If you're including bizjets, I did. I flew jumpseat on a very early Gulfstream 2 (S/N 2) from BUR to VNY which is a distance of about 10 miles. We never even exceeded 2,500AGL and were airborne for only about 7 minutes which included a newly hired flying copilot. What was also excellent about the experience was the fact that my brother, my friend and his mom were also on board. The takeoff was with a light load but the pilot glued us to our seats with a FULL POWER departure! What a blast.

I was very fortunate a couple of years ago and flew stand-by on a Lufthansa 747-400 from Mexico to Frankfurt. The plane was packed so I got the cockpit jumpseat. It was the best experience I've ever had and the captain even gave me the sectional charts afterwards.

Unforgettable Experience!!!!
It happend on a brand new B757-200 (XA-KWK) GD.
My mother told the cabin crew that one of my biggest dreams was to be a pilot, so two minutes later the pilot went to my seat and invited me to join him for the entire flight.
It was a 3,1/2 hour flight from TIJ (Tijuana) to MEX (Mexico City).
I will never forget that flight and thanks to Captain Carrada.
