Angelina buys Brad a helicopter

15 May 2012, 11:24

 Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie has bought her fiancé Brad Pitt a helicopter and flying lessons.

The 36-year-old actress apparently spent £1m on the aircraft and flying lessons for Brad Pitt to go with the parking spot they happened to have built onto their European property.

A source told The Sun: "They've had a helicopter pad installed in the grounds of their south of France home, Chateau Miraval.

"So Ange thought it would be nice to buy Brad a helicopter as a surprise present."

To and from Cannes

Apparently the pair, who are parents to six biological and adopted children, will be using the mode of transport to get to nearby events.

The insider continued: "In particular, they would like to be able to fly to and from Cannes.

"But even though Brad has his private pilot's licence, he still needs to take a few flying lessons - which he'll start straight away."

Meanwhile the couple finally seem to be putting any tension between Brad's ex-wife Jennifer Anistion and them in the past.

According to reports, the Friends actress sent them a £500 bouquet of flowers ahead of this week's Cannes Film Festival, to congratulate them on their engagement.

Brad had earlier sent her a case of his Chateau Miraval wine.
