Flying Pictures: The Helicopter and Drone Aerial Filming Specialists

Aircraft & Equipment

We have been at forefront of aerial filming from helicopters, planes and more recently drones, for nearly 40 years. We provide the most experienced camera crews, skilled pilots and ground support crews along with the best action and camera aircraft available.

Our aerial units have worked all over the world, including some of the most extreme & remotest places, 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 blockbusters, as can be seen from our credits.

Flying Pictures have long standing relationships with helicopter companies in the UK and worldwide; we can ensure that the most appropriate aircraft is sourced as locally to the shoot as possible.

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