FAA bans Angelina Jolie from flying personal plane – Report
Angelina Jolie has reportedly been banned from piloting her personal plane by the Federal Aviation Administration. The 38-year-old star was grounded after she was late renewing the registration of her personal plane earlier this year, as reported by the New York Post‘s Page Six on Dec. 11.
The FAA documents, obtained by the Post, state that the plane’s “airworthiness” certificate expired on June 30 of this year. Jolie’s team sent a renewal application, but a letter from FAA sent at the beginning of September tells that the application arrived too late.
Jolie has a $360,000 Cirrus SR-22 plane, which is said to be one of the world’s fastest single-engine aircraft. The Maleficent actress got her pilot’s license in 2004, and since then she’s been taking her flying lessons on-and-off.
Despite the current certificate is expired, the documents also show that the plane was flown in October near Montana. But it’s not mentioned that who piloted the single-engine aircraft.
In 2010, Angelina Jolie told Vanity Fair of why she decided to get her pilot’s license. “When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield have lunch, and watch the planes. And it dawned on me: I could fly,” she said. “So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday.”
