Phoenix Helicopter to open third UK branch at Solent Airport

An exciting new prospect for Phoenix Helicopters as they open their new branch at Lee-on-Solent (Daedalus) Airfield.

Phoenix Helicopter Academy have been established since 2009 and has grown to become an outstanding company offering training, charter and pleasure flights.
Starting with a single branch at Goodwood Aerodrome with only one aircraft and two employees, Phoenix has now expanded to cover the beautiful areas of West Sussex and Surrey. With branches at Goodwood Aerodrome and Blackbushe Airport, Phoenix have a vast fleet of training and charter aircraft including Robinson R22’s, R44’s and a Cabri G2 with the hope to expanding the fleet in the near future.
From Phoenix’s modest beginnings founded by managing director Paul Andrews, they now offer a comprehensive training package for those wanting to gain anything from their PPL(H) all the way through to CPL(H), as well as offering a diverse range of Pleasure Flights from both branches and Charter options.
Keeping their main principle as fantastic customer service, Phoenix have students and customers alike returning for new experience’s every day and are proud to offer the highest standards of flights and training from instructors and pilots who are passionate about their job.
Now it’s time for Phoenix to expand their horizons once again and are excited to announce the opening of their third UK branch at Lee-on-Solent Airfield. With this opportunity to bring the world of helicopters to a new area, Phoenix are eager to get to the skies with many more helicopter enthusiasts whether it be a one-off experience or a new career.
Plans to develop operations at Solent Airport were initiated by the team when they noticed a demand for helicopter training and charter in Portsmouth. Steeped in History, Solent airport provides breath-taking views of the Isle of Wight and the airport. Solent is also the largest employment zone in the area and is set to become the premier location for aviation.
As re-development of the airfield and local area continues, Phoenix Helicopters are excited to be a part of the proceedings especially at this most prominent time when the airfield is celebrating its 100th year.

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!

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.

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.

Sean Larsen (Student)

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)

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.

Stuart Russell (Student)

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)

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!
