While Dickinson, a pilot in his own right, has made his fame and fortune singing for the wildly popular UK band over the last 30 years, he is no amateur when it comes to aviation. Dickinson is not only a licensed airline pilot, but he is now launching an aviation maintenance business in Wales that will service Boeing and Airbus airliners.
Bruce is currently flying with his band and crew around the world on their concert tour on a modified 757. And yes, he IS the pilot.
