THE HAGUE: Dutch King Willem-Alexander, who works part-time as a commercial pilot, is to start conversion training to fly Boeing 737 passenger jets, according to a global media report.

The conversion training will mean the royal can continue to fly twice a month for KLM as a co-pilot.

The airline is currently phasing out the smaller Fokker 70 plane used on short-haul flights, a policy which would have made it difficult for him to continue flying.

The Dutch royal said, his conversion training would start at the end of the month.

Passengers, however, will continue to have no idea that there is a member of the royal family in the cockpit. The king’s presence is never announced.
