** Flying Training is suspended as from 23 October 2016 until a new Head of Operations is appointed **
If you want learn to fly for a career or for hobby or recreational purposes, Phoenix Flying School (incorporating Liverpool Flying School) can cater for your needs.
People from all walks of life have learnt to fly with us. Teenagers, students, professionals, mums, dads and retirees have successfully qualified for their Recreational Pilot Licence, Private Pilot Licence or Commercial Pilot Licence.
Flying is more than a new interest. Flying is a new way of life – it will broaden your horizons and add a completely new dimension to your life.
You always remember the unbelievable experience of YOUR first solo flight!
We can offer something special to anyone interested in aircraft and aviation. For example, you may have started your flight training elsewhere and would like to finish it with us; or you may already have your Recreational or Private Pilot licence and would like to get endorsed on one of our aircraft; or you may be looking at enhancing or improving your skills with a Night Flying Rating, Commercial Pilot Licence or training as a Flying Instructor. No matter what your objectives are, we can tailor your flight training to suit your needs.
We are a small, select team of very experienced professionals focussed on helping you become a safe and competent pilot.
The thrill of your first solo flight may be just hours away!!

Camden Airport Time:
PLEASE NOTE: LAST LIGHT MEANING ‘Night’ is that period between the end of the evening civil twilight and the beginning of the morning civil twilight. For all intents and purposes, first light should be construed as the beginning of civil twilight and last light as the end of civil twilight. The terms ‘sunrise’ and ‘sunset’ have no relevance when calculating day light operating times for the VFR pilot.
NAIPS automatically computes first light and last light. This information can be provided through pilot access, as part of a telephone briefing, or from Flightwatch (AIP GEN 2.7)
Unless the pilot in command holds a command instrument rating or night VFR (NGT VFR) rating and the aircraft is appropriately equipped for flight at night, a VFR flight must not depart from an aerodrome:
- • before first light or after last light (See Visual Flight Guide) and
- • unless the ETA for the destination (or alternate) is at least 10 minutes before last light after allowing for any required holding.
