in 1964 and basing this airframe at Grimbergen airfield for its Cessna Pilot Center, here seen in the second livery without titles. On November 29 1991 it moved to Europaviation, the new brandname of small aircraft operated by Abelag. As Abelag's Pilot School closed early 1992, it went on April 22 1992 to Abatros Air Academy (Grimbergen airfield) continuing the same pilot school activities but this proved to be quite unsuccessful ending already in October 1992. After Abatros demise on September 8 1995, it migrated on January 30 1996 to Aéro Para Club de Spa based at Spa airfield, receiving its own livery in summer 1996. On May 9 2011 it was damaged beyond repair during a fire when in maintenance at Wevelgem airport being cancelled from the register a few months later, namely on September 13.
