Richard Gay Passes PPL (H) August 2016

Congratulations to Richard Gay for completing the helicopter private pilot’s licence. Richard has been training towards the PPL licence at the Blackbushe branch. Well done Rich, keep up the great flying!


Richard has been flying with Phoenix at our branch at Blackbushe Airport, completing the PPL course at his leisure. Making the most of the glorious sunshine, he passed his PPL skills test today with company Flight Examiner Paul Andrews. The standard PPL course includes at least 45 hours flight training and nine theoretical examinations. With the licence now complete, Richard can share his passion for flying, taking friends and family flying. The European PPL allows him to hire and fly a helicopter anywhere in Europe!
