Aviation Légère de la Force Terrestre A109BA

The Belgian Army A109s are two derivatives of the military A109C, also known as the BA. The A109HO is primarily an observation version, the HA primarily an anti-tank attack version. The A109s mainly serve with 17 & 18 Battalions (approx 5 HOs and 14 HAs each) with the remaining 8 HOs with the SLV (Army Aviation School).
H46 was delivered as a pattern airframe, to form the basis of the remaining batch of 45 built by SABCA at Gosselies. Belgian A109s are powered by twin Allison 250-C20 engines.
During 2004 as part of a new unified structure, Army Aviation units were transferred to COMOPSAIR (Belgium Air Component)
