LINCOLN, England, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Britain's Prince William will soon fulfill his ambition to fly a plane thanks to his impending training with the Royal Air Force.

The member of the British royal family is scheduled to complete a four-month training course in the village of Cranwell that will include flight training, Hellomagazine.com reported Friday.

William's training at the military college is set to begin next week and is being labeled as part of his ongoing training to eventually head up his country's armed forces.

While the prince's military training will allow him to fulfill his childhood dream of flying, it also means he will have to give up certain things.

The Web site said that in addition to limiting his alcohol intake during his training, William will not be able to spend much time with his girlfriend, Kate Middleton.
