Our Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) include congested areas and night flying and our Pilots are fully qualified. Insurance is £10 million.
I hired team APC on several productions, including some very challenging shoots.
The team are extremely professional and a great asset to any shoot, but most of all the
footage always exceeds expectations, and works so well in the edit - which is why I've
used them time and time again.

Aerial Picture Company were instrumental not just in meticulous planning of our ambitious
shot, but also had valuable suggestions how to improve it creatively.
An all-around great experience, we will be back!
Director of Photography
What is brilliant about the drone footage the Aerial Picture Company captures is that they
think like directors. Filming sequences which will cut into the rest of your shots. The team
enjoy being collaborative and working out how the drone footage can add to your story.
This really paid dividends and having drone shots that cut into pieces to camera
really worked well on screen. And on top of all that he's self-sufficient and reliable!
Team APC have provided aerial filming for me on a number of drama shoots
and have always produced excellent footage that has fitted the brief as discussed.
They are knowledgeable with regards to their equipment, regulations, and ways to
achievedifficult sequences. I wouldn't hesitate to engage them on any show I require
drone footage on.
