We operate out of Burlington Airport (CZBA) in beautiful southern Ontario Canada just a short drive from Downtown Toronto. We can even come to your location if you require.

Upright started as an idea 10 years ago to enhance pilot training and safety. We have 3 generations of pilots in our family. In fact, we have 2 women commercial instrument rated, as well as 4 airline pilots with charter, bush, military, international, corporate, medivac, and aerobatic experience.   Between Geoff and his father alone they have over 71 years and 30,000 hours of flying experience.
