Tom struggled to learn how to fly at first because of his dyslexia: “I just blew it off. When people asked me what happened, I told them I was too busy preparing for the film, just didn’t have time. The truth is, I couldn’t learn how to do it.” He was able to overcome his problem and studied hard: “When I was studying for my pilot’s license, I kept a model airplane nearby as a reference and pictures of a cockpit in front of me, so I could study the instruments. I would go over to a shop where mechanics were working on planes.”
