They are both avid aviators and money is no object.
So it isn't too hard to believe that Angelina Jolie has splashed out nearly 1million on a helicopter for Brad Pitt, according to reports.
The actress is said to have bought the luxury ride to go with a helicopter pad said to be installed in the grounds of their home in France.

Last month Hollywood's golden couple confirmed they were engaged and shortly after the news emerged they took their six children on a holiday to the Galapagos Islands.
Brad might be learning to ride a helicopter in time for his and Angelina's nuptials which is thought to be taking place at their home in France.
The lavish property has undergone extensive renovation in recent weeks and the new finished article looks superb.
As with most celebrities, Brad, 48, and Angelina, 36, will be desperate for some privacy on their big day and the expansive size of the 35million estate in the South of France will host them well.
While the pair have remained tight-lipped about their wedding, which will no doubt be the showbiz event of the year, it has been rumoured the pair will be tying the knot in August.
