9 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were PilotsWhether for work or for personal reasons, we know celebrities travel a lot by air. What most of us don’t know is that some of our favorite celebrities not only ride in planes, some actually fly them.
One of Tom Cruise’s famous on screen roles was playing naval pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in the 1986 film “Top Gun.” Not only is he a pilot on-screen, but off-screen as well.
This actor/producer is actually a licensed pilot, earning his license in Toronto Canada, in 1994. Cruise has four aircraft which he enjoys piloting from time to time.
Academy and Emmy Award winner Cliff Robertson also has a passion for aviation. His interest in airplanes intensified when he began working on an airport cleaning airplanes and engine parts at age 14. At times, the chief pilot would take him up for a ride and let him take the controls. Robertson has owned several aircraft models including Tiger Moths, and a Supermarine Spitfire.
Since acquiring his first jet, Arnie (as he is known) has upgraded numerous times and has since owned a Lear Jet, five different Cessna Citation's and a Citation-X, an aircraft with international range. "To put it quite simply I could never have accomplished even half as much as I have in my golf and business careers over the last four decades without having my own airplanes."
An avid pilot for over 50 years, Palmer piloted a plane for the last time on January 31, 2011. He flew his Cessna Citation X from Palm Springs, California to Orlando, Florida. His pilot's medical certificate expired that day and he chose not to renew it since.
Aside from being Han Solo and Indiana Jones, Hollywood legend Harrison Ford is also a private pilot of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. He started learning about aviation in the 1960s, flying in a Piper PA-22 Tri-Pacer. He was unable to continue training until the mid-1990s when he bought a used Gulfstream II and received flying lessons with one of his pilots.
His favorite plane is his de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver, he's an Honorary Board Member of the humanitarian aviation organization Wings of Hope, and he's flown as an invited VIP guest of the Blue Angels.
The Grease star has shown his great love for aviation by having his home built with a 1.4-mile landing strip ending at the main entrance. He is a certified private pilot owning five aircraft, including a Boeing 707.
Famous American film actor Kurt Vogel Russell has been a certified pilot since 1992. He is an FAA licensed private pilot holding single/multi-engine and instrument ratings and also an Honorary Member of Wings of Hope, a humanitarian aviation organization.
Music legend Jimmy Buffett has been an avid pilot ever since he got his license. In January of 1996, Buffet was involved in a controversy after his aircraft "Hemisphere Dancer" was mistakenly identified by Jamaican police as smuggling marijuana.
With him on that trip was U2’s Bono, Island Records producer Chris Blackwell, and co-pilot Bill Dindy.
Morgan Freeman worked as a mechanic in the Air Force but never had the chance to fly a plane until he was 65 years old. The actor earned a private pilot's license and has owned a number of private aircraft including a Cessna 414.
Award winning actress Angelina Jolie has been taking flying lessons since 2004and has earned a private pilot license with an instrument rating. Jolie owns a Cirrus SR22 airplane.
The actress’ plane is capable of speeds of up to 300 miles (483 kilometres) per hour.
