Prince William Starts Work As Air Ambulance Pilot

Britain’s Prince William started his new job as an air ambulance pilot on Monday.
 
The Duke of Cambridge, who was previously a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force, will fly missions from Cambridge Airport with specialist doctors and paramedics across eastern England.
 
 The second-in-line to Britain’s throne completed his civilian pilot course late last year before a 999 (emergency) undertaking response training to qualify for the East Anglian Air Ambulance job.
 
“I’m fantastically excited to be here today,” said the Prince. “It’s been a long time coming, it’s been many exams and training to get here. I’m hugely excited to be joining a very professional bunch of guys and girls doing a unique and complex job.”
 
“At some point there is probably going to be a lot more pressure and responsibility from my other side of my life,” he said in the interview. “At the moment, I am juggling the two of them and a young family, and I’m enjoying it... Inevitably down the line things will probably become more difficult for me to do that, but now whilst I’m still relatively young I will try to manage the two jobs the best I can.”
 
William will juggle his royal duties with nine-and-a-half hour shifts in the first few months — including night shifts — as part of a rotation where he will work four days and then have four days off. The Prince will be paid a salary by Bond Air Services which he will donate in full to charity.
