Tom Cruise is a licensed pilot of multiengine aircraft and has helicopter flying skills. The famous actor has a collection of aircraft.

Cruise owns a vintage P-51 Mustang fighter jet from the Second World War and a Gulfstream IV G4 jet. This is reported by Simple Flying.

According to the travel expert, the actor's fleet may also include such aircraft as the HondaJet and Bombardier Challenger 300.

Cruise is one of the few actors who truly loves aviation. He has had a pilot's licence since 1994 and can fly several types of aircraft.

During the filming of The Late Late Show, Cruise took host James Corden for a flight in his own vintage P-51 Mustang fighter jet. Cruise purchased this World War II-era fighter jet in 2001.

The P-51 Mustang was an American long-range fighter-bomber that saw action in World War II and the Korean War.

Recently starring in the film Top Gun: Maverick, Cruise takes to the skies in a P-51 Mustang fighter jet. What adds to the intrigue is that he was not just portraying a pilot on screen - he was actually at the controls of his own P-51 Mustang fighter jet.

Gulfstream IV G4 jet aircraft

This is a jet aircraft with an estimated price of $20 million, which can accommodate up to 19 passengers. It is noteworthy that the aircraft is equipped with luxuries, including a jacuzzi and a special room for showing films.

Its production lasted from 1985 to 2018, resulting in the production of more than 900 G4 units. This jet can cover distances of up to 7100 kilometres and reach a top speed of 850 kilometres per hour.

Are there any more?

Whether the actor has more aircraft in his fleet has not yet been officially confirmed. But Jack Sweeney, who is known for revealing the travel habits of many celebrities, including Elon Musk, said he was able to identify Cruise's HondaJet and Bombardier Challenger 300 jet.
