Is Prince William a second Lt in the Army still? F.O. is generally equal to Lt in the Army.

I think he is stoll Scond Lt. Well thats what i read. Its good to know William is deciding to do something. Also this seems to be alot of hard studying/work for him, well they did mention it was an intensive four month course. Good luck!

A flying officer is equivalent to a Lieutenant in the army, it is a junior RAF commissioned officer rank. As a 2nd Lieutenant, he could/should have been given the rank of pilot officer, they are normally aircrew, so as William is learning how to fly, he has jumped up a rank.
