Vliegbewijs (Certificate of Flight) KLM -1934

When (commercial) aviation was still in its infancy, airlines were keen to earn extra money with scenic flights which, of course, also introduced aviation transport to the general public. Jan Westera was so kind to donate me a certificate that proved another "dare devil" had taken to the skies !

Front:

Back side:
