If there’s one thing Tom Cruise knows, it’s how to arrive in style.

The actor touched down for the highly-anticipated “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere in a USS Midway helicopter he piloted himself, before casually strolling onto the red carpet in San Diego, Calif. on Wednesday.

The 59-year-old — who is famous for doing his own stunts in films — rocked up to the star-studded event looking dapper as ever, sporting a black tux for the overdue occasion.

After successfully landing the aircraft right on the flight deck, Cruise was all smiles as he waved to a massive crowd of diehard fans who have patiently waited 36 years since the original film.

Eagle-eyed fans even spotted a key detail on his chopper, which read, “Tom Cruise Top Gun: Maverick.”

The father-of-three posed for pictures with co-stars Jennifer Connelly, Monica Barbaro, and Miles Teller in front of a sea of cameras.

Teller, 35, donned a blue suit with a matching tie for the occasion, before putting on a loved-up display with wife, Keleigh Sperry.

Teller plays Goose’s son and Maverick’s new protege in the movie. Goose, the co-pilot to Cruise’s character in the original, was played by Anthony Edwards.

Connelly opted for a show-stopping gold gown for the premiere, where she and longtime husband, Paul Bettany, packed on the PDA as they linked arms on the red carpet.

The sure-to-be blockbuster film was originally set to be released in 2019 but was delayed repeatedly as a result of the pandemic

The hotly-awaited sequel is set in a world of drone technology and explores the end of the era of dogfighting, with Cruise portraying a flight instructor.

In addition to a starry cast of new pilots, Val Kilmer will reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.

The original film was a massive success, grossing more than $350 million worldwide on a $15 million budget.

“Top Gun: Maverick” lands in theaters on May 27.
