Our Services

Based in the UK and operating worldwide, we have been at forefront of aerial filming from helicopters, planes and more recently drones, for nearly 40 years. We pride ourselves at providing the most experienced camera crews, skilled pilots and ground support crews along with the best action and camera aircraft available.

Our aerial units have traveled to the remotest parts of the world and on every size project. We are flexible enough to cater for the smallest of productions right up to the largest and most complex of Hollywood blockbuster, as can be seen from our credits.

We are licensed by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority and hold an Air Operators Certificate enabling us a greater degree of flexibility when conducting aerial filming. This gives us a considerable advantage over our competitors, as we get permissions that others simply cannot obtain.


We provide skilled, incredibly experienced and award-winning crew: aircraft & drone pilots, DoPs, technicians and safety personnel. You’ll be in very safe hands.

Often we’ll have access to preferential rates, but in any event we negotiate the best deals to keep client costs down.
