PRINCE HARRY TO PRESENT ARMY AIR CORPS PILOTS’ WINGS
Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop, Hampshire
Friday 16th March, 2018
Prince Harry will return to the Army Aviation Centre where he undertook advanced helicopter training to present the latest graduates with their Wings.
His Royal Highness will present 12 pilots from Course 17/02 of the Army Air Corps with their Wings at a ceremony in the Museum of Army Flying. He will then move outside for a photograph in front of an Apache helicopter with the graduates.
Prince Harry was a graduate in the same ceremony in 2010 when the Prince of Wales, the Army Air Corps Colonel in Chief, was the Presenting Officer.
This will be the final Wings Parade to be held at Middle Wallop, before the ceremony transfers to the Defence Helicopter Flying School at Shawbury as part of the expanded new tri-service helicopter training operation.
The Wings Parade takes place after each student completes the operational training phase, and as graduates they are presented with the insignia distinguishing them as qualified Army Pilots.
