Why Choose FlyingTV
We are a company dedicated to aerial creativity, from unique stills to high end cinematography:
Our Denham airbase saw reconnaissance photographers trained in 1915, a tradition we renewed in 2003. A service founded by Mike Smith, from the rare position of being an established TV presenter and helicopter pilot. Mike and those who joined him understood how aerial filming could be taken to another level with the latest technology, an ethos which still drives.
Flying TV's continued investment in new cameras, aircraft and technology leads the industry. More importantly, this helps our clients be at the forefront of their field and produce incredible imagery. Clarity of picture, flexibility and cost control spring from aerial filming using state of the art equipment. We will always continue to update, as you can see in our advanced, well maintained fleet.
We can be anywhere in England within two hours, or in Europe. London is still a popular and exciting place for aerial filming, yet may represent the most complex airspace in the world. Flying TV are here to make your task simple, through experience and efficient planning. We are qualified to shoot in London and are able to offer access at 20 minutes notice.
3 Helicopters 2 Drones 8K Cameras
Flying TV are unique in the UK, offering purpose built, Robinson R44 aerial filming helicopters. 21st Century machines, working alongside our manouverable, low flying Airbus AS355s. A great combination for safety, reliability and every shooting option imaginable.
Whilst helicopters remain the aircraft of choice for most tasks, drones have the ability to pull the viewer in with intimate, close range/wide angle shots. We offer smaller, compact DJI drones that can even travel with us in the helicopter for dual platform projects - and larger Freefly Alta 8 drones for high end cinema work. All from a company with experience.
The best helicopters, pilots and operators can make a shoot but ultimately its the camera's output that the viewer sees. Our GSS and Cineflex camera systems represent the best in aerial filming technology - rock solid video and stills at up to 8K.
