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 had a habit of offering free plane rides to anyone and everyone. It didn’t matter where we were going or what we saw out the window, every new passenger always had a smile on their face. There is nothing like watching someone experience flight for the first time, so we started Joy Air with the dream to share this joy of aviation with more people just like you. Our flight crew now welcomes hundreds of passengers each year and we regularly get to be the best part of someone’s vacation, birthday, anniversary, engagement or graduation celebration. It’s working!

The Joy Air Story
Four Generations of Aviation.
Jungle airstrips, medical emergencies, farming innovations, and bison burgers. Joy Air was born from a long legacy of aviators, and 60+ years flying for the good of others.
The Cessna 172 is the ideal air tour machine. There’s a reason it’s the most popular aircraft in history.
