Description: the success of the early flight school years (with Pipers) encouraged European Air Transport to enter the sale of aircraft. With a potential clientele of future pilots trained in its school, the company became in 1978 the representative of the American manufacturer Mooney M.20J or model 201. Thus on June 2 1978 a factory fresh Mooney was registered to them, here seen as demonstrator on a meeting at Charleroi airport in its only livery without titles when with E.A.T. with in front a plate of the aircraft performances. On April 18 1983 it went to Vanmey pvba (Wevelgem airport), on November 17 1987 going to a private user (L. Casteleyn) basing it at Zwartberg airfield and a month later on December 4 to Locabel Finivest.

Description: on June 26 1991 it was cancelled from the register migrating the next month on July 4 to Industrial Meat Company BV as "PH-IMC", here seen a year earlier in an attempt to change to this owner with the Belgian registration taped over the Dutch one as it was initially not taken up. From January 16 1992 onwards it moved to a Dutch (J.M.M.C. Fasen) and Belgian (Goodline pvba) owner, making from 1996 onwards many visits to Antwerp airport till its cancellation in the Dutch register on April 10 1998.
