Prince William has a new job with Bond
The dashing prince, who will complete his training this winter, will work as pilot with Bond Air Services – based at Cambridge and Norwich airports. William will start off as a co-pilot, and after his training period he will go on to earn his qualification as a helicopter commander.
The new father will donate his salary to charity, and Kensington Palace highlighted that the Duke is undertaking his pilot's role alongside his royal duties and charity work. Conveniently, his new East Anglia base is located halfway between his apartment at Kensington Palace and country home, Amner Hall in Norfolk.
Prince William has a long relationship with the skies – he trained to be a search and rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force in January 2009, and was based in RAF Valley from January 2010 to 2013, where he was a flight lieutenant. William also qualified as a helicopter captain two years ago. The 32year-old has dedicated seven-and-a-half years of military service – contributing to more than 150 search and rescue operations during his tenure.
