As gear has got smaller, lighter and more sophisticated, Aerial Filming no longer always has to involve expensive helicopters and static cranes. Production companies are increasingly using drones to nail those shots that require dramatic panoramas, adrenaline-filled action sequences, 360-degree views of subjects or literal birds’ eye views.
Unlike full-sized helicopters, drones can also get down to ground level, with smaller shadows and less air disturbance. These are qualities that are particularly useful for TV and Film, to capture everything from a body on the side of the road for a small Independent Film to showing Tower Bridge and the London skyline for BBC News and Television programmes.
Shots like these are impressive; however, without drone technology they would be a lot more complicated – and more expensive.
Known for being the best training in the business, the ICARUS courses have been carefully compiled by former military pilot instructors and are delivered by experienced drone operators.
The course comprises of:
· Mandatory CAA Training

· Night Flying Theory Course - So you can operate your drone legally at night!
