Prince Harry faces night flying challenge as a pilot

London, Oct 25 (ANI): Prince Harry is reported to face one of his toughest challenges as a pilot by flying the Apache attack helicopter at night.

It is the next stage of his training after having passed tests by handling the 46million pounds machine in daylight.

“Night flying is tough and he must carry on working hard to get to grips with this next phase,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.

“But he is a bit of a natural at flying and is really enjoying his course,” the source added.

Harry, 26, will spend eight months learning how to use the Apache in combat if he succeeds the night flying at the Army Air Corps base in Middle Wallop, Hants.

And that will mean going to the US to fire live missiles.

A St James’s Palace spokesman said, “Prince Harry is very pleased to have passed such an important stage of his training. (ANI)
