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.

"These are F$%king great! Million dollar shots. Game changing images, Bond on a budget!"
The Skypower duo provided beautiful shots for us with minimum fuss. In my experience, some pilots and camera operators don't pull off the teamwork required to deliver. I have no hesitation in saying that the Skypower guys did.
We used Skypower for an aerial shot on a short client film and in a few words we simply could not have achieved what we had hoped without them! They understood exactly what we required and were extremely helpful in sharing with us their expertise and knowledge. In addition to their professionalism and skills in aerial filming, they were a lot of fun to work with and helped make it an enjoyable and relaxed experience. We hope and look forward to working with them again.
Skypower were the definition of unflustered. We had a combination of challenges: night shoot, scattered showers, limited time and squads of passers-by. The Skypower team stayed ice-cold throughout: they helped us find a way to get every shot we wanted and the results are breath-taking. We wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.
We got in contact with Skypower after we had been let down by another supplier and despite the last minute nature of the request they were incredibly helpful in organising our shoot in just a couple of days time.
Hi Neil, Everyone is very happy with the footage I saw some yesterday myself and it looks amazing. I can say with much confidence that I am pretty sure that we will want to use the copter again.
Skypower helped us film a Public Safety demonstration video in the centre of London, a very challenging environment from a Civil Aviation perspective. The company helped us identify a location and worked with us to find the best time for launch and filming (including coping with tide and weather conditions). In the end we ended up with some footage which could have ben from the "Bourne identity" of a suspect running across the Millennium Bridge. Excellent work guys.
Thank you, it looks fantastic, I can't wait to see the reaction at the grand reveal - I know the lads were really excited about it when I saw them last week, 5 mins of fame and all! Really appreciate the effort everyone put in! Great working with you.
