We can, and indeed have, sourced and worked with most aircraft types; from World War 1 fighters at the very dawn of aviation to the latest modern airliners. Private, civilian or military we’ve very likely been there before.

We can help you select an aircraft that’s correct for both period and role and if necessary paint it to your taste in our washable paint. If required we can match the exterior to one of our interior stage sets, making a slick and seamless transition from your exterior to interior shots.

To compliment the choice of aircraft we’ll source pilots and crew with the correct licenses and experience, keeping the Production both legal and safe whilst providing the most amazing aerial content.

Below are some examples of aircraft we’ve managed before. It’s far from an exhaustive list of all we’ve done but rather just some landmark “types” to help get the thought process going! Click on each to see some behind the scenes of when we’re shot them before.

If you’d like to have even the most informal chat about what you might need then we’re super enthusiastic. Just pick up the phone, we’d love to hear from you!

As the saying goes; you never truly appreciate how big something is until you’ve had to paint it. 2 days to do it. 200 film crew waiting. Gulp.. #ukfilm #filmproduction #avgeek #avgeeks #c130 #California https://t.co/lH6siKgzWo
