I believe that forum participation on A.net is restricted ($), which is not the case at luchtzak. Many Belgian aviation enthusiasts may actually read the A.net topics, however because of the (financial) entry barrier many of them can not actively participate in the discussions. This draws some of the attention away from A.net and diverts it towards sites like Luchtzak. In the meantime Luchtzak has build up some momentum and quite regularly you can find some interesting postings there (at least for Belgian spotters).
I think that Luchtzak can be complimentary to A.net, as long as luchtzak concentrates on its particular niche (which I believe is the Belgian aviation scene). Therefore Luchtzak is more of a regional player (VLM type), while A.net is the global player (Star Alliance type).
Luchtzak is all in English, however I'm a bit wondering how much the name "www.luchtzak.be" appeals to other than the Dutch/Flemish natives.
The amount of registered A.netters that are familiar with the BRU
scene may be rather limited.
Is there a way to find out how many "Belgian" members are actually registered on A.net?
I would guess somewhere around 30-40 people.

That's for sure. However the announced BRU
spotters meeting is more of a local event, which is probably unlikely to draw much attention from "around the world".
Just my humble opinion.
