    By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Prince William, second-in-line to the throne, launched a new career as an air ambulance helicopter pilot on Monday, saying his new job would keep him "a good guy". William, Queen Elizabeth's grandson who was previously a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force, will fly missions from Cambridge Airport with specialist doctors and paramedics across eastern England. "For me, it's also a really important point to be grounded and I feel doing a job like this really helps with grounding the core of what I'm trying to become." Asked what that was, he replied: "Trying to be a good guy, trying to do what you can and trying to be a decent individual." Whilst the air ambulance role will be William's primary job, he will continue to carry out official duties as a royal, responsibilities which have grown in recent years as the 89-year-old queen scales down her engagements.
