Opening Summer 2017 at Solent Airport (formally known as HMS Daedalus Airfield) this will become Phoenix’s Premier Branch. With great expansion options at the airfield and so close to Portsmouth and Southampton Airport, it is ideally located to cover the whole of Hampshire for local training. 

Our offices will initially be located in the Fareham Innovation Center while our further expansion plans are developed at the airfield. The Innovation Center forms part of the regeneration project at Lee on Solent.
We shall be doing all our standard training here from PPL(H), CPL(H) and Type ratings and will also be running Helicopter Charter Operations and Helicopter Pleasure Flights around the Solent and Portsmouth area.
Getting to Solent Airfield is relatively easy from both Portsmouth, Southampton and further afield with easy access to the M27.
The airfield is going through major regeneration over the next few years with innovative businesses being attracted to the area.  The area forms perfect flying conditions with views over the Solent to the Isle of Wight and with our standard training area in the New Forest you simply cannot find a more exciting area to fly in.

The Innovation Center

As part of Solent airport’s ambitious program, Solent Enterprise Zone Fareham Innovation Centre brings growing companies together to boost the local economy with planned £5.3 million state-of-the-art facilities forming part of the much larger regional regeneration.


Further Growth at the Airport.

Solent is planning major expansion over the next few years and the option for growth and expansion for us is amazing. The first phase of the hanger should be ready early 2018 with further plans for additional phases later.

We would like to say a huge thank you for all your help and service on our big day. It was an amazing day and your contribution helped our wedding be the day we wished for and a success. We appreciate all your efforts on the day. Lots of Love Vanessa & Ravi  

Vanessa & Ravi (Wedding Charter)

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)

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)

Just a short note to express our thanks to all at Phoenix Blackbush,for a truly enjoyable experience.Our special thanks go to Simon Halfpenny not only for his cheerful sense of humour but also for his skill as a pilot,over the last 25 years I have flown with many pilots most being military or EX.& I can say that Simon ranks amongst the best that I have had the pleasure to fly with.

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.

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.

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!

Kevin Piotrowicz (Student)

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)

Thank you for a fantastic experience. It was very well organised and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

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!
