My first helicopter flight

There’s a first time for everything!

Working at KPN I was part of “Team Kuipert” for a few years. A golden team! Still,10 years later, we meet each other every year to review the past and present and discuss the future. Always fun evenings. Last time -dinner at my place-  they brought a present for my KPN-farewell; a helicopter flight above the area where I live.

Friday it looked a bit drizzly but the pilot told that the views were stunning. And he was right, a clear sky and a view as far as Rotterdam. The seating is narrow but you can see everything and with the headphone hear everything. The pilot told a lot about what we could see, like:

  •  the eco-viaducts for the animals in this “green heart” of Holland surrounded by High ways,
  • the water infrastructure making connections between swampy areas,
  • nature management with the help of sheep and cows,
  • the buildings, city’s and villages, Haarzuilens De Haar Castle, Nijenrode University, Naarden Vesting,  of course the TV Tower. (my workplace in recent years and also the tower from which I abseiled). And to top it all off my house, my home.


For this post: no more words but photos!


My flight was by Ryfas Helicopters from Hilversum airport.

Thanks a lot “Team Kuipert” for an amazing experience. And you will understand: next time in New York or any other beautiful city, I have to check if I can practice my new hobby: flying in a helicopter (with a pilot!!).


    1. LvG – Hi, I am Leny. 60+ and after 25 years in Sales and Marketing in the Broadcast Industrie I am about to discover new talents. I am inspired by interiors, design and travelling and I would like to share this with you. I am a mother of 3, grandmother of 3 and, by the way, I love all shades of green. This lifestyle blog will focus on interiors, design and travelling for my generation. Children left the home, more time and sometimes more money available but you still want to experience new things and maybe reinvent yourself.
