The process consists of 14 exams and a flight test.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are facing heavy criticism after second pregnancy from Greer When asked what the Duchess of Cambridge, can contribute to feminism as a 21st century woman, the queen of British feminist Germaine Greer laughs almost with sarcasm.
