Filming aircraft in flight is a demanding skill that requires many hundreds of hours of experience, as well as a good understanding of how a flying display is conducted. This is Flight’s Film Unit is one of Europe’s leading small-budget airshow filming specialists, having worked with airshows, aerobatic teams and aircraft owners around the world. As well as producing promotional videos, we also make long-form documentaries, supply camera operators to other film crews, undertake aerial filming and licence our extensive archive of material to TV shows, events promotors and more. Based in the UK, the team consists of camera operator and video editor Adam Landau, drone operator Alex Prins and a small number of international partners.
The ultimate all-in-one package to create a top-notch video showreel for your event or airshow performer. We work hard not just to capture beautiful images of the air display itself, but also the atmosphere and emotions of those watching from the ground.
Since 2018, we have produced promotional videos for the Midlands Air Festival, Aerosparx Display Team, GliderFX, the Weston Park International Model Airshow, Antidotum Airshow Leszno and others.

By partnering with the Aerosparx Display Team, we are uniquely qualified and experienced to operate drones in an airshow environment. As a low-cost alternative to a manned cameraship, we have captured spectacular aerial imagary at airshows in the UK, Portugal, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Poland, often flying inside the aerobatic box with prestigious aerobatic teams such as the Saudi Hawks. Live footage from the drone can be provided via HDMI output to feed into live broadcasts.
We also have experience of conventional air-to-air filming and photography from manned aircraft, when a cameraship and pilot can be provided.
USE OUR FOOTAGE
Over hundreds of hours of airshow filming, we have amassed a large archive of high-quality aviation videos featuring famous aerobatic teams, military jets from around the world, rare classic aircraft and more – much of it filmed in Ultra High Definition.
Our footage has been used in a landmark Smithsonian TV documentary series, by the air forces of Singppore and Indonesia, and in promotional videos for the Air Race World Championship, Team Raven, Antidotum Airshow Leszno and Gdynia Aerobaltic Airshow.
