24-03-2020 - Covid-19 - Temporary Closure

As a consequence of last night's instructions from the Government, we have brought forward the temporary closure of Phoenix Aviation by a day.  All flying has ceased and we will not be booking dates for further trial lessons until later in the year - voucher validity dates will be increased accordingly so that voucher holders will not lose out.

The online shop will remain open should anyone wish to purchase a voucher as a gift.

We'll be contacting everyone who has a trial lesson already booked with us but we won't be able to reschedule these until the situation is resolved.

We'll update this Web page from time-to-time as advice changes and we get towards the removal of restrictions.

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 £135 per hour wet for one of our four very well equipped Warrior IIs and £153 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), National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) and 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 £118 ph, or solo hire at £80 ph.

Trial Lessons start at just £95 in the C42, and £130 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.
