Skyworks is a specialist in HD aerial filming and content - we create unique aerial HD stock footage for use in film and broadcast productions, advertising and corporate video, and all types of interactive applications. Filmed in HDCAM SR video, our aerial HD stock footage archive is the largest of its kind, and is used by broadcasters and producers worldwide. We also make our own broadcast TV programming such as the World from Above series and create a variety of  interactive content based around our aerial footage archive.

Behind the Scenes

Here is a 'making of...' video we made while filming in Brazil and shows how we work in and around the helicopter (and where communication is a little more challenging than when we are filming from a drone).

Skyworks UAV (Drone) filming

We believe that what is most important about aerial filming is that it is outstanding in both editorial and technical quality. While we are best known for our helicopter filming, we also film using UAVs (drones), depending on what is needed. If you use us for drone filming, we can also offer you a special package including helicopter stock footage (subject to availability - contact us for details).

Below is a selection from some drone filming we recently did at the Hospital of St Cross in Winchester.

Aerial footage can be an excellent way to establish a scene, a location, or help you tell your story. Our aerial HD stock footage archive is the largest in the world and covers four continents, from the US to the Middle East, and from Iceland to South Africa. There are several ways to find what you need:

  • Search our online database at
  • Use our mapping interface at the Footage Map
  • Call us on +44 (0)208 878 1177 and ask to speak to Kevin Mannion, our Archive Manager
