Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson is set to make history. Dickinson, who is also a commercially licensed pilot, will get behind the controls and captain one of the first post-Hurricane Irene flights out of the metro New York City area. Dickinson will pilot a flight from Newark, N.J. to Reykjavik, Iceland. The passenger load will be around 200 people and the singer will fly for Iceland Express, a budget airline.

Hurricane Irene caused plenty of nightmares for travelers, as many airports were shut down, stranding thousands of people for days. As a result, several days worth of flights began backing up.

Dickinson is an accredited pilot and serves as the marketing director for Astraeus Airlines. In addition to, you know, singing for one of the biggest British metal bands of all time.
