The Fly Company was established as a response for the need to have an aerial team with a background in the film and television industry. Unfortunately it isn’t just the case of putting a UAV in the air, there is the firm requirement to execute a well designed shot, understand set etiquette and communicate with the other members of a production in an experienced way. Our flight crew is comprised of established members of the camera department having worked on flagship television dramas, feature films, commercials and music videos, we understand the aesthetics of getting a great shot. We also build and maintain all our aircraft in-house so we know how to get them operating at their maximum potential.
When undertaking survey or inspection work, we operate closely with the client to obtain the information that’s needed. In many cases we work alongside established professionals.
