The Duke of Cambridge will return to the skies today as he begins his new job as an air ambulance pilot.

William began a civilian pilot course in September before undergoing dedicated 999-response training in order to take up the role with the East Anglican Air Ambulance.

He is expected to report for his first day of duty based at Cambridge Airport. The former RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot will work as a co-pilot transporting patients to hospital from emergencies ranging from road accidents to heart attacks.

He will have no contact with the Duchess when he is on call-outs as mobiles must be switched off.
