Prince Harry qualifies as attack chopper pilot

London: British royal Prince Harry is set to return to war-torn Afghanistan after qualifying as a frontline Apache attack helicopter pilot.

According to contactmusic.com, the 27-year-old completed an 18-month training programme to qualify and now he will return to Afghanistan, where he spent 10 weeks serving as a forward air controller between 2007 and 2008.

Prince Harry, also known as Captain Wales in his professional military capacity, was also handed an award at a special dinner after he was judged the best co-pilot gunner Wednesday.

"The award handed to Captain Wales consists of a polished 30mm round from an Apache cannon mounted on a stand," a defence ministry statement said.
