Aerial Filming Helicopters in London, UK, Europe from FlyingTV

HD gyro-stabilised aerial filming

A simple phone call or email is all it takes to get your complete aerial shoot organised. With our highly-experienced crews and 21st century HD filming helicopters, you'll be surprised at how efficient aerial filming can be. FlyingTV was started by broadcaster Mike Smith in 2003. Since then, we've flown over 4000hrs on airborne filming tasks for every UK broadcaster.

Our 2 lead helicopters carry identical Cineflex Ikegami F30 gyrostab systems recording tapeless, full broadcast spec HD AVC Intra 100.

We also supply a 3rd identical system for "flyaway" use on other helicopters and vehicles. This system can also be fitted to our available AS355 twin-engine helicopter when required. And we organise VIP helicopter transport for production teams, photographers and other media clients.

Everything we do is based in our custom-built 8000 sq ft hangar and offices. Under one roof we offer complete media flying services.
