Jenner has been a pilot since 1976, when she began her training in a Cessna 152 at Santa Monica Municipal Airport, California.
Tellingly, she bought planes, including a Pitts and a Mitsubishi MU-2 AOPA in 2016: “The best part, though, was the unadulterated joy of flying my ultralight seaplane from my home on Lake Tahoe.”
In 2016, she also purchased a 1978 Beech Bonanza V35B, complete with a custom glass cockpit.
This comes after Jenner opened up about why she was attracted to ex-wife Kris Jenner from the moment they met.
The former reality star shared The times the couple met on a blind date in 1990.
“We hit it off right from the start,” Caitlyn, who was married to Kris for 23 years, told the outlet.
‘I was in love with her because she was very different from me.’
“But yes, I have to say: it was love at first sight.”

Kris, who shared children Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob with her former husband, the late OJ Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian, was “basically a housewife in Beverly Hills” at the time they met and married.
‘I was totally in awe of her and the way she lived her life – she had four children, I had four children… and we got married five and a half months later! It happened very quickly.’
The decathlon winner didn’t know the woman he would be with, 27-year-old Kendall and 26-year-old Kylie, would have such an appetite for business.
“I had no idea what the future had in store for us,” Caitlyn, whose name was Bruce Jenner at the time, explained.
“I don’t think she even did that.”
Kris took over the reins by purchasing Caitlyn’s company, opening up jobs and creating informercials for the family.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted in 2007.
The show would make most of the members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan household names, while capturing their antics on television.

Caitlyn and Kris divorced in 2015 after 22 years together.
Caitlyn told The Times that she is single and happy. ‘I’m fine. I’m not even looking for a relationship yet,” she argued.
“I will never be in a relationship again in the future. I just don’t see that in my life. That’s not what I’m looking for.’
