From Carrie HoodI've got two I can recall off the top of my own head, without looking at stats. It seems like they give you just tons of air time.

Nitro at SF Great Adventure
From James RaoVoyage does have a ton of airtime. The NEW Texas Giant is pretty sweet for air as well. The old standby is Apollo's Chariot, which is an airtime machine. Finally, there's a stretch after the first hill and turn on the Titan where you are out of your seat for what feels like an eternity.

Those are probably my favorites...
From Anthony MurphyRaging Bull is a great smooth coaster with lots of airtime

From Melissa DonahueFor me, I think Diamondback at Kings Island has the most airtime. I've been on The Voyage and all of the Cedar Point coasters, and I'd still say Dback as my first choice.

From Mike GallagherI had my first rides on Quassy's Wooden Warrior last weekend (I've been trying to post a trip report but have been unsuccessful) The ride, while obviously not a mega-coaster, is a heckuva lotta fun and packs its less-than-a-minute ride time with some serious air.

Others mentioned Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull..I got next to nothing on those rides as far as airtime goes.

From Adam NewmanAt Kennywood Sky Rocket has great airtime and the Jack Rabbit airtime while not that long is insane with lots of room for lift on the double dip.

From Melissa DonahueI forgot about Maverick at Cedar Point... Definitely get some lift out of your seat on this coaster, too!

From Dave StroemNot in any particular order

But the winner is
Of course on some days a coaster may not produce as much air as on other days. Your body size or seat choice can also make a big difference.
From Dennis GonsoulinThe New Texas Giant is airtime heaven.
