When you're Jerry Jones, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Cowboys, you can do anything you want.

Including taking a helicopter to work. 

Jones, who lives in the affluent neighborhood of Highland Park within Dallas, told reporters Thursday it takes about eight minutes to get from his home to the Cowboys' new practice facility in Frisco in his new helicopter.

Talk about one way to beat the stagnant Dallas traffic. 

Jones was even kind enough to take media members up in the air in his new ride.
