Hunter Hayes has been taking some time away from his main passion of music to get his pilot’s license. According to The Boot (quote via WENN news), Hunter says, “I’ve got tons of hours on a flight simulator. Anytime I can go fly for a few hours, I go. It’s stressful and stress-relieving at the same time. You’ve got five or six things you’ve got to pay attention to. But I’m a geek — flying is so tailored to me.” There’s no word on how many flying hours he has left before he is a licensed pilot, but perhaps he’ll be able to fly himself to some of the shows on Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away Tour, which will re-launch on February 13th.
