FILMING & PHOTOGRAPHY

Do you require that stunning panoramic video or a unique aerial picture for an advertising campaign?

We can provide the perfect platform for capturing that incredible shot.

Our skilled pilots understand the principles of obtaining the best results for aerial photography and video filming by positioning the helicopter at the right location, angle and altitude to capture the best results.

We work collaboratively with you, taking the time with each client to understand the kind of aerial photography that is desired, and then discuss the best routes and time of departure to capture the mood of the photographer’s vision.

FLIGHT PLANNING

We will work with you to understand your vision. Please get in touch to discuss your aerial photography. On the day of your flight, we allocate time on the ground to go over the proposed flight before take-off (in case of last-minute changes)

HOVER OPERATIONS

Depending on aircraft weight and environmental conditions such as weather and altitude, our pilots can bring the aircraft into a full stop hover to offer a still platform.
