Mat Reid passes PPL (H) - October 2015

Congratulations to Phoenix Apprentice Mat Reid for passing his Private Pilot's Licence skills test! Mat has been training at our Blackbushe branch 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, Mat can now share his passion for flying, taking friends and family up with him. The Private Pilots Licence enables Mat 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 Mat, and good luck with your future flying!
