(Newser) – Prince Harry is about to show off his legendary partying skills in the party capital of the world—Las Vegas. The royal boozer, who tumbled into a pool last week while dancing at one of his recent bashes, is heading to California and Arizona for 12 weeks of helicopter training. But he'll take a couple of days off for some Sin City R&R, sources tell the London Mirror. Vegas "is a chance for pilots to let their hair down, kick back, and enjoy themselves," said the source.

Partying isn't all Harry's good at, apparently. He's considered a talented pilot, even if he does struggle a bit with math calculations required for his trips. "We wouldn't risk our equipment, the safety of Harry, his co-pilot, or the team around them if we didn't think he was the best man for the job," an official tells the Daily Mail.
