London: Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie made a short trip flying a plane from Van Nuys airport in California.

The 36-year-old, whose love for aviation is well known, indulged in her favourite past time on March 24 with a trip in the pilot seat of a small prop plane sans her kids and partner Brad Pitt, as reported.

She was joined by a co-pilot and an unknown person in the back of the small aircraft. Jolie has been a frequent flyer for many years and even takes her children along with her for flights.

She received her pilot's license seven years ago and had said she was inspired by Maddox to get into flying.

"Every time Mad sees a plane, he's amazed, If I could actually fly a plane... I'll be like Superman to him," she had said.
