John Travolta has added a new flying machine to his aeronautical CV … a 737.
JT just scored his 737 license … and he was pleased to crow about it to his 3.8 million followers, saying, “Okay, so a very proud moment in my aviation history.”
He went on — and this is interesting — “To add to my 747 and 707 licenses, I just received my 737 (pilot) license, and it went very well.” It’s interesting he chose to go for a jumbo jet — the 747 — and a 4 engine passenger jet — the 707 — before getting certified on the smaller, 2-engine 737.
The 68-year-old actor has a fleet of planes, including a Bombardier Challenger 601, a Boeing 707-138B, and an Eclipse 500.
He bought the 707 22 years ago for $77 million, tricking it out inside for another $20M.
It’s pretty amazing … the jet can seat 150 passengers, but Travolta reconfigured it so it carries 15 passengers in high style. It has 2 bedrooms and an impressive bathroom and shower.

John lives in a private aviation community in Florida that has a full-sized runway. He parks his jets the same we we park our cars.
John’s been flying since he was 15 and got his first license back in 1978.
