Spirit in the Sky supply end to end aerial filming solutions for feature films and TV.  We are able to advise, and have access to a very wide range of picture aircraft spanning nearly 100 yrs of aviation. In addition we have a range of camera helicopter solutions that include the AS350 B3 and the AS355NP for work over built up areas. These aircraft can be operated AOC or Part SPO depending on the task. We have certification for Human External Cargo operations as well as Long Line. Our equipment is in house reducing our risk exposure to 3rd party suppliers.

In addition to supplying airworthy aircraft we can provide a wide range of static aircraft props for film and photographic shoots. We will consult with our client to ensure that the aircraft we use help to communicate any brand message to be put across in the shoot.
