London, April 23

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has revealed her nine-year-old son Knox is following in her footsteps and is learning to fly a plane.

Jolie got her pilot's licence in 2004 after she was inspired to train while watching planes taking off and landing at an airfield where she and son Maddox used to have lunch.

'I love being up in the air. I love the freedom. Knox is now learning to fly.

"It makes me crazy happy to see him discover it. He still needs help with the pedals, but won't for long," Jolie said in "The Queen's Green Planet" documentary.

The "Maleficent" star was seen in the documentary jetting over the Namibian desert in the pilot's chair of a small plane. PTI
