Famous Flyers

Featuring interviews with names you know and their favorite aircraft. These celebrities have worked hard to reach the tops of their professions and now enjoy the perks of private aircraft. Some of these famous flyers charter jets often for business and lifestyle. Others have decided ownership is more logical for their circumstances and have learned a lot along the way. While still others are so enamored by the art of flying that they’ve become pilots, logged thousands of flight hours, and fly everywhere themselves. Famous flyers make headlines all the time in their worlds’ of business, sports, cinema, art, investing, wealth, politics, and influence, so why not give them a little more press based on their fondness for flying?
