Angelina Jolie is cruising the skies again. After settling into s rented estate near Calgary with Brad Pitt, Maddox and Zahara, Angelina had her instructor fly from the U.K. to Canada to continue private lessons on her $434,000 Cirrus SR22 airplane, which is equipped with a whole-plane parachute that can be activated if she loses control of the aircraft. Already a licensed private pilot, she's now tackling the tough task of learning to fly using only instruments. "She is a completely competent, confident flyer," says a source, noting that Jolie has bonded with other female flyers-to-be at the local hangar. "She just beams in the cockpit." Her tail number may help: It contains the letters "MX" in honor of her son.
