PA28-161 Warrior G-BFBR is coming to Phoenix Aviation to help supply the demand from local people (yay!) for PA28 aircraft hire and PPL flying lessons via nearby Bembridge airfield.

Phoenix Aviation is delighted to announce the arrival of the latest addition to its fleet of aircraft - G-BFBR. The Piper Warrior II (pictured) is a well equipped aircraft with very modern avionics (GNS430 GPS, Garmin Mode-S Transponder etc.), allowing its operation in almost any airspace within the UK and Europe.

G-BFBR

G-BFBR nicely complements the Phoenix Club's existing Warrior II and Archer III aircraft which are used for both PPL hire and flying training.

First flight of 'new build' Auster G-CDPG which Paul Groves of "P" hangar has built from Auster components and other things -  such as a Lycoming engine. Test flying for the LAA Permit for his 'bitsa' Auster is complete. Very nice result for a spare-time project over twenty years!
