David learned how to fly one of the top-performing aerobatic airplanes before his 16th birthday and is now a licensed commercial pilot. “An awful lot of kids who grow up with privilege do silly things,” Ellison told GQ. “David matured quickly, I think because of the flying. He knew the kind of flying he was doing, it’s not like a video game, there are no extra lives.”
