We are also shocked: the celebrities we all love are also pilots Israel today


Tom Cruise's love for flying has moved from the movies to real life, another huge star took out a license when he was 15 - and the successful supermodel took out hers when she was heavily pregnant

When you have so much money, sometimes you look for something to do with it - and some Hollywood stars who worked hard for their millions discovered a hobby that has long since become a prominent hobby among some well-known names: flying.

From Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise to even supermodel Gisele Bündchen, these are some of the celebrities you know and love who like to spend their free time behind the wheel of a hands-on airplane.

Tom Cruise

More than 30 years ago, Cruise starred in the hit action movie Love in the Sky, which last year spawned an even more successful sequel.

Eight years after the release of the first movie, Cruise got his pilot's license - and he hasn't stopped flying since.

He knows how to fly helicopters, and if you watched "Love in the Sky: Maverick", then you would have seen his flying skills with your own eyes - as he performed most of his stunts himself.

John Travolta

Even before becoming one of the most recognizable actors in the world, Travolta began studying aviation.

how long ago

Already when he was 15. He got his pilot's license 7 years later, when he was 22.

Since the issuance of the license, Travolta even managed to fly a Boeing 707 for 8 weeks.

Harrison Ford

It is true that the actor became known as the one who flew the Millennium Falcon in the "Star Wars" movies in which he played Han Solo, but Ford has a pilot's license that he took out when he was 53 years old.

It turns out that he started studying aviation after graduating from university, but stopped it when he ran out of money.

After he became famous, he continued his studies - and as mentioned, he got a pilot's license.

But we should keep an eye on him: he has had several minor accidents over the years.

James Blunt

The British singer, known to many thanks to the huge hit "You're Beautiful", has the blood of pilots at sea: his father was a colonel in the Royal Air Force, who flew military helicopters during his career.

It even made him get a pilot's license at the age of 16 - even before he got a driver's license.

Gisele Bundchen

The Brazilian supermodel started taking flying lessons after worrying about what she would do if she found herself on a flight that went wrong.

And she didn't just do it: she passed her final pilot test when she was seven months pregnant, no less.
