Harry to fly helicopters; ROYAL FAMILY.

PRINCE Harry is set to fly deadly frontline helicopters after qualifying for British Army Air Corps course.

Harry, 24, passed a monthlong intensive test, and could be flying into battle within two-and-a-half years if he completes the training programme.

A Clarence House spokesman said: "If Prince Harry qualifies as a pilot, he will be available for service wherever the AAC flies."

The Corps is deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, where Harry served 77 days. His brother William is to train as a Navy search and rescue pilot.
