Prince Harry may be an award-winning army helicopter pilot, but his father isn’t about to be outdone in the transportation department.

On Friday, Prince Charles piloted a London Underground tube train in Derby, England, as part of his visit to the factory where the trains are built.

The Prince of Wales viewed and test-drove the new London Underground train on a test track, according to a press release. A source tells PEOPLE that he got up to about 45 mph and “seemed to enjoy himself.”

In addition to his driving adventure, he toured the Bombardier Transportation facilities and met London Underground employees.

Your move, Harry.
