Who is Kim De Klop and why is she famous on Instagram?

Kim De Klop and her role as a Pilot
When she was 21 years old, Kim became a qualified pilot and is the source of inspiration for those who follow her on Instagram.
She began her training course in the field of aviation at the age of 19 and got an opportunity to work for Blue Air, the low-cost Romanian airline.
In September 2015 Kim uploaded her first pic in the flight deck. Luxury watch company Breitling has sponsored Kim and gifted her a watch worth 8,000 pounds in return for Instagram posts showing off the timepiece to be posted every month.
Even though she has now more than six years of experience in the job now still people often mistake her as Cabin Crew and don’t expect that someone like her to be flying planes.
Kim once shared with Daily Mail that people often get mistaken and ask her if she is cabin crew. She said, “And when I say I am a pilot they ask if I really fly the aircraft. I am proud to be a woman in this industry. Proud to be part of the five per cent of women flying around the globe.”
In 2017, she resigned from Blue Air and joined Norwegian Airlines. She bought a house near the airport after this new job. After three years she became a cargo pilot for Belgium-based Challenge Aircargo.
