It’s no secret that he loves to fly the friendly skies, and now Prince William has accepted a job with the East Anglican Air Ambulance company.

Beginning this fall, the Duke of Cambridge will train at bases at Cambridge and Norwich airports, so he’ll be able to stay close to his wife Kate Middleton and their little guy Prince George.

As for his compensation, a Kensington Palace spokesman told press, "In common with all other East Anglian Air Ambulance pilots, The Duke will be formally employed by Bond Air Services. He will draw a salary which he will donate in full to charity."

Furthermore, "The Duke will start as a co-pilot but, after a period of training, will be qualified to fly as a helicopter commander. This job will be the Duke's primary occupation, but his roster will take into account the duties and responsibilities he will continue to undertake on behalf of The Queen, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. The Duke will also continue his work with his patronages and with the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry."
