Watch Rare (New!) Footage of Prince William Flying a Helicopter
Sure, we’ve heard stories about Prince William’s former career as a helicopter pilot, but we haven’t seen actual proof…until now.
In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Air Ambulance, the 36-year-old prince showed off his piloting skills by flying a helicopter from Kensington Palace to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, and—lucky for us—it was all captured on camera.

The video features Prince William taking control of the helicopter during the 25-minute trip. After landing, the royal watched a paramedic demonstration before getting named the patron of the Air Ambulance’s 30th Anniversary Campaign.
We have no doubt Prince George is one jealous toddler.
