“To make my dream come true, I even worked as a truck driver.” Since the well-known Antwerp pilot school BAFA, active at Deurne airport since 1980, closed its doors earlier this year, the dream of Philipp Hofmann (29) from Deurne has come true – just like that of dozens of other students who want to fly by plane. cleave – to shatter.
