Phoenix Aviation is a CAA Declared Training Organisation (DTO), located in the Control Tower at Solent Airport Daedalus, Lee-on-the-Solent.  Our excellent facilities on the first and second floors command superb views across the airfield.

We operate the very popular and reliable Piper PA28 and Ikarus C42 aircraft. At just £195 per hour 'wet' for one of our four, very well equipped Warrior IIs and £210 for the Archer III, our solo hire rates are extremely hard to beat.

As a DTO we provide 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 for the IR(R) and Night Rating.

Microlights are extremely versatile, with lower training and ongoing costs.  You can learn to fly in one of our superb Ikarus C42s at £145 ph, or rent for solo hire at £108 ph.

As a taster for what it's like to fly a light aircraft, our Trial Lessons start at just £107 in the C42 and £157 in the 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.

We have joined forces with carbon offsetting, not-for-profit business My Carbon Plan, to offset the total carbon footprint of Phoenix Aviation.  All our flights, including trial lessons, are therefore carbon neutral.
