Where better to spend your flying time than at Bliss Aviation? Bliss Aviation is the flying club associated with Bliss Aviation - Aeroplanes and Bliss Aviation - Helicopters. Bournemouth Handling, the general aviation handling agents for the airport is also located here along with many private aircraft owners, making Bliss Aviation a great mix of pilots and enthusiasts from all walks of life.
We pride ourselves on our friendly, relaxed atmosphere and the focal point for Bliss Aviation is the crew lounge – the perfect place to relax after a flight or to meet up with others. With comfy sofas, a coffee machine, snacks and wireless internet access it’s a great place for a coffee and sandwich.
For the flyer, we have a self briefing area with access to weather and flight planning information, a computer link to the control tower and also flight planning areas. Our operations staff are there to help with flight plans, customs forms, ATC liaison and general flight planning guidance. Another big benefit is the fuel bowser located on our apron. Having immediate access to refueling is a facility that is unique to us at Bournemouth Airport – no more waiting!
Annual events include our legendary summer barbecue and Christmas parties, always well attended by people from all areas of the airport. Recent club trips have included the Met Office in Exeter and National Air Traffic Services at Swanwick – more are in the pipeline this year!
