Harrison Ford is an avid aviator and longtime tenant of Santa Monica Airport before his crash on March 5. The "Indiana Jones" actor was even among those who filed a federal complaint with the FAA to keep the airport open last year.
Hilary Swank got the flying bug while filming "Amelia" in 2009, and she enrolled in flight school at the Santa Monica airport as soon as the Earhart biopic wrapped.
Angelina Jolie learned to fly at Santa Monica Airport and credited adopted son Maddox for her desire to learn because he was obsessed with planes as a three-year-old.
Tom Cruise earned his action star status in "Top Gun," so it's natural that he got his pilot's license in 1994 (even though, in real life the 5'7" actor is too short to be a Navy pilot).
Multi-millionaire supermodel, married to the Super Bowl MVP and a helicopter pilot -- is there anything Gisele Bundchen can't do? The Brazilian beauty even learned to fly while she was pregnant.
John Travolta is such an aviation fanatic that his house in Florida is a fully-functioning airport with two runways. The Qantas "ambassador-at-large" even has a Boeing 707 in his backyard.
Kurt Russell's grandfather was an aerobatic pilot and the actor has followed in his footsteps. "Flying has taught me more about who I really am than anything I’ve ever done," says Russell. "I take very calculated risks."
"American Sniper" director Clint Eastwood is an experienced pilot, and the 84-year-old has even been known to fly a helicopter just to avoid traffic.
Morgan Freeman didn't even get his pilot's license until he was 65, and has owned at least three aircrafts since including two Cessna Citations.
