Later it operated its own aircraft also for flying school activities as the depicted one carrying a green livery with their titles (see also upper left inset). On March 22 1967 it went as "OO-WIH" to Golden River Aviation Club based at Wevelgem airport. Later it went in 1970 (via Western Aviation Company) to the Kortrijk Flying Club also based at Wevelgem airport. In 1981 it moved on to a trio private owners (M. Cornelis, A. Levens & J. Voet) basing their airframe at Ursel Air Base. After a period of storage there it was on April 3 1987 sold to Aeroclub van Brasschaat based at Brasschaat airfield.
