Famous people who happen to be pilots

I thought of this after asking to myself "how many famous people out there fly a plane on a regular basis, or at least know how to?"
If you know of anyone, list their name and what they are known for like so:

Bruce Dickinson - Singer of Iron Maiden
Dexter Holland - Lead singer and rhythm guitarist of The Offspring

Han Solo!
He crashes a lot.
Also, what is the point of this topic?

To share anything we know about famous people and flying planes. I am really curious about that topic.

And oh man how did I forget Harrison Ford

I doubt many famous people fly. For numerous, and the obvious reason that some people are psychos. At some point, in the near future, you’ll run out of famous people. Is there a real point?

Perhaps we’d run out, but I don’t see how questioning it is helping, as I anticipated others would be interested in this as well.

John Travolta, I believe he has a 707 amongst his small “fleet”

Make this a wiki so regulars can add people to the list.

How did you forget Harrison Ford. He’s a great pilot! He crashed a plane I think 3 times already! Lucky he’s still alive!

@Q-ENAN Most of them have multiple planes

I don’t see the problem (if it’s a problem)

I don’t either… I’m just waiting on the post to become a wiki. @Noroftheair contact a mod to make it a wiki for you.

Bruce Dickinson. If i’m not mistaken, he even got himself certified for the 747-400 as Iron Maiden used it on the tour 2015.

Look in the first post, he was already mentioned. He also flew the band’s 757 for the tour before that.
