Angelina Jolie is well known for her love of aviation. And the mother-of-six indulged in her favorite pastime on Friday with a trip in the pilot seat of a small prop plane.

The superstar gave new meaning to the term ‘jet setter’ as she took off from Van Nuys airport in California.

Angelina was pictured wearing her trademark aviator sunglasses as she concentrated intently to the task at hand. She was joined by a co-pilot and an unknown person in the back of the small aircraft.

Angelina has been a frequent flyer for many years and even takes her children along with her for flights.
