Stop Press: The weather in the UK since Christmas has been very poor, and particularly so for flying light aircraft. Even sunny days that may look fine for flying have been accompanied by strong crosswinds, making them unflyable for us. We always try our best to fly all booked lessons, but will not fly unless the weather is suitable for the lesson AND we are satisfied that it will be an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, we can do nothing about the weather - we are completely at its mercy. Sometimes we can slightly delay a flight on the day in question to allow for the weather to improve e.g. a mist to disperse, but this depends on what other bookings there are. At least we should be grateful that we have a tarmac runway at Lee, as many airfields with grass runways have been completely closed for periods due to waterlogging. Please bear with us - the weather will improve !
We are now located in the Control Tower at Solent Airfield Daedalus at Lee-on-the-Solent, improving our facilities and providing superb views across the airfield.
Run by flying enthusiasts for flying enthusiasts, the Club offers affordable flying tuition, aircraft hire and trial lessons in a friendly and professional environment.
We operate the very popular and reliable Piper PA28 and C42 aircraft. At just £130 per hour wet for one of our four very well equipped Warrior IIs and £148 for the Archer III, our solo hire rates are extremely hard to beat.
Phoenix Aviation is a CAA Registered Training Facility and can offer flying tuition, groundschool and ground exams for the Private Pilots Licence (PPL), Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL), National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) and Microlight rating at equally modest rates.
We also provide advanced training, such as the IMC rating and Night Qualification, and for those of you moving to glass cockpits, G1000 training.
If you would rather fly Microlights, then why not learn in one of our superb Ikarus C42s at £115 ph, or solo hire at £75 ph.
Trial Lessons start at just £85 in the C42, and £125 in a PA28.
Lee-on-Solent Airfield, a licensed airfield, is fast becoming the place to fly from on the South Coast, with an ever-growing fleet of home-based aircraft.
