Welcome to the Shoot Aviation office and Ops room! We’re based at White Waltham, an original WW2 airfield in the beautiful Berkshire countryside, just 25 miles from London and a 20 minute drive from LHR.
At 420 acres White Waltham is the largest grass airfield in Europe. During wartime it was the home of the ATA where the famous women pilots would deliver aircraft from the factories to their new squadrons. Our office and hangars are all real wartime buildings. After the war Prince Philip kept an aircraft in our hangar and used our office to get changed, very neatly replicated by The Crown in Series 1!
Smaller Productions use the office for Green Room / Changing / Make Up / Loos and Kitchen while the bigger Productions appreciate the expanse of tarmac outside our door for their Unit Base. Having said that several big names have chosen to abadoned their trailers in exchange for a cuppa in our comfy armchairs beside a real log fire!
So if you’re prepping for the next big block buster, a modest bit of TV, or you just fancy talking aviation waffle then please pop over, the kettle is always on. We look forward to welcoming you.
Shoot Aviation are in the Ops Room at White Waltham Aerodrome, just 25 miles west of London, UK

New fleet addition! A rather spectacular 1970’s HS125 exec jet cockpit. On a trailer for easy transport, cockpit windows float for camera as do rear sections. Call for details! #ukfilm #hs125 #aircraftfilming #avgeek #avgeeks https://t.co/ZB8rl8SaBW4th December 2018

Had a weekend test fitting for the Bf108. We’re going to steal an idea from a German example. Original instruments but with a modern stack of EFIS and radios hidden in the glove boxes. Found an original set of Messerschmitt lap straps for refurb! #avgeek #avgeeks #bf108 #me108 https://t.co/6cFqNnbmf719th November 2018

Filming on/in/around Airliners. The most common request we receive is that of a production wishing to film inside an airliner. Be that…
Shoot aviation are a great team. They really get what I want – without over complicating or charging outrageous money…
They can get me any aircraft, mockup or set that I need – no matter how rediculous the request…
