The charge: Travolta's pilots are said to have embezzled about $800,000

John Travolta is an avid pilot and runs his own airline. Two of his pilots are said to have defrauded the company out of nearly $800,000.

In the late 1970s, John Travolta became a star in films such as Saturday Night Fever and Grease. He marked his international comeback in 1994 in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. In addition to acting, his biggest passion is flying.

Travolta got his first flying lessons at the age of 16, his first plane at the age of 20, and his pilot's license at the age of 23. He owns several airplanes and lives in the aviation community of Jumbolier near Ocala, Florida. Part of the facility is an asphalt runway approximately 2.3 km long. The 1980s Hollywood heartthrob temporarily parked his 707 next to his home in Jambuler. In 2018, he personally flew it to the museum.

Damage is about $800,000

Today, Travolta owns, among other things, two Dassault Falcon 2000 business jets and an Eclipse 500. To operate the plane, the actor founded his own company, Constellation, and hired several employees, pilots and mechanics. Local police authorities have now arrested two former pilots from his company.

The accusation is serious and systematic. Jordan Corsi and Jean-Paul Lacruz Romero are said to be part of a network that reportedly facilitated Travolta out of a total of $785,000, AIN reports. The two used an outside company, Lux Fuels, to sell Constellation expensive gas.

No reaction from Travolta

According to the police report, La Cruz Romero collected approximately $382,000 in “fraudulent funds” from Lux Fuels. His partner, Corsi, received approximately $305,000. John Travolta has not commented publicly yet.
