Christmas Party 2015!

Every year, during the festive season, Phoenix relish the excuse to have a big party with all our staff and students. This year’s annual Christmas party saw the festivities return to the Devils Punchbowl Hotel in Hindhead for another cracking night.

The event started with a complimentary champagne reception followed by a delicious three course meal. The usual festive party hats, Christmas crackers and party poppers where enjoyed by all before the presentation began.

Company boss’s Paul Andrews and Kevin Rowley took to the stage for the annual presentation which celebrates all student PPL, CPL and Type Rating successes. After half a trucks worth of champagne and beer was handed out to students, John and Philly took to the stage for a cracking duet performance. John and Philly gripped the audience with an incredible live piano duet which was exceptionally entertaining.

Just when you were thinking it can’t get any better… Goodwood Operations Manager James Rowland took to the stage and invited on Father Christmas after a tear jerking speech. Rumours have it that Flight Instructor Max Tebbitt and Father Christmas have never been seen in the same room together but we don’t like to speculate.

James & Santa finished the presentation with the introduction of the Unsung Hero award amongst the staff. This year Financial Director Kevin Rowley took the award for his hard work. Santa then ordered the DJ to start spinning the decks getting the party started before he proceeded to do what he does best and give everyone a novelty gift from his sack.

All of the Phoenix staff had a great night and we hope all you guys did too. We would like to thank everyone who came to the event and of course all the staff at the hotel for being so accommodating to our rowdy helicopter lot!

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

Aimee and Matt (Charter)

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.

Kim and David Edwards (Pleasure Flight)

Just a short note to express our thanks to all at Phoenix Blackbush,for a truly enjoyable experience.Our special thanks go to Simon Halfpenny not only for his cheerful sense of humour but also for his skill as a pilot,over the last 25 years I have flown with many pilots most being military or EX.& I can say that Simon ranks amongst the best that I have had the pleasure to fly with.

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.

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!

Kevin Piotrowicz (Student)

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.

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!

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.
