Prince Harry wants to become a 'Top Gun' trainer
London, July 22 (ANI): Prince Harry reportedly wants to live in California and hopes to work as a consultant or "Top Gun" style training technician for the Naval Air Facility El Centro.
The 27-year-old, who is now a fully qualified co-pilot and gunner on Apache helicopters, had been preparing to return to Afghanistan but security issues have made it difficult for him to be treated like a "normal soldier."
The Royal is aware that he is a major terrorist target and due to security considerations, his military career may be short.
Yet he wants to utilize the training and combat skills that he has gained.
Instructors awarded him the highest honour of "best front seat pilot" last year after he successfully completed the US course.
A role at El Centro and at Gila Bend Auxiliary Air Force Base in Arizona would have given him the chance to do that in a secure environment.
"Harry cannot go on lengthy tours of duty, he is too much of a target and threat for other soldiers," the Daily Express quoted a royal source as saying.
"He is a skilled pilot and gunner and the bases in the US would love to have him as a consultant or instructor. It would make sense too from a protection point of view," the source added. (ANI)
