London, June 1 (ANI): Speaking for the first time about his helicopter training, Prince Harry has confessed that flying is tougher than he ever thought it to be.

In a candid interview, the Royal has revealed that he faces difficulties when it comes to the theory side of aviation.

The 24-year-old prince has already completed five months of his two-year course to become an Army Air Corps combat pilot.

“The flying is fantastic. But there are times I’ve thought, I’m really not cut out for this mentally. It’s really intense,” British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying.

He added: “I knew it was going to be tough, but never thought it would be this tough. I hope I’ve got the physical skills to fly a helicopter. But there are the exams and everything. I can’t do maths. I gave that up when I left school.”

Harry gave the interview after playing in a charity polo match at the end of a two-day trip to New York, his first official visit overseas. (ANI)
