Aerial Photography

aerial photography 1With over twenty years experience world-wide, Helicopter Services specialise in bespoke aerial photography and filming from the air.

The locations we have filmed in before have been extremely varied, from mountainous regions to deserts and oceans.

aerial photography 2Our camera operatives will select from a range of systems including Tyler, Wescam, BSS and Gyron either video or 35 mm. If none of these are suitable for your needs, we may be able to accommodate your filming rig. For aerial photography and filming, we will provide an additional harness if a door is required to be open. This will ensure your continuous safety throughout the operation.

Location dependent, we can offer a choice between single engine helicopters or twin engine helicopters. Over built up areas, the Civil Aviation Authority legislate that a twin engine helicopter must be used at specified minimum heights for aerial photography or filming. We can advise on your chosen location as to helicopter type and therefore the estimated cost.

Aerial Photography and Filming from Helicopter Services

Our pilots, with thousands of hours flying under them, are used to working to exacting standards within the industry. You will be in constant communication with your pilot to allow positioning for the exact angle and lighting that you require.

Helicopter Services mainly operate out of White Waltham Aerodrome and Elstree Aerodrome. Both aerodromes are located just outside of the London control zone, providing access to central London with very short transit times. However, we can position anywhere in the country if required. We also work alongside other operators providing aerial photography and filming services.

Our credits include many promotional videos for blue-chip companies, feature films for BBC, ITV, Sky, Channel 4, news gathering and stills photography for national newspapers.
