Crows Nest Films offers CAA qualified drone pilots.

Our crew includes fully qualified, CAA approved drone pilots to add a little aerial magic to your production.

Our award winning team's films are content driven.  Our team works with our clients to capture and deliver their unique story.  We handpick all of our equipment based on the specific character it weaves into the tapestry of the narrative, and our remotely piloted aircraft system is no exception.  Drones are a fantastic tool and can add some captivating orchestral manoeuvres to the symphony of our films.

Our principle drone is a Mavic 2 Pro.  Hasselblad's glass on DJI's chassis is our RPAS of choice for stability, reliability and performance.  It has 4k and HD capability and can be airborne at Peregrine Falcon speed.  



Crows Nest Films is fully insured and our team have Permission for Commercial Operation from the Civil Aviation Authority.  As with all of our productions, safety is paramount, and Fleur, our CAA registered manager, will walk through all the groundwork with you and the crew before take off. 


Captain Carney also uses his drone pilot's licence to help Buxton Mountain Rescue Team on search and rescue missions in the Peak District, where they were the first team in England and Wales to be given drone approval by the CAA.  You can read more about that here.


No job is too big or too small for our crew, so if you're interested in what our drone team can do for you, please get in touch.
