    De Kooy Airfield (Dutch: Vliegveld De Kooy) (IATA: DHR, ICAO: EHKD) is an airfield south of Den Helder, Netherlands, named after the nearby hamlet De Kooy. It serves as both a civilian airport under the name Den Helder Airport and a naval airport under the name Maritiem Vliegkamp De Kooy (Dutch for Maritime Aviation Site De Kooy). Most movements on the De Kooy are made by helicopters, bringing workers to and from offshore oil-rigs and naval helicopters such as the NH90 of the Royal Netherlands Navy. The oil fields in the North Sea will eventually be depleted and when that happens the airport would lose most of its helicopter movements and thus alternative markets are being looked at, such as business and holiday flights.
