Ivan Snell passes PPL (H) – April 2015

Congratulations to Ivan Snell for completing the Private Pilot’s Licence with Phoenix Helicopters. Ivan can now share his passion for flying by hiring the aircraft for his personal use, taking up friends and family.




Ivan Snell began training, towards his Private Pilot’s Licence, with Phoenix last year at the beautiful Goodwood Aerodrome. The private pilot’s licence course (PPL) requires students to conduct nine theoretical exams and a minimum of 45 hours flight training of which 10 hours are completed as supervised solo! With the PPL course now completed Ivan is officially a Private Helicopter Pilot. The PPL Licence will enable Ivan to hire a helicopter anywhere in Europe for his personal use. Well done Ivan!
