By using our 10m CAA permission we can get your shot where others can’t.
Are you looking for that one stunning precision shot? Look no further than Skypower. Established in 2012, we are the most established and recommended operator of aerial filming drones in the business. As a pioneering force in the drone photography business, we are one of the few companies to be licensed with an OSC – meaning that we can operate within congested areas, including towns and cities, within 10m of areas not in our control.
What does this mean for you, we hear you ask?
It means that when you hire a drone with us, not only do you get access to the most experienced, award-winning camera operators and pilots in the United Kingdom; you also get the possibility of capturing shots that most companies could only dream of. And with pilots who are well-versed in the exacting standards required by directors and producers, you can be assured of a highly professional, technically advanced and bespoke service to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your crew.
We have offices in London and Wiltshire, and can operate our top-quality drone photography and filming services across the whole of the UK and beyond. Our equipment is fully optimised for overseas travel and we are always happy to undertake work worldwide.

At Skypower we operate a wide variety of drones spanning a whole host of different specialisations, resolutions and capabilities. With some of today’s most advanced crafts at our disposal, there is no production or photoshoot that we can’t cater for. From large drones capable of carrying 4K broadcast-quality cameras, to the more agile and lightweight models perfect for indoor use, we are equipped to handle everything from a site survey to a fast-moving sports event. We can even provide a drone LED light system, to light up the skies at 130,000 lumens.
When it comes to aerial photography, you should settle for no less than the best. Whether you require a high-resolution photo of a construction project, a superior-quality real estate photo or a superb landscape/general view snapshot, Skypower use the very best equipment on the market to capture perfect shots every time. Using high-resolution, 42-megapixel cameras controlled by exceptionally talented drone pilots, we can capture some truly stunning shots – ideal for CGI visualisations and marketing materials. Our drones can also carry heavy loads, meaning Red Epic or Alexa Mini can be lifted to the skies without a problem.
At Skypower we are committed to providing a bespoke, top-quality and exceptionally professional service that fits smoothly and swiftly into your existing production team with no fuss and no bother. We hold an OSC (operational safety case) with the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) which recognises us as one of the safest, most experienced and most respected providers around. This gives us a whole host of benefits – including permission to fly up to 650ft, and as low as 10m above built-up areas. This means we can legally operate in areas that other companies would not even be able to come close to. We are fully insured both for equipment and liability and have the most experienced pilots in the business on hand – so if you are looking for an established, premium-quality drone hire provider with an excellent network and international scope, then give us a call on 0208 166 9712. We’d love to hear from you.

"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 breathtaking. 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.
