TBH I don't like the idea of a Bat Plane of any sort in the Nolan verse, just doesn't seem to fit.
If you're taking issue with the concept, I'd say it fits about as well as a millionaire dressed in a bat-themed costume, a bad guy dressed as a clown or a microwave device that could cook a city's water supply. If you're talking about the use of a plane in general, then yeah, it doesn't seem all that practical to use a plane to fight crime in a city. If indeed a plane will be used, I can't wait to see how. Maybe he'll use it to leave Gotham City.

I think after how Bruce arranged his trip to Hong Kong he probably thought...wow it'd be useful to have my own plane.

And he needs to take flying lessons first, I guess.

Which reminds me that they forgot about essential parts in Begins and TDK. He spent like 7 years in Ninja training, but how did he become expert in flying with his batwings? It's not something you should or could teach yourself, I guess.

I am sure there are deleted scenes that exist out there that show Batman flying into walls and other buildings.

Lets not forget Wayne's playboy image - fast cars, fast women, why not get into fast jets? He could by a vintage fighter Jet (e.g the F-86 or if he could keep in South Africa say a Buccaneer) and use that as a cover to take flying lessons.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I can see Bruce going to Lucius and asking him if they have any experimental planes in development he could procure for his use. We know Wayne Enterprises had military contracts before Earle pulled the plug on the their old projects. What we don't know is the extent of them.

but he might be a more cautious this time in case some-one else does a bit of snooping and find the missing stuff that could link Bruce Wayne to Batman.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ Exactly. Part of the genius of these movies is to show Bruce fallible and capable of making mistakes. The thing with Reese is just an example of this. I really believe that the underlying main theme of all three of these films will be Bruce evolving into becoming the Batman we all know and love from the comics. "The World's Greatest Detective". These are snippets of that journey.

In the book Bruce took some hang gliding lessons

Remember when everyone was convinced that Mr.Reese was "mysteries" and was going to become the Riddler? Good times.

So, so wrong, but good times nonetheless.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

When I first saw the tumbler in early promos I thought

Then I saw the film and started to appreciate it. It made far more sense for something that will take a beating than a sleek stylized coupe. I hope they bring the tumbler back in some fashion.

The only think I didn't like was the bit of him laying down face forward for some maneuver or whatever---it was stupid.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I can't see a use for a "Batplane" I think Nolan will go back to a car/tumbler for the final installment. Also there's no way Robin will turn up. Nolan's too clever for that.
