This issue celebrates 100 years of Dutch aviation.

KLM (Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij, or “Royal Airline Company”), NLR (National Aerospace Laboratory of the Netherlands, a major technological institute), and aircraft manufacturer Fokker all celebrate their 100th anniversaries in 2019. In many ways, the three of them tell the history of Dutch aviation.

KLM, the world’s oldest airline, was founded on October 7, 1919, by eight Dutch businessmen. It had been awarded royal (or “Koninklijke”) status by Queen Wilhelmina a month earlier. Its first flight was from London to Amsterdam on May 17, 1920. Its first intercontinental flight was on October 1, 1924, from Amsterdam to Jakarta. Today, the airline is part of the Air France-KLM group. In 2017, its 204 aircraft and 34,872 employees transported 32.7 million passengers.

The NLR was founded on April 5, 1919, to increase safety in military aviation. It expanded with the growth of the civilian sector. Today, it claims its mission is to make “aerospace more sustainable, safer, more efficient, and more effective.”

In 1912, Anthony Fokker founded his namesake company in Germany. He relocated it to the Netherlands in 1919. The company reached its height in the 1920s and 1930s, but during World War II its factories were stripped by the Germans and destroyed by Allied bombs. It was rebuilt after the war, concentrating on aircraft production and aerospace, but competition and high development costs finally forced it into bankruptcy on March 15, 1996. The company’s profitable aerospace unit continues to operate today as Fokker Technologies, concentrating on parts, systems, and aircraft services.
