Prince William starts working as air ambulance pilot today

Prince William, who is second in line to the throne after his father Prince Charles has already started his new civilian job Monday, March 30 as an air ambulance pilot. Kensington Palace, his London residence, said in a statement that “the Duke of Cambridge has today started work as an employee of Bond Air Services.”

“He will undertake job-specific training before he begins piloting missions for East Anglian Air Ambulance during the summer,” the palace added.

Price William completed a three-year stint as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot in northwest Wales in September 2013. He said is based at Cambridge airport in eastern England and his duty is to work with medics in responding to emergencies ranging from road traffic accidents to heart attacks.

As reported, the prince’s annual salary is £40,000, however, the full amount will be donated to charity.
