The experts in aerial filming and drone filming in London, South West England and worldwide

Skypower was one of the first professional drone operators to be licensed with the Civil Aviation Authority (PFAW 136). We were also one of the first drone operators in the country to be granted special permission to fly closer than 50m in built-up areas such as London with permission to fly within 10m – and we remain one of the only drone providers to carry that privilege in London, Wiltshire and the United Kingdom. We’re accredited by entertainment and media safety specialists First Option Safety, as well as all our staff being CSCS card holders.

So what does all this mean?

We see it as a testament to our hardworking, compliant and exceptional-quality multi-level filming services. With a license to film closer than most other companies and the experience to navigate our way around special permissions, Skypower guarantees a superior service and a better-quality shot than any other. Be it high-resolution photography, live broadcasting or drone filming in London, our highly-skilled pilots and drone photographers will capture footage that will simply blow your audience away. Not only that, but you know all work will be carried out with the highest of safety standards in place. That’s why we’re a preferred supplier for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.

We have offices in London and Wiltshire and cover the whole of the UK. Our equipment is prepared for overseas travel, and we are happy to take on projects worldwide.
