Prince Harry qualifies as an Apache Aircraft Commander

Published 5 July 2013

Prince Harry has this week qualified as an Apache Aircraft Commander within 3 Regiment Army Air Corps.

This qualification marks the culmination of his experience as a member of the Apache aircrew.

It follows a successful tour of Afghanistan, which was preceded by a distinguished record in training including being awarded a prize for the best Co-Pilot Gunner.

Prince Harry’s Commanding Officer, Lt. Col. Tom de la Rue said: “This is a tremendous achievement for Captain Wales who passed with flying colours. I am delighted that his new status as a qualified Apache Aircraft Commander and Co-Pilot Gunner places him at the very top of his profession.”

Prince Harry will continue with normal duties as an Apache Pilot based at Wattisham Airfield.
