Secret’s Out: King of the Netherlands Is a Pilot for KLM

Secret’s Out: King of the Netherlands Is a Pilot for KLM
Jesse Tabit

Willem-Alexander, King of the Netherlands, revealed this week that he has secretly been co-piloting KLM flights for the past 21 years. “I find flying simply fantastic,” he said in an interview with a Dutch newspaper. “You can completely switch off for a while and focus on something else.”

The news came after it was revealed the King was headed to training to fly a Boeing 737, a plane that will soon be used by the carrier.

    Three decades ago, you couldn’t be a mother and a flight attendant. So, DO NOT APOLOGIZE for exercising your right to juggle multiple roles. Kudos!
