|Quoting Vfw614 (Thread starter):|
While RAF student pilots usually are trained for 3-4 years, the Prince is undergoing only four months of flight training, initially on a Grob 115E, then on a Tucano and finally on a Squirrel.
The official line is: "The prince is not undertaking a full training course."
So to what extent will he be qualified after four months of training? News articles says that he will be flying twice a day on most days and study in the evenings.

but 2 lessons per day for 4 months is more than what most trainee civilian pilots do in 2 years

Prince Andrew even saw action in the Falkland war.
