Prince William loving life as a pilot

Britain's Prince William enjoys real job satisfaction.

The 33-year-old royal works as an air ambulance pilot, and he says he's fortunate to work with so many "brilliant" people and he finds his day job to be "fascinating".

Asked what it's like flying a helicopter, the future king told the Big Issue magazine: "Well, it's a lot easier than journalism, that's for sure (laughs). I'm really enjoying my time with the Air Ambulance - it's fantastic. I work with brilliant people, and the medical side is truly fascinating.

"We've got some of the best doctors in the world and the job they do saving lives is quite something. To feel I've contributed in some tiny way to the work... it's a worthwhile feeling I get at the end of the day."

Earlier this year, a spokesperson for the Air Ambulance service confirmed the prince was "settling in" well to his new job.

The Duke of Cambridge began his role as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance, based at Cambridge International Airport, in July.

And shortly thereafter, Air Ambulance spokeswoman Diana Jakubowska said: "He is settling in and got on very well. He is a fully accepted team member."
