Pitt takes to the skies

Brad Pitt has found a new hobby to pass the time while Angelina Jolie shoots her new movie in New York - he's taking flying lessons.

The couple and their six kids have set up home in the outskirts of the city while Jolie shoots 'Salt'.

And Pitt has been sneaking off to take to the skies.

The actor was spotted jumping into a small single engine plane for a lesson.

It's not the first time Pitt has tried his hand at flying - the actor took helicopter lessons while shooting movie 'Inglourious Basterds' in the Czech Republic in 2007
