Planes, Pilots, and People of Joy Air

Meet The Crew

The Father-Son team that started it all

We are unapologetically addicted to flying. My dad bought his first airplane when I was in 4th grade and consistently offered free airplane rides to everyone he met. It wasn’t until I got my pilot’s license in high school that I started to understand why my dad was hooked on flying. It didn’t matter where we were going, or what we saw out the window, every person always had a huge smile on their face. There’s nothing quite like watching someone experience flight for the first time, so we started Joy Air to share the joy of aviation with you.

On A Mission

Safety First

Whether on the ground or in-flight, safety is top priority. Strictly maintained airplanes and adherence to FAA standards elevate your safety above financial gain.

Smile-worthy

Our team is dedicated to providing a fun flight experience for every passenger. Dad jokes included.

Affordable

Everyone deserves to experience the view from up here. We keep pricing accessible, so you can spend more time looking out the window.

Launch Pad for Pilots

With an increasing shortage of pilots in the US, we serve as one of a few platforms for commercial pilots to be paid fairly while training for an airline career.
