The ultimate boy fantacy
The avid aviator/actor John Trovolta currently owns five aircraft, including an ex-Australian Boeing 707–138. About a decade ago, Travolta had a home in a fly-in community near Daytona, but was sued by neighbours who claimed his jet airplanes were too big and noisy for their facility. His new Airport and home in Florida is located immediately off a main airstrip, it is designed so his jets can taxi right up to two outbuildings connected to the main structure, the house is equipped with an air traffic control tower. Travolta can literally walk out his door, under a canopied walkway and into the cockpit of his plane, and be airborne in a matter of minutes. According to the Federal Aviation Administration pilot database, Travolta is qualified in several types of single and multi-engine aircraft, and has the highest pilot medical certification possible.
