Prince William performs helicopter maneuvers to delight of Canada

The royal couple choose Canada as their first trip since their wedding.  While staying there William requested performing his first helicopter water landing.  William is a helicopter water rescue pilot and so is accustomed to sea missions.

“From the water, William piloted several takeoffs and hovered in the air before executing dual- and single-engine landings before taxiing around as Kate watched from the ground.

“He was looking for his wife on the shoreline at one point,” said Col. Sam Michaud, 42, who trained William. “She was waving back about 100 feet away.”

Michaud said William is now fully trained. He said William remarked that the “boys back at his squadron would be absolutely jealous.”
