Reality TV star Nicole Richie was allowed to take control of a private plane when she flew to Canada and while she found it lots of fun, she’s not sure others agreed. She tweeted: "This past Thursday, I flew to Montreal … and by flew, I mean I actually flew. My partners, Rick and Brian, let me be the co-pilot once again on their jet! "It was so much fun! Now if only everyone else on the flight felt the same way."
Nicole is not the first celebrity to show an interest in flying. Last November, supermodel Gisele Bundchen passed her written exam for her pilot’s license. Keith Douglass, president of Shoreline Aviation, a company that provides private jets and aviation lessons, said: "She’s very dedicated. She flies at least three days a week. Flying a helicopter isn’t easy – it’s a handful, because you can’t stop flying and just cruise, but she’s doing great." Angelina Jolie also has a pilot’s license. Photo: Fame Pictures
