Highly successful, lifelong actor Kurt Russell says, “Flying has taught me more about who I really am that anything I’ve ever done.” With nearly 28 years in the air, he encourages others to fly and mentors many pilots in and out of the entertainment business. He’s positively passionate about learning every aspect of flying. “You know what they say about a pilot’s license? It’s a license to learn.” Kurt continues, “Leave your ego at the door: when you get into a plane, it’s serious business. And yes, it’s a love affair in the air that continues to add joy to my life. Kurt received the “Aviation Mentor Award” at the 7th Annual “Living Legends of Aviation Awards."
