Georges LIPPENS passed away...

We recently learned that George Lippens de Cerf, former member of the board of our Royal Belgian Aeroclub deceased on September 3rd. this year, at the age of 96.

George Lippens de Cerf was an active aeromodeler after WWII. He won on several occasions in the late 1950 and 1960's the much celebrated Wakefield Trophy for rubber-powered aeromodels. He was founder of the first Belgian aeromodeling federation (Fédération de la Petite Aviation Belge or FPAB), together with Louis Leroy and Albert Roussel, both also members of the executive board of the Royal Belgian Aeroclub in those years.

The funeral is planned on Saturday September 14th 2019 at 11 AM in the curch of Ciney (Belgium)
