After seven months of training, Prince William is going to graduate as a fully qualified search-and-rescue helicopter pilot.
William, 28, said the course was challenging, but he "enjoyed it immensely. I absolutely love flying, so it will be an honor to serve operationally with the search-and-rescue force."
William's younger brother Harry is training to fly Apache attack helicopters.
