With a terrifying plane crash behind him, Harrison Ford says he decided to learn how to pilot a plane because he was worried about getting old and wanted to see if he could still learn new skills.
“I didn’t pick it up again until I was 52. I was worried I was getting old and I couldn’t learn anything anymore. I didn’t only want to be an actor in my life,” Ford was quoted saying.
“No dissatisfaction with that career, I just wanted some other experience,” he said, adding, “Airplanes are expensive, but at a certain point it was clear to me that maybe it would be cheaper to buy my own than for Warner Bros to keep flying me around... no such thing as a free lunch.”
“I have a love for airplanes. It’s the hole in daddy’s armour and yes, where all the money goes,” he added.
The 73-year-old actor said that the appeal of flying for him isn’t about taking risks and being a daredevil, but the “responsibility” of taking care of his and other people’s safety.
