The RLS started with ex RAF Tiger Moths, Harvards and Beechcrafts D-18S. Soon the Tiger Moths and Harvard were replaced by SAAB Safirs.

For the training of both military and civilian pilots the North American Harvard has been of considerable importance. In 1935 North American introduced the NA-16. From this prototype, the trainer AT-6 Texan was developed. Already in 1938 the plane was ordered by the USAAF, the RAF and France. The RAF renamed the AT-6 in Harvard. Over the years a number of modifications were added which resulted in the variants Harvard II, IIA and IIB. In total there are more than 15,000 Harvard and AT-6's built of which 1500 at Noorduyn in Canada. The PH-UBN(ex.

In 1990, the RLS bought 9 Slingsby T.67C-3 Firefly for the basic training. They replaced the eight Cessna F.152-IIs operating in this role since 1980. When in August 1991, the KLM took over the RLS and transferred it into the KLM Luchtvaartschool(KLM Flight Academy): the aircraft were repainted in the basic KLM colours. The T.67 Firefly was a further developed Fournier RF-6. René Fournier designed his RF-6 in 1974. It was based on his earlier all-wood motor gliders with high aspect wings. He started a factory in Nitray in France especially for the RF-6. After having built 40 aircraft, he ran into financial difficulties and had to close his doors. Fournier had sold the license to Slingsby, which further developed the RF-6. The wooden construction was replaced by composite and the aircraft was made completely acrobatic. This became the T.67C of which around 250 were built. The PH-SGG was registered with KLM Luchtvaartschool BV, Eelde, was withdrawn from use in November 2001 and sold to France.

In 1969 3 HFB-320 Hansa Jets were purchased to replace the Morana Saulniers. This was not a really happy purchase because the Hansa Jets were noisy, thursty and expensive to maintain. Two were sold to the USA in 1977 while the last disappeared from the fleet in 1983. In 1973 seven Cessna 500 Citations were purchased which produced much less noise and were more economical to operate. They remained in service until 1991. In 1991 the Rijksluchtvaartschool was privatized and taken over by KLM for the symbolic sum of one Dutch guilder to continue as an independent company under the name KLM Luchtvaartschool (KLS) and later KLM Flight Academy.
