James Rowland passes PPL (H) – November 2015

Congratulations to Phoenix Apprentice James Rowland for passing his Private Pilot's Licence skills test! James has been training at our Goodwood branch, flying once per week, under our apprenticeship scheme.




The standard PPL course includes at least 45 hours flight training, as well as 9 written examinations. With the licence now complete, James can now share his passion for flying, taking friends and family up with him. The Private Pilot’s Licence enables James to hire and captain a helicopter anywhere in Europe. He will now continue to fly with Phoenix, building up his hours until he can start his Commercial Pilot's course! Well done James, good luck with your future flying!
