John Travolta is a certified private pilot who owns five aircraft, so it is only fitting that the 60-year-old actor’s Florida residence has two runways that lead directly to his front door.
“We created the house for the jets and to have at our access the planet at a moment’s notice, and we succeeded at that,” a bearded Travolta stated in the course of an interview Thursday on Australia’s “Today.” “For the final 11 years, we’ve been able to globe-trot for Qantas and films … I’ve been truly in a position to operate out of this home for enterprise and individual factors.
Travolta has been a Qantas “ambassador-at-large” considering that 2002 and keeps his private Qantas Boeing 707 in the yard of his Florida residence, just a ten-minute flight from Orlando.
