“Star Wars” actor Harrison Ford took to the skies on Thursday for the first time since his airplane crash in March — this time opting to co-pilot a Bell 307 helicopter.

People magazine reported that Ford was in the air for a few hours and seemed understandably happy to be back to his top hobby.

One of Ford’s planes went down a Santa Monica golf course on March 5, causing a scary scene and immediate uncertainty about the star’s well-being. Eventually he was deemed to be in “fair to moderate condition.” Following engine failure, Ford had been forced to crash-land his World War II-era airplane, a Ryan Aeronautical model ST3KR, built in 1942.

The 72-year-old was previously involved in two other crashes: In 2000, he crashed a six-passenger plane in Lincoln, Nebraska, while the previous year, he crashed a helicopter 60 miles outside of Los Angeles.
