Tom Cruise Paid For Glen Powell's Flight School & He's Now A Licensed Pilot!

Glen Powell is officially a licensed pilot!

The Top Gun: Maverick star revealed the big news on his Instagram today, and credited co-star Tom Cruise for helping him achieve one of his dreams.

“Try not falling in love with aviation after living out every pilot’s dream while shooting @topgunmovie,” Glen captioned with a video on his feed. “Especially when you see the way @tomcruise flexes it. After wrapping a shooting day, Tom would rocket off into the sunset in his P-51 while I would limply shuffle into the cast van.”

Glen revealed that Tom was a major factor in obtaining his license too: “…For Christmas, Tom bought me an iPad with my flight school downloaded and prepaid. And yesterday, after months of flying, studying, and testing…I’m the real deal.”

Top Gun: Maverick is set to open this summer. Check out the first TV spot now!
