About Aerial - The Helicopter Girls

Founded in 2011, The Helicopter Girls is a leading provider of drone aerial film services in Europe. 2018/19 credits include Disney’s Artemis Fowl and Maleficent 2; 1917, Downton Abbey the movie, Hobbs and Shaw (Universal Studios), Homeland Season 8 (HBO) and Jack Ryan Seasons 1 and 2 for Amazon/Paramount Pictures.

We work with a stable of talented pilots, and at our core is a creative team of Aerial DoPs and Operators, who have established themselves in the industry over 20 years.

We operate a fleet of Freefly ALTA 8 aircraft, including full back-up aircraft, which carry the Alexa Mini/RED cameras with prime lenses, including Hawk V-lite anamorphics and 35mm Master Prime with full lens control. In April 2019 we were the first crew to fly the Alexa Mini LF with Signature Prime (1917). For heavier payloads we are introducing a system which can carry the Sony Venice with external RAW recorder and heavier lenses with full lens control. For high speed/high risk work or environments, where flying space is tight, we operate the Inspire 2 aircraft with X7 S35 camera and proprietary DJI/Hasselblad primes. In addition, this system is great for photogrammetry work, where we can remotely set flight path, camera angle, image overlap and flight speed.

We hold international permissions in Morocco (where we also base an aircraft and batteries), Norway, Colombia and Spain. Our crew are well travelled with a wealth of experience working in other territories, including Greenland, both Poles, eastern and western Europe and challenging environments, such as jungle, desert, ice, open water, flying from boats and at high altitude. We also specialise in operating in urban environments, and are one of a handful of UK-drone operators permitted to operate in sensitive locations in Central London.

As of 2019 we are the only drone operator with a heavy-lift aircraft and batteries based in Morocco, thereby able to fly the Red or Alexa Mini in this popular film territory without import delays and red tape.
