Basic VFR flight information:

Entry:  Belgium is part of the Schengen area. Flights within Schengen can land at any airport without the need to clear customs/immigration controls.  
FPL: A flight plan is not compulsory even for international flights within Schengen. However, the destination and overflown countries may have different rules, so it is recommended to file an FPL for any cross-border flight.

An FPL is compulsory for any flight which is partly or entirely carried out in a controlled airspace. An FPL is also compulsory for night VFR flights. An FPL must be filed at least 30 minutes prior to the flight.

Belgium flying experience: 

A great part of Belgian airspace is used for military purposes during weekdays. On holidays the airspace below 4500 feet is open as uncontrolled airspace for civil aviation.
