Having the Duke of Cambridge as one of our pilots is marvellous news as he brings much experience to the charity after his successful career as a search and rescue pilot, said Andrew Egerton Smith, chairman of EAAA.

Smith said William will join the day and night shifts and will carry out his missions in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, and his salary will be all donated to the charity.

"The duke sees this as a true form of public service, helping people in their most difficult times," Kensington Palace's spokesman said.

"He regards his work with the RAF search and rescue force as having been an exceptional privilege and the duke wanted to make his own contribution to the outstanding work of the air ambulance service," he said.

The EAAA is a 365-day helicopter emergency medical service. It currently operates two helicopters and employs three pilots in Norwich and three in Cambridge.
