"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your king from the cockpit!" This could be happen to passengers after April 30. “Prince Willem-Alexander is determined to ‘as long as possible’ keep his pilot license, even after the inauguration,” says the Government Information Service (RVD).
In order to have the required flight hours for the license, the prince has for many years been a guest pilot at KLM Cityhopper. He flies to European destinations with a Fokker 70. “This can be both,” says the RVD, “on the government plane PH-KBX as on a Fokker 70 from the regular fleet.”
