Blackbushe Air Day A Huge Success!

After months of hard work and preperation, the Blackbushe Air Day 2016 was a resounding success. Airfield based companies such as Phoenix were given the opportunity to display their aircraft and open their facilities to the public. Pheonix staff and instructors took the opportunity to meet new potential students as well as future pleasure flight passengers. The morning's cloud and drizzly rain cleared for a fantastic day of flying with 6min BUZZ flights and discounted trial lessons running all day. A huge thankyou to our fantastic ground crew Leah Taverner and Joe Hamlin (Both phoenix trainee pilots) for their efforts loading and unloading the aircraft all day, and again massive thanks to Cpt. Sam Richard for putting in such a long day of flying with the usual bubbly service right down to the wire.  

Among lots of visiting aircraft a helicopter form the Army Historic Flight got allot of interest from our pilots and instructors, a vintage Bell 47. Seb Powderham (a blackbushe flight instructor) is pictured below making himself at home in the cockpit of the iconic aircraft.

Phoenix Executive Transport also put on a display, with the E-CLASS mercedes on show outside the offices, staff were available to explain what "exec transport" have to offer not only with our chartered helicopters but chauffeur cars and Jets. 

A huge thanks to all the Phoenix, Blackbsuhe Airport and Aerobility Staff for making the day such a resounding sucess a great day was had by all!

Easy to find with excellent parking. All staff, including Toby, our pilot, were very approachable and happy to chat. Great atmosphere. A thoroughly enjoyable experience all round.

Phoenix for me is now more than just a school to learn how to fly, it has a very homely feel to it, where students and the staff have become a family.

Thank you all at Phoenix, SO much! I think it's finally sinking in for Matt exactly what went on yesterday. His maiden chopper flight was wonderful and he had a great day. Such a smooth flight. Really can't thank you enough for making the day so special

A very enjoyable flight. A birthday present for myself and friend and trial first flight. Hoping to do the flight down The Thames next year for our 40th and 60th birthdays!

I really enjoyed my training with Phoenix Helicopters (even with the stresses of a tight budget and timescale!), and having now passed my PPL I will definitely be continuing my training and self-fly hire there.

We would like to say a huge thank you for all your help and service on our big day. It was an amazing day and your contribution helped our wedding be the day we wished for and a success. We appreciate all your efforts on the day. Lots of Love Vanessa & Ravi

We both had a fantastic flight and thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was a lovely clear day which helped make the views over West Sussex stunning. 
Having a flight in a helicopter is something I have wanted to do for years, it was great to enjoy such an experience.

Phoenix Helicopter Academy at Goodwood is a great place to learn to fly. Relaxed, yet totally professional. The instructors go out of their way to ensure you get the best training. Highly recommended!
