Prince William applies to fly air sea rescue helicopters

Prince William has reportedly applied to join the Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre based at RAF Kinloss in Scotland. The Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre sends rescue teams to help people and boats in distress. If Prince William's application is successful he could possibly fly helicopters in potentially dangerous sea and mountainous rescue missions.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “There are still major concerns because rescue situations can be very dangerous. But His Royal Highness doesn’t want to be wrapped in cotton wool. He sees air rescue as the perfect opportunity to prove his mettle and serve his country.”
