Flying is oxygen to Manero, who once said that his acting funded his passion for aviation. He earned his private pilot’s license at age 22 and today owns several aircraft, including a Boeing 707-138 that was previously part of Qantas Airways’ fleet. His home is in Jumbolair Aviation Estates, a fly-in community at north central Florida’s private Greystone Airport. He has a taxiway right to his door, where he parks the 707.
O.K. - we have to confess that John Travolta did not actually complete a Heritage Engineering Apprenticeship!
But we don't have any career stories from heritage aviation yet, so we wanted to put something in to fill the space.
And of course, Tony Manero is his fictional character in the movie Saturday Night Fever (ask your mum or dad about that one!).
But with the right qualifications and experience, the sky really can be the limit!
