Prince Harry is slated to be honored as a "living legend of Aviation" amid his estrangement from his father, King Charles.
The Duke of Sussex is gearing up to fly into the special group as he is among the four people who are going to be inducted at the 21st Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards in Beverly Hills on January 19, as reported by PEOPLE on Wednesday.
At the forthcoming event, American actor, John Travolta, will honor "those who have made significant contributions to aviation/aerospace."
In the past, the younger son of the King and Princess Diana served as a helicopter pilot during his time in the British Army military services.
In addition to flying training missions in the U.S., U.K., and Australia he also served in combat missions in Afghanistan.
The 39-year-old royal was awarded his Flying Wings in 2010 after he completed the eight-month-long Army Pilot Course at the Army Aviation Centre.
He learned to fly a Firefly fixed-wing aircraft and the Squirrel helicopter and bagged approximately 220 hours of flying.
Harry also landed the prize for best co-pilot gunner during training after spending three and a half years in training and operational services with the Apache Force during his time with the Army Air Corps.
Later, onwards, he also became a fully operational Apache pilot by February 2012.
However, following his achievements he encountered a rough patch with the monarchy when he moved out of Britain and settled in the US with his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2020.
The Spare author further strained his relationship with his majesty and Prince and Princess of Wales after he published his memoir in January 2023, which darted several accusations on the working royals.
