Joy flights have become increasingly popular as gift experiences for loved ones or friends. Most of the flying schools offer joy flights such as aerobatic flights (for the adrenalin junkie), tiger moth flights and other hands-on flying lessons in light aircrafts from as low as $149 per half hour (prices vary according to schools and type of plane).
An experienced and licensed pilot will provide pre-flight training and assist you during takeoff and landing. If you feel confident enough, you can pretty much steer the plane in the direction you fancy. The pilot can take over the controls at anytime during the flight so you feel safe to explore and push your limits.
