Our base at Goodwood is ideally situated at the Historic Goodwood Racetrack to enable us to incorporate Track Experiences, Go-Karting or even Skid-Pan experiences with different types of Helicopter flying.

Once you have decided where you would like to conduct your activity day, all you have to do is choose which activities you would like to do. Below are a list of activities that are available, including prices. However if you don’t see the activity you were after, then feel free to contact one of our team members who will be happy to try and organise a day more to your taste.
One of the exciting activities offered as part of Phoenix Helicopters corporate day’s package: the hover challenge enables your whole party to have a go at flying a helicopter with one of our qualified instructors.
The challenge takes place in one of our Robinson R22 training helicopters, you will receive a full brief prior to flying, outlining how the controls work and the principle of how you hover and fly the aircraft and safety protocol. Each person will then take to the air with their instructor for 10 to 15 minutes to put the theory into practice. Your colleagues can then watch as you take your lesson adding that competitive edge to the day.
Trial lessons are a fantastic way of not only experiencing a flight in a helicopter, but actually getting your hands on the controls. Our dedicated and experienced instructors will take you through a few of the exercises of learning to fly a helicopter.
This activity can be for all sized groups and may be conducted in either the Robinson R22 (2 seater) aircraft, or the Robinson R44 (4 seater) aircraft. If the R44 is used, two passengers may also accompany the instructor and student.
Each student will be given a full briefing on the effects of the controls and safety before their lesson, and a full de-brief after.
Lessons can be as little as 15 minutes long or as much as an hour long, depending on group size and budget.
Pleasure and Buzz Flights
If taking controls of the aircraft is not for you, then why not sit back and enjoy one of our Pleasure or Buzz Flights.
Pleasure Flights can be conducted for any sized group, whether as an extra whilst others are trying out on the Hover Challenge or as an experience to see the world from another perspective. Our Robinson R44 Helicopter can take up to three passengers at a time, and flights can start from just 10 minutes long.
Some areas visited on our Pleasure Flights are, Brighton, Portsmouth, London, Surrey & Thames Valley, and the South Downs.
Pleasure Flights can also be used to take passengers to nearby Hotels for lunch, afternoon tea or for a relaxing SPA day. Please speak to one of our helpful team members for more information and ideas.
Take some thrills and spills and pit yourself against your friends or co-workers on the Karting track.
The Go-Karting activity is better suited to larger groups and can be a brilliant way to start off a hen or stag do, or even to challenge yourself against your colleagues. This thrilling experience will guarantee to get you and your group talking and laughing.
