No sooner than Nicole Richie confirms her engagement to BF Joel Madden then she takes to the air – piloting a plane to Montreal!

Like a flying Valkyrie of yore, Nicole went airborne to the bilingual city to promo her fashion lines Winter Kate and House of Harlow.

Needless to say such an event was not to remain unnoticed and Avatrix Nic blogged about her aerial endeavor.

"This past Thursday, I flew to Montreal… and by flew, I mean I actually flew," Nicole gushed.

"My partners, Rick and Brian, let me be the co-pilot once again on their jet! It was so much fun!

"Now if only everyone else on the flight felt the same way."

Richie’s not the only beauty to earn her wings – Gisele Bundchen is closing in on a pilot’s license  while Hilary Swank and Angelina Jolie have both taken lessons.
