Prince Harry qualifies as Apache helicopter pilot

Britain`s defense ministry says Prince Harry has qualified as an Apache attack helicopter pilot.



London: Britain`s defense ministry says Prince
Harry has qualified as an Apache attack helicopter pilot,
graduating as the best co-pilot gunner in his class after 18
months of training.

The ministry said today the prize recognises the student
whose performance is the best among their peer group.

Known in the military as Capt. Wales, the third-in-line
to the British throne was awarded his prize yesterday.

The prince, who trained in California, in southern
Arizona and in Britain, will now fly Apaches on exercises in
the UK.

In December, a British newspaper said Harry had
acknowledged he will be deployed to Afghanistan for a second
time. He briefly served there from 2007. The defense ministry
has declined to confirm details of the prince`s future
deployments.
