The famous actress, director, humanitarian, and mother of six is well-known for her love of aviation. She became a student pilot in 2004, and then a private pilot in 2005. She owns a $360,000 Cirrus SR22, which is said to be one of the world’s fastest single-engine aircraft.

Jolie told Vanity Fair that, “When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield and have lunch, and watch the planes. And it dawned on me: I could fly… So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday.”

In 2012 Jolie forked over $1.6 million on a helicopter and flying lessons for then-fiance Brad Pitt. They even have a helicopter pad installed on the grounds of their southern France home, Chateau Miraval. Brad has his private pilot’s license. Both Jolie and Pitt have gotten a taste for air travel, and have even expressed their interest in being space travelers on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.

In 2013 Jolie was banned from flying her SR22 by the FAA because the plane’s airworthiness certificate expired and the renewal application was sent late. She can still fly, but must renew the certificate to fly the SR22.
