London: Grammy winning singer Adele has applied for a helicopter landing license so she can commute easily from her new country mansion.

The 23-year-old `Someone Like You` hitmaker is tired of dealing with traffic when she commutes from her rented 15,000 pounds a month country estate in Sussex, South East England, and has decided to make flying her primary form of transport if a chopper can land in the grounds, reported Sun online.

"Adele`s property has so much land she thought, `Why not?` It will cut down her journey time by some distance and it also means she won`t have to rely so heavily on cars. She is a busy woman and needs to get places with minimal disruption," a source said.

Until she moved into the palatial pad, which has 10 bedrooms, two swimming pools, a helipad cellar, tennis courts, a games room and its own media centre, the soul singer was living with her mother in Tottenham, north London.
