World Leaders in Aerial Filming

About Us

Flying Pictures are regarded as the world leaders in all forms of aerial film and television production, whether it is action in the air or aerial filming from helicopters, planes and drones.

We are proud to be the only UK company legally permitted to fly our cinema ready heavy lift drones in "congested areas" with as little as 10m separation from the public and up to 600ft day and night.

The company has a full Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority and holds an unequalled range of approved aircraft mounts including Eclipse, Shotover and Cineflex. Our world renowned team of experienced and skilled pilots, aerial cameramen, engineers and technicians are also trained in-house to the highest safety standards.

With over 450 film credits spanning the company’s 35 year history, including thirteen James Bond films, the entire Harry Potter series, as well as the recent Star Wars episodes and many Ridley Scott features, Flying Pictures has a unique experience and safety record in achieving the finest aerial images.

We are also proud patrons of the British Society of Cinematographers.
