Celebrities involved in air sports


Greedy to be in the spotlight everytime, celebrities have always tried all kinds of extreme sports. Nowadays many actors got into aviation business and obtained a pilot licence.

Maybe some of you are aware of John Travolta as one of a kind actor, but also a one of a kind pilot.  With over 5000 flying hours he obtained a pilot certificate and a very significant contract with Breitling for advertising their watches. In case of Breitling and John Travolta, it is deep passion for aviation and great experience in the field.

The Sun announced that Michael Jackson’s kids had tried indoor skydiving in a flight simulator. Both Prince Michael and Paris were visiting Hollywood’s Universal Studios (accompanied by aunt La Toya) and decided to try their hand at the skydiving. They couldn’t stop laughing as they defied gravity when their bodies floated on a cushion of air.

Another famous pilot is Angelina Jolie. Yes!  The Tomb Raider’s actress owns a 360,000 dollar Cirrus SR-22 and has been spotted taking  Brad Pitt and kids Maddox, Zahara and baby Shiloh for trips in the speedy jet. Harisson Ford is a private pilot of both planes and helicopters. In March 2004, Ford officially became chairman of the Young Eagles program of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Paris Hiloton is “addicted” to skydiving – after jumping from a plane to celebrate her birthday in 2007.

Other personalities involved in aviation (that have a pilot licence for exemple): Clint Eastwood, Senator John Forbes Kerry, Actor Morgan Freeman, Tom Cruise, Ex-American President George W. Bush, and many others.
