Celeb Pilotes..

Sun Sep 08, 2002 11:20 pm

Just read that Bruce Dickinson is a part-time pilote for British charter, so
John Travolta isn´t alone. Remember the late Rajiv Gandhi, is should have stayed as a pilote, it would have been better...

Dean Kamen (inventor of the Segway and all sorts of other stuff) flies his Citation Jet (which, mind you, he is certified to fly without a copilot!)

George Kennedy  Wink/being sarcastic I expected he would be a pilot !!!

I've heard Harrison Ford flies also ( well, if you can pilot the millennium Falcon and AF1...)

About Duchess of York, Her (ex) husband Andrew is a very good hellicopter pilot. She... just draws cartoons about Budgie, the little hellicopter.

Gary Numan flies a Harvard in the UK (though he might have several?). I think he's also on some display committee or other?

Regarding the Duchess of York she is in fact a real pilot. She has her PPL- only i can't remember whether it's on a chopper or an airplane but she did take lessons in a PA28 and she did at one stage have a PPL.
