Dierks Bentley didn't just get his pilot's license, he also bought a plane.
Dierks picked up his custom Cirrus SR22T Xi plane in Duluth, Minn., right from the Cirrus plant last week, but not before taking a course training him to fly that specific aircraft.
The company's executive director of marketing, Debbie Breemeersch, told Duluth's News Tribune , "We are grateful for each of our customers, and that Dierks is also a country music star is an added bonus."
Cirrus worked with Dierks to make sure the custom-built plane suited his specific needs and specifications.
Tim McGraw also owns a Cirrus and talks about the joys of flying it in a promotional video .
