    King WillemAlexander said in an interview published Wednesday that for the last 21 years, he has flown twice a month as a commercial airline copilot for KLM’s Cityhopper subsidiary, a regional carrier that flies among European cities.

    King WillemAlexander told national newspaper De Telegraaf in an interview published Wednesday that he has ended his role as a regular "guest pilot" after 21 years on KLM's fleet of Fokker 70 planes and before that on Dutch carrier Martinair. He will now retrain to fly Boeing 737s as the Fokkers are being phased out of service.
