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.
