Hello!

My name is Daan van der Heijden, and I am a 25 year old Dutchman living in Lisse, The Netherlands. I am a Second Officer on the Boeing 777 with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Aviation started as a hobby when my dad took me on a day out to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport when I was at the age of five. Ever since that moment I have been "infected with the aviation virus" and it has never left me.  

At the age of fifteen I got my first DSLR camera, a Canon EOS Rebel, from my parents as a birthday present. I started making trips to Amsterdam Schiphol more often with friends that I met in high school.
