Prince William passes exams to fly East Anglian air ambulance

Prince William is planning to start work as an air ambulance helicopter pilot in the summer after passing a ‘rigorous’ set of exams, the Daily Mail reports.

The Duke of Cambridge hopes to work ‘as close to full time as possible’ flying both day and night shifts after completing mandatory ground school training, which is expected to take a few months.

He had been studying for his air transport pilot licence exams since last September and passed all 14 exams required to work as a civilian helicopter pilot, Kensington Palace revealed.

The written exams covered a range of topics including the principles of flight, navigation, flight Planning and air law.

The announcement was made shortly after the Duke of Cambridge touched down in Tokyo for a seven-day tour of Japan and China.

Prince William will aim to work as close to full time as possible, covering shifts for the team based in Cambridge and Norwich and his salary will be donated to charity.
