Hypothetical: what if each of us were granted 10 minutes of flight within our lives?

In the 90's my husband, our friend and I were installing a window on the 2nd floor of our home.  As we pushed, pulled and balanced getting the heavy thing up a ladder I said, "Wouldn't it be great if everyone was given the ability to fly for a total of 10 minutes within each lifetime?  We could have used the ability just now."  Our friend promptly responded, "Nah, we'd have wasted it all by now." 

Would you waste it?  Would you savor it, use it wisely in a practical manner?  Save it for work as good samaritan?  Would people organize their efforts?  Would Americans use flight differently from say Papua New Guineans? 

Maybe I have the start of a science fiction story...
