Helicopter flying lessons and charter just got interesting!

Welcome to Phoenix Helicopter Academy, the souths favourite Helicopter Training School and Charter Operator.
Located at the Goodwood Aerodrome, Sussex and Blackbushe Airfield, Surrey, Phoenix Helicopters was established in 2009 and has quickly grown to become one of the Uk’s most trusted Helicopter providers.

The company is owned and run by instructors and pilots who are passionate about their jobs and will go out of their way to fulfill your needs and make your helicopter flying lessons, charter or pleasure flights the un-rushed, enjoyable and rewarding experience they should be.
So whether you are learning to fly for pleasure and gaining your Private Pilots Licence (PPL H) or the start of a new career to become a Commercial Helicopter Pilot (CPL H), need a helicopter for that special event such as your wedding or wanting to attend a major sporting event, or simply that one off experience of a trial lesson or pleasure flight, we are here to help.


Helicopter Training

With Phoenix you will notice a different approach to helicopter training; based more on the individual needs of the students with completely flexible courses and pricing plans where you chose when you want to fly and how often.

Our instructors are all very experienced and with our structured training programmes the results are a constantly low hour first time pass rate.

We have the capability to offer private pilot’s licenses as well as commercial pilots licenses to those aspiring for a career change.We are proud to offer the highest standards of training tailored to your individual requirements with friendly, highly qualified staff, which are passionate about helicopters.



Helicopter Charter

Phoenix provides Helicopter Charter and Private Helicopter Hire flights. Whether business or pleasure Helicopters are the most time-efficient and memorable way to travel.

At Phoenix we operate under our own AOC (Air Operators Certificate) so you can be assured that your charter flight is both legal, insured and performed by professionals.
We can cater for all your Helicopter Charter needs from bespoke charter for business, that special occasion including Helicopter Wedding Flights or Aerial Photography.

With Branches located at both Goodwood and Blackbushe we are ideally located for helicopter charter from London, Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Sussex.

We have access to a large fleet from R44s catering for parties of 3 or less to larger machine catering for up to 12. Every Charter is dealt with on an individual basis and our customer service is second to none.



Sporting Events

As well as business and social events, we also provide helicopter charter and helicopter shuttles for the majority of the major sporting and social events throughout the year.

You can arrive in style and avoid the traffic. We cover most events where helicopters are permitted including Silverstone F1 Grand Prix, The Open Golf, Festival of Speed, Glorious Goodwood and Goodwood Revival to name but a few.

For many of the larger events we operate a shuttle service with prices starting from just £299.



Pleasure Flights

At Phoenix we offer a variety of Helicopter Pleasure Flights from both our Goodwood and Blackbushe sites. From Goodwood we offer Helicopter trips to Portsmouth, London, Brighton and the Isle of Wight, and from Blackbushe we offer trips around Surrey and the London Helicopter lanes with tours starting from just £89.00 

We even have a unique set of Helicopter pleasure flights that include hotel stops for lunch. Pleasure flights start from just £45.00 per seat.



Trial Lessons

For those feeling a little more ambitious why not take the controls in a Helicopter Trial Lesson starting from just £140.

These are as a 15, 30 or 60 minute flight and can be used entirely at your discretion.

These helicopter lessons do count towards further training and are done on a one to one with an instructor so may be more suitable for an individual gift.

Our Blackbushe Branch


Based in Surrey our Blackbushe Branch is ideal for London or Hampshire. From Blackbushe we are offering all our services from helicopter training, pleasure flights around London and a full charter service.
