Little does the world know that Morgan Freeman is one of the very few pilot actors that have made their impression so strong all over the world. And now the very talented star has got himself a Christmas gift in the form a fancy new private jet. Gulf News tell us that Freeman purchased the SJ30 plane from Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation. This organisational body is a subsidiary of United Arab Emirates-based Emivest. Early this year, we learnt that this aircraft has set a world record by taking only 7 hours and 7 minutes from London to get to Dubai. This time period includes a fuel stop in Istanbul.
This one is a six-seater and has the ability to retain sea level cabin pressure even at 41,000 ft, which helps reduce jet lag. A very powerful and realiable machine, it can fly more than 2,800 miles without a break at a speed of 630 mph.
Freeman spent a huge $8 million for this beauty. And he is making good use of it. Apparently, this was his new stead when he am to attend a press conference at the Executive Flight Center from his home in LA to Dubai Airport Free Zone.
