For those metal fans who weren't aware, Bruce Dickinson is actually a commercial airline pilot. Here's a cool article (old) with his thoughts on flying and singing.

I'm an old Iron Maiden fan. It's just the mental thought of someone who made their profession in music that later in life became a commercial airline pilot that may keep me off their plane.

Personally, I like my airline pilots to start off a career at a young age either in the civilian or military version of flight training. All the while keeping aviation their main focus.

Nothing against anyone that does it the other way around. I just compare commercial pilots to doctors. I like my doctors to have medicine as their main career choice.

Now, there's got to be a commercial pilot or a doctor that has later in life become a musician. There are certainly actors that have made this move. But, the only ones I've heard play, kind of suck. I don't want my musician turned pilot to kind of suck, too.
