He asked for an hour flight time ($150) in a local Cessna. He has taken enough lessons to get his license, but vision problems keep him from getting his license.
F430 Spider would be a good time, I spent a bit of time in one of those. Is the instructor present for the whole hour? Probably, that is why it is so cheap. I don't do heights/flying, so I can't comment on that.
Would you be getting him these in addition to an hour flight time in a Cessna? If so, I'd go with the one hour in a Lamborghini. If this is instead of the Cessna, I'd get time in one of the airplanes.
For me, none of these excite me that much. An hour in a Lamborghini would be fun, but if I were to rent one, I'd want to have it for a day or at least a good part of a day to actually go somewhere. Though I'm sure that's expensive - for the rental and the speeding tickets.
i say if he asked for time in the Cessna, that would be the way to go if you're going to give one gift. might feel it out and see if he's a car person; i have a friend who almost got his pilot's license and loves to fly, but doesn't really care what he drives and probably wouldn't care for a limited amount of time in an exotic car.
i'm a "thing" person, so i'd prefer something i can enjoy/use every day as opposed a one-hour experience, but that's just me.
Like others have said, depends on if you're getting one or both. I think if he wants the flight time and you'd be getting him one of the choices, go with the flight time. He'll probably appreciate it more.
Personally, I'll take an hour with the SLS AMG (on a track, I hope), since it's my current-production dream car.
