PROFESSIONAL UAS / DRONE SERVICES
Helivision has been an industry leader in aerial filming services for over 20 years. We have worked with some of the biggest names in the business to deliver stunning aerial cinematography from helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. The industry has changed considerably since the early days, and drones are perhaps the single biggest driver of that. As a company, Helivision has embraced the possibilities that UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) have opened up. Our expansion into aerial drone photography services has been a natural step for our company. The experience we gained from helicopter filming has put us in the unique position of bringing fully trained pilots and experienced camera operators to the UAV sector. Our extensive experience in all forms of aerial cinematography and photography means that we can create bespoke packages for our clients and use the technology that fits their requirements and budget.
The rise to prominence of UAVs has enabled companies that would previously never have commissioned aerial filming to explore new avenues for their marketing and productions. Our aerial drone filming services have been utilized in construction, real estate, land surveys and in search and rescue efforts.
FULLY LICENSED AND INSURED DRONE PILOTS
Helivision operates in FAA regulated airspace every day. We view our UAV fleet as part of the toolkit of an aerial filming company, and our UAVs are operated by the same pilots who fly our helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. They are all FAA part 107 certified and insured through our insurance partner, Starr Aviation, so you can rest assured that we bring the same level of professionalism to our aerial drone photography services as we do to the rest of our work.
CUSTOMIZED INSPIRE 1 AIRCRAFT
Helivision captures stunning aerial drone images with the advanced DJI Inspire 1 UAS system. Equipped with the Zenmuse X3 gimbal, the pilot and aerial dp are able to shoot beautiful 4K and HD video as well as take crisp 12 megapixel stills in the same flight.
The DJI Inspire 1 is known for its stability and dual control operations. Helivision’s UAS Division has designed a true pilot in command and camera operator platform by engineering an additional POV camera into the Inspire 1 airframe with zero latency HD video transmitted back to a separate pilot monitor. This unique, in-house modification allows for the pilot and aerial dp to capture professional aerial images the same way the team would in full sized manned aircraft.
