Former Falcon Crest star-turned-reality Tv regular Lorenzo Lamas has taken up a new job as a helicopter tour guide.

The trained pilot regularly hits the skies over Los Angeles to treat tourists to a bird's eye view of Hollywood.

In a recently taped episode of Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, which will air in America on Sunday (03Aug14), he explains, "I work for Elite Helicopter Tours out of Van Nuys, California. I'm a tour pilot.

"Every day I am working on my aviation career, so that I don't have to think about working as an actor. You can't count on things happening if you're not in control of them happening. And I'm in control of things happening in my aviation career and I'm not in my acting career. So I love to act, but aviation is paying the bills now."
