Prince William begins East Anglian Air Ambulance job


The Duke of Cambridge has admitted he is "feeling the nerves" as he begins his new job as an air ambulance pilot.

Prince William started his new job as an air ambulance helicopter pilot on Monday, saying this would keep him "a good guy."  Nevertheless, the second in line to the throne was honest when he said that his new post was making him feel the “nerves.” 

 Prince William took the civilian pilot course September last year and then took another training for 999 so he could work with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

The prince’s new job would take him to Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire and his first shift started at 7 am in Cambridge Airport, as a co-pilot for the medical staff. He will have four days of work followed by another four days off. But he’ll be definitely out each time he has an official engagement as a member of the Royal Family. 

The prince discussed that it’s not an easy job he has, considering he’s got two jobs to juggle plus a growing family to attend to.


“Obviously at some point there is going to be a lot more pressure and responsibility from the other side of my life, but at the moment I'm juggling the two of them and a young family and I'm enjoying the challenge,” he said.
