Travis Barker flew on an airplane for the first time in 13 years after seriously injuring and killing four people in a plane crash.

In 2008, the Blink-182 drummer was involved in a traumatic plane crash when his private jet crashed while taking off at a South Carolina airport, killing four of the six passengers on board.

Travis’ friend and security guard Charles « Che » Still, assistant Chris Baker, pilot Sarah Lemmon and co-pilot James Bland unfortunately died. Travis and his friend Adam « DJ AM » Goldstein, who tried to put out the flames on Travis’ body with his t-shirt, survived the impact. Sadly, Adam died of a prescription drug overdose just a year later, making Travis the last survivor of the crash.

After the crash, Travis had a long road to recovery. He suffered third degree burns on 65% of his body, spent 11 weeks in the hospital and underwent 27 operations. Travis almost had his foot amputated because he didn’t have enough skin on his body for his skin grafts. He was also left with a survivor’s guilt and post-traumatic stress disorder. « It’s obviously the most painful experience I’ve ever had, » he told Larry King in 2015.

Based on his experience, Travis vowed never to fly again and used coaches and cruise ships to travel for work. That was until June when he tweeted, « I could fly again. » He has finally overcome his fears.

On Saturday (August 14), Travis was pictured with his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian boarding a private jet. It’s the first time he’s flown since the crash. The pictures TMZ received show Kourtney leading Travis to the plane that was flying to Cabo, Mexico. The pair were also joined by Kourtney’s mom, Kris Jenner, and boyfriend Corey Gamble.

A source told PEOPLE that Kourtney reportedly supported Travis throughout his trip. “It’s a big deal that Travis flew to Cabo. The plane crash many years ago was extremely traumatic. It took a lot of help to get to that point, « the source revealed.

 » Kourtney has been very supportive. She never made him fly.
