Prince Harry is moving to America to spend two months on a helicopter training course.
The 27 year old, brother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, will arrive in the States next week (beg10Oct11) and will be based in El Centro, California, where he will train to fly combat aircraft in the desert close to the Mexican border in conditions that replicate those in war-torn Afghanistan.
Captain Devon Jones, the commanding officer at the Naval Air Facility, tells the Associated Press, "He will be Captain Wales when he is here. He will be treated like any other British pilot."
Prince Harry will also spend time at an Air Force station in Gila Bend, Arizona.
