Aviation began as an abstract dream yet through persistence and ingenuity this abstract fantasy revolutionized the existence of human kind. Tom Cruise’s passion for aviation is more than a simple pastime but a true symbol of perseverance and patriotism.
Tom Cruise was recently awarded the “Top Aviation Inspiration and Patriotism Award” for his contribution to the aviation industry. As a child, Tom hung a photo of a P-51 mustang on his wall, yet little did he know the impact his career would have on young aspiring pilots like himself. A tenacious work ethic led for him to star in a series of roles including that of Maverick in the movie “Top Gun,” which excited the imagination of all who witnessed the struggle and subsequent victory of Maverick. All recipients of the recent “Legends of Aviation” awards have different extraordinary stories of how they overcame obstacles to make history…and they all began with a dream.
Congratulations again, Tom! We share your joy in this honor. Take a look at the rest of the honorees of this prestigious award; from celebrities to astronauts, these individuals challenge us to make our our dreams a reality: Legends of Aviation Awards–Red Carpet
