The adventurous royal made the task look easy.

It was only recently that Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan completed his first solo flight in a helicopter, but he already seems pretty comfortable in the pilot’s seat.

The royal has shared a video to Instagram which shows him behind the flight controls during a paratrooper training exercise.


The 24-year-old, who last year graduated from the UK’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (which is also where British Princes William and Harry studied), can be seen starting up the helicopter and preparing for take-off.

The clips then shows the royal holding the chopper steady, as paratroopers leap from the aircraft.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Crown Prince’s skills put to the test. Last year, the royal co-piloted a helicopter over the Dead Sea for a sky-diving display with the Red Bull Air Force.

He’s not just a daredevil in the air, either. Earlier this month, Hussein shared some adrenaline-fueled footage of him and his father, King Abdullah II, taking part in some live-fire training exercises.

Yep, Jordan’s royal family rules.
