USA national team manager Juergen Klinsmann is trying his hand as a helicopter pilot.

Sports Illustrated reports that the German tactician has been using his chopper license to fly from home in Orange County to the US training camp in Los Angeles every day as his side prepares for upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Klinsmann, who earns $2.5million a year, pilots his own helicopter for the 70-mile round trip and sees it as a good way to continue spending time with his family and get in more hours in as a pilot.
