Bliss Aviation – PPL Successes, Stunning Aerial Shots and Recent Reviews


PPL passes and achievements

Congratulations to our very own Operations Assistant Lee Rowley (top left) for successfully passing his PPL Skills Test. Lee joined the Bliss team in January and started his PPL training August 2013. The Skills Test examines your navigation and general handling abilities and can be undertaken once the training is complete and all theoretical exams passed.

Congratulations also to Mark Whitley (top right) who recently completed his solo qualifying cross country flight. 100 nautical miles and landing at two other airports, all part of the PPL course.

Aerial shots

With thanks to one of our Trip Advisor reviewers for posting these great aerial shots.

“It was a privilege to go up and look down at our amazing coast line from Mudeford to Sandbanks, past Studland to Swanage, over Corfe Castle and Poole.”

A quick lunch break to the Isle of Wight

Sometimes it’s nice to nip out for a spot of lunch, and with so many places a short fly away we’re spoilt for choice. The Fighting Cocks on the Isle of Wight is one of our favourites though… the helipad is also rather helpful!

Taking off from the Fighting Cocks

“Steve, our pilot on the day, you are THE MAN! You will forever be in my heart, I shall be eternally grateful for your nerves of steel and for putting us down safely. All in all, it was in fact a exhilarating experience that I shall never forget.”

“What a fantastic experience. Charles was a very professional instructor explained everything very well. The instructor made me feel at ease once I took the controls. Had a thoroughly enjoyable first flying lesson.”
