Shahid Kapoor, a trend setter of some sorts, is known for doing some very unique things, be it for his performances or for his movies. This time around he has gone to a whole new level and has decided to become a pilot, and not just for any old plane but the one that no actor has ever got the chance to sit in! 

It has been confirmed that Shahid will be participating in the Aero India 2011 contest that is being held in Bangalore on February 11th. He will notibly be the first actor in the whole world to be flying an F-16 IN Super Viper fighter plane, one of the fastest planes ever. Before him, Ratan Tata was the only Indian to be allowed the privilege of flying the F16.

Shahid has been said to have gone through rigorous training the last one month and will continue to do so until his flying date. Along with the training, he had to go through a few medical tests to make sure he did not suffer from motion sickness and can safely fly at high velocity. Fortunately he has passed most of the tests and only a few remain which will take place in the upcoming days.

Before the competition, Shahid will run a flight stimulation test at the Indian Air Force Station Yelahanka where he will run through a mock up the competition day itself, almost like a rehearsal. 

This is a great opportunity for Shahid to learn the different aspects of flying a plane since he plays an Air Force pilot in his next venture. Mausum, directed by his father, the renowned actor Pankaj Kapoor, stars Sonam Kapoor opposite him.
 
Just like his career is on a high, here's hoping Shahid has a great time being up in the sky!

First Look: Shahid Kapoor flies in F-16 at air show

First Look: Shahid Kapoor flies in F-16 at air showBollywood hero Shahid Kapoor Saturday flew in an American F-16 fighter at the AeroIndia 2011 military-cum-civil aviation trade expo on the outskirts of this aerospace hub.

"It was a thrilling experience, which will help me in the role as a fighter pilot in my forthcoming film 'Mausam', " a beaming Kapoor told reporters after a 40-minute sortie at the Indian Air Force (IAF) air base near Yelahanka, about 20 km from the city.

The F-16IN Super Viper was flown by Lockheed Martin's test pilot Paul 'Bear' Randall on mission mode and was escorted by another F-16 flown by test pilot Jim Hedges and a US Air Force pilot.

"Though Kapoor didn't take controls of the aircraft mid-air, the flight was operated on mission mode for about 40 minutes with AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radar, " a company spokesperson told IANS.

Prior to the flight on the fourth day of the five-day biennial mega air show, Kapoor underwent mandatory health check-ups and was found fit to fly in the combat aircraft.

"It's a huge honour and privilege to fly such a magnificent aircraft. I wanted to have real-time experience of flying a fighter before action in the movie, " the 30-year-old actor said.

A couple of hours before the take-off, Kapoor was familiarised with the operations of the aircraft and made to 'fly' it in a simulator by Lockheed Martin's test pilots and engineers.

"I have been preparing for this event with rigorous training over the last one month. The tests included flying at a very high velocity and making sure I would not suffer from motion sickness, " Kapoor recalled.

Kapoor is the latest to join the likes of Tata group chairman Ratan Tata, IAF Wing Commander (Retd) Rakesh Sharma and Lok Sabha member from Haryana Navin Jindal to have flown in the tandem-seater fly-by-wire supersonic F-16

"It's a great experience and I learnt how to fly a fighter. Paul (the pilot) gave me lot of tips about flying such an awesome military aircraft and I am thankful to Lockheed Martin, " he said.

The US-based Lockheed's F-16 is in contention for the estimated $10-billion Indian tender to supply 126 medium multi-role combat aircraft (MMRCA) to the IAF along with five global aerospace majors -- F/A-18 Super Hornet of Boeing, Gripen of Saab, Rafale of French Dassault, Typhoon of Eurofighter and MiG-35 of Russian MiG Corporation.

"Mausam" is being directed by Shahid's father Pankaj Kapoor, in which the younger would play the role of a fighter pilot opposite Sonam Kapoor. The film is due for release in July.

Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni too visited the air show at the closing hours and went around the base where various aircraft and helicopters were on display.
