Club Facilities


Upper Fifteen, Inc. has been based at Albany International Airport for over

fifty years. New members do not need to be licensed pilots to join. We're

looking for people who are enthusiastic about flying and about continuing to

improve their flying skills and experience. Safe flying has been our goal

from the very beginning. Our fine safety record stems from responsible and

cooperative members, aided by dedicated and experienced instructors.

Upper Fifteen is the one of the oldest flying clubs in New York State and

among the oldest in the United States. Founded in 1948 as the Siena College

Flying Club, Upper Fifteen today provides highly-equipped aircraft and

basic-to-advanced training opportunities for Capital District pilots. The

Club limits membership to assure good access to aircraft. We are currently

open to new members. Scheduling policies are liberal and flexible, with

greater latitude allowed to student pilots. Convenient base at ALB, a

full-service, all-weather regional hub Fully-IFR, Cessna 172P & 177RG.
