Dr. Carlo Gyselbrecht is the father of Nikolaas and Thomas.

Before PIPA was founded I worked as a veterinary surgeon, with pigeon racing being my great passion. I was fortunate to have bred an international first prize winner from Barcelona, as well as a 2nd and 4th national Barcelona in Belgium. When PIPA was founded, I closed my veterinary praxis to put all my energy in PIPA. I had several responsibilities within PIPA. We had to perform many administrative and financial tasks, and so we had to start hiring people. The lofts played a crucial role as well. The pigeons that were kept here had to be kept in great health. This was quite a demanding task for me. We agreed with other vets and professors to draw up a program that aims to keep our pigeons healthy.
