Bruce Dickinson earns an eye-watering wage with his unexpected side hustle.

The Iron Maiden rocker, 65, is a qualified pilot and is said to rake in £400,000 a month from his aircraft maintenance company Caerdav, which he has run since 2012.




According to Companies House, it is one of the musician’s thirteen board positions. He told the Mirror: “I won’t go into the gory details but it was a money pit for a long time.

“One of the reasons for that is I was so busy working, trying to put money into it, that I wasn’t there long enough to make sure people weren’t ripping me off. Anyway, I ended up focusing on it a lot more, because it cost a small fortune, and we turned it around. We are now making a net profit of £400,000 every month, and we are in business until the end of 2026.”

Bruce, who lives in Paris with his girlfriend Leana Dolci, has given up flying because he “doesn’t want to widow Leana before her time”. It comes after he was branded a “f**king a***hole” by Sharon Osbourne. Mrs O has claimed the rocker is “jealous” of her husband Ozzy Osbourne.

Bruce and Sharon first fell out about 15 years ago when Maiden were headlining an Ozzfest tour and Bruce was accused of criticizing Ozzy on stage. Bruce even said his band would never perform “on a reality show,” during an apparent dig at Black Sabbath’s MTV series, The Osbournes.
