John Travolta Signs On to Pitch Bombardier Business Jets
Travolta is already a global ambassador for Qantas, for which he painted his personal Boeing 707 in the Australian airline’s retro livery. He also promotes the aero-centric watch manufacturer Breitling.
The Oscar-nominated actor’s connections to Bombardier and Learjet go back years, as he already owns a classic Learjet 24 and previously flew a Canadair CT-114 Tutor jet trainer. The Montreal-based manufacturer says Travolta was recently certified on the Challenger, his 11th license.
Incidentally, the announcement comes 44 years to the day that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard first passed along the story of Xenu to his followers. According to Hubbard, Xenu was a galactic dictator who flew to earth aboard an engineless DC-8 aircraft 75 million years ago and dumped billions of his subjects around volcanoes, then proceeded to nuke them to smithereens. Travolta is one of the world’s most well-known followers of Scientology.
