While not playing music, Gilmour often takes to the skies. He is a pilot and, for a time, collected antique aircraft auspices of his company, Intrepid Aviation. He has since sold the company, but kept a biplane for his personal use.
Gilmour is actively involved in philanthropy and, notably, sold his home in West London and donated the proceeds—more than $5.5 million—to Crisis,
a nonprofit organization that works to provide services to the homeless. Gilmour has also been involved with Oxfam, Greenpeace and Amnesty International, among other charitable organizations.
