Pilot Officer Paul Constant Marie Hellegers was a Dutch officer of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born the son of Clement and Jane Hellegers, of Lanaken, Limburg.

Aged 21, Hellegers, serving as a pilot in 640 Squadron, died on 11 August 1944, when his Avro Lancaster (NA563) came down at Gouloux while on an operation against the Dijon railway junction. The seven crew were originally buried by members of the Maquis, a French resistance group, near to where they had died.[1]

Hellegers and his crew are presently buried at Pont-du-Cens Communal Cemetery, Nantes.
