our 12th year in business!!
Welcome to Guaranteed Flight
Training , San Diego’s premier destination for private “one on
one” Flight Instruction.
Hello and Welcome to my Webpage
My name is Michael Upton and I am celebrating my 11th year in
business as a professional full time Flight Instructor. I’ve
logged over 7500 hours of flight experience and personally
trained hundreds of pilots and student pilots for various
certificates , ratings, initial and currency training.
What sets me apart from of other flight instructors is something
you can’t buy... EXPERIENCE ! I believe I offer the highest
quality flight training and the best “value to services
rendered” in the area for personalized one on one flight
training. Please feel free to look around and learn about my
For those of you who are just starting out , flying is a
wonderful privilege. It allows you to develop a level of skill,
confidence and self-reliance that is not found in other
pursuits. When you become a pilot your world truly becomes a
smaller place. What was once an hour and a half drive to a dock
to take a one-hour boat ride to Catalina Island is now a
30-minute flight. How about flying the Baja peninsula and
stopping at exclusive fly-in resorts? Or using an aircraft for
travel to business meetings…Los Angeles is no longer a day out
of your life stuck on a moving parking lot for a brief business
meeting. Do not forget the romance of taking someone special on
a sunset flight. Your aircraft and abilities are the only limits
to your flying adventures.
Thank you for visiting my website!
Guaranteed Flight Training can make your dream of flying into a
reality…our "intro flights" are approximately an hour in length
(not 15-20 minutes of flight time like most other intro
flights) which allows for enough flight time to truly asses your
capabilities. The flights are a “completely hands on” experience
for a prospective pilot/adventurer. You will do most of the
flying and be given an honest evaluation of your potential by an
experienced flight instructor. You can officially log the time
you fly for purposes of training towards a certificate. We use 4
seat aircraft, so you are welcome to bring someone along to
experience the flight with you. They also make a unique gift @
