29-06-2020 - Covid-19 - UPDATE

The CAA has now given permission for flight schools and clubs to open from 4 July 2020. 

Phoenix will start reopening early July, but the requirements for social distancing, cleansing/sanitising and PPE mean that we'll need to do this in a careful, controlled and phased manner.

At the moment we anticipate that we we'll be able to start booking trial lessons in again from late August, maybe sooner.  We stopped the clock on any trial lesson vouchers valid when we closed in March and will not restart the clock until we are able to book them back in again, so no voucher holders will lose out.

Sales of Trial Lesson vouchers - To give us some space in which to fly the trial lessons already sold, we have decided to temporarily stop the sale of trial lesson vouchers.  We will reopen our Web shop in November, on the run up to Christmas.

This information will be updated as soon as we have a better picture of how operations work in this new landscape and we can give you a firm date for making your booking.

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.  Thank You.


Welcome to Phoenix Aviation, now in its 11th year of operation from Solent Airport Daedalus! 

Run by flying enthusiasts for flying enthusiasts, the Club offers affordable flying tuition, aircraft hire and trial lessons in a friendly and professional environment.

If you have received a trial lesson voucher, then please click on our Trial Lesson link to find out more about arranging your flight.

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.

lee-on-solent-aircraftWe operate the very popular and reliable Piper PA28 and C42 aircraft. At just £145 per hour wet for one of our four very well equipped Warrior IIs and £163 for the Archer III, our solo hire rates are extremely hard to beat.

Phoenix Aviation is a CAA Declared Training Organisation (DTO) and can offer flying tuition, groundschool and ground exams for the Private Pilots Licence (PPL), Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) and National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) with Microlight rating at equally modest rates.

We also provide advanced training for the IR(R) and, once runway lighting has been reinstalled, for the Night Rating.


If you would rather fly Microlights, then why not learn in one of our superb Ikarus C42s at £127 ph, or solo hire at £90 ph.

Trial Lessons start at just £95 in the C42, and £135 in a PA28.


Solent Airport, a licensed airfield, is fast becoming the place to fly from on the South Coast, with an ever-growing fleet of home-based aircraft.
