John Travolta and Jack Gill
Will his next aircraft be a powered paraglider?
Many stars including William Shatner,
Leonard Nimoy, Harrison Ford, and John Travolta have fallen
in love with various forms of aviation. William Shatner
embraced PPG several years ago. Now John Travolta could
be the sport's next PPG celebrity pilot.
To the left is superstar actor John
Travolta with stunt coordinator and PPG pilot Jack
Gill. During the shooting of John's
latest movie, Wild
Hogs, in Santa Fe New Mexico, Jack set up his
paramotor in hopes of tempting John into the sport. Though not an instructor, Jack was hoping a demo flight might do the trick. Unfortunately, a Park Ranger stopped Jack, saying that taking off in the Park was against park regulations.
Jack lives in Los Angeles and flies on
a regular basis in the San Fernando Valley.
