Aerial Production

With over 20 years of experience in the motion picture and television production industry, Cherokee Helicopter Service is passionate about aerial filmography. We operate within the provisions of our FAA Approved Motion Picture and Television Production Manual with low altitude waiver. We offer in house SAG Pilots as well as aerial and ground coordinators for added safety and coordination.

From flying the camera, to aerial coordination of multiple aircraft, to on camera picture work, we work regularly with the FAA, TSA, and security agencies throughout the US to maintain a safe and creative production environment. We are dedicated to making the production process go smoothly from ┬ástart to the finish and “wrap”.

We have in house FAA Approved Mechanics which are required for many of the camera mounts and on site installations used in production. Flying the camera creatively or positioning the picture ship in the right angle or point of view is something we do regularly, thus permitting the client to get the image right the first time. While we offer in house Cineflex and Tyler Systems, we work regularly with SpaceCam, Pictorvision / Eclipse, Nettmann Super G and Stab C, and Gyron as well.

While we travel throughout the US for on site aerial production services, we regularly work in the northeast, including New York City, Washington DC with ADIZ Flight Experience and TSA coordination, to Chicago and the Mid West.
