Bliss Aviation, based at Bournemouth Airport, is the South of England’s premier flying school, providing trial lessons and quality flight training to Private Pilot Licence (PPL) level. Whether you wish to fly for pleasure or become a fully qualified commercial pilot, we are your first step.
Bliss Aviation is located at Bournemouth Airport in Aviation Park West, with it’s sister company Bournemouth Handling. We provide a unique flight training environment with exceptional facilities that include one to one classrooms, a student study and planning lounge, customs and handling, and a coffee shop. Uniquely, we are the only training school with a refueling vehicle, so there are no delays when you fly with us.
Being located at Bournemouth Airport means that you will be training in Class D airspace, where busy scheduled traffic operates throughout the day. This allows you to receive a high level of training and gain confidence in airspace where commercial aircraft operate. You would be unlikely to receive this invaluable experience at a small non-commercial airfield.
The Chief Flying Instructor, Graham Smith, manages a team of three established instructors, providing a consistent, high quality training programme.
Our office operates 7 days a week 0900-1730. The times of flight training and aircraft hire will fit according to student requirements, often extending beyond office hours.
If you want to learn to fly, come and have a chat to discuss the course and take a look at our facilities. You might even book your first trial lesson. Alternatively, if you would like to receive an Information Pack detailing more about the PPL and the courses we have on offer, please contact us
