Who knew that Angelina Jolie has her pilot’s license and is also the owner of a plane?

Angelina Jolie got her pilot’s license in 2004 and owns a Cirrus SR-22, one of the world’s fastest single- engine aircrafts. 

A 2014 Cirrus SR-22 base model costs $489,900, a pricey toy but chump change for the star actress. (According to the article, Jolie’s plane cost $360,000.) Jolie topped the Forbes list for highest paid actresses at $33 million earned between June 2012- June 2013.

According to Yahoo News, Jolie was banned from flying her personal airplane after she was late in renewing its registration. On June 30 the plane’s air-worthiness certificate expired. A renewal application was sent in but the FAA said that it arrived too late.

After initially reading the headline I assumed that Jolie did something wrong or illegal as a pilot and lost her license. The reason for her ban seems more like a technicality than a permanent ban and I’d assume her plane will be back in the sky at some point in 2014.

  1. Sounds like her personal assistant that handles this paperwork should get fired.

    Seriously you’d think she’d have a lear jet or something. Maybe it’s just a way to get away from paparazzi.
