Dickinson is the lead singer of IRON MAIDEN, a commercial pilot, businessman, entrepreneur, creative business thinker and international fencer. Bruce was a pilot and marketing director for Astraeus Airlines, which went into administration and is in the process of coming out of liquidation. In addition, Bruce has government funding to create an aircraft maintenance company creating 1500 jobs in Wales. Bruce is involved in an air ship venture to manufacture lighter than air drones with a contract to supply the U.S. Army. He is also setting up a separate training company (Real World Aviation) to train future pilots. Bruce left IRON MAIDEN in 1993 in order to pursue a solo career, his passion for fencing and an interest in becoming a pilot. Bruce rejoined the band in 1999 and has gone on to release four albums; despite this, he hasn't stopped flying Boeing 757s.
