In-house Helicam systems operated by a highly experienced team.

Aerial Video Services

We’re a highly skilled team, with over 8 years combined experience in remote aerial video services.

Offering rapid deployment, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full size helicopter and with no environmental impact, our octocopter systems are specially designed for super-smooth aerial video and pin-point accuracy. They can soar high above or swoop low to capture the action, get great landscape aerials and fantastic close-ups.

With over 10 years combined experience using drones for aerial video and filming, we have the knowledge and experience required to provide the very best aerial imagery, and we know how to keep our systems flying – in rain, winds and in the remotest of locations (we’ve been known to re-build an entire system, from the back of a truck in the middle of the Kenyan Savannah). From the new breed of mirror-less cameras such as the Sony A7 series, to thermal cameras, high end stills cameras and of course RED and Arri cameras, we can fly what you need.

Check out or Drone Systems page for more.

We hold a full CAA permission for aerial video operations along with all necessary qualifications and insurance. This includes permission to fly at night and in urban areas within 30m of the public and buildings, without the need for additional exemptions – we are one of only a few companies to have this extended permission granted by the CAA.

Our International experience means we can be relied upon to take our systems anywhere. We are confident we can deal with transport, customs and the general logistics of getting our systems to locations and making sure we can legally fly them once there. Legislation varies greatly from country to country, so this kind of experience is very important when working internationally.

The shots went down very well with (the director) who is in charge of our election programmes. So many thanks to you and Jack.

Thank you to (Horizon AP) for the amazing post titles drone shot in tonight's ep. Truly professional and talented team.

Jermain Julien | Wolfblood - CBBC

Just a note to say a big thank you to you both for all your excellent work on "Robson Green's Northumberland." It's added a whole new dimension to the series.

Loved the opening sequence – really worth having you guys along.

Simon Dedman | BBC News

I’ve just got back from our edit and our editor was raving about your drone footage so I watched the sequence. The footage is fantastic, amazingly steady and lovely shots – we’re delighted. Thank you so much. Put Blink Films down as a very happy client.

Deborah Weavers | Production Manager - Blink Films

Many thanks for the excellent shots of the Baton on Friday and Saturday. Everyone was blown away by what, for us, is a fairly new way to gather material of these events and the results have been fantastic.

Andy Reed | Queens Baton Relay - BBC News

I am very passionate about the work that you do, we’re still getting a great result to last year’s footage and I know that we’ll definitely be in touch again in the near future as we have further plans for the brand as a whole… watch this space!

Martyn Owen | Great Glen Paddle

Hope you guys are doing well. We were just looking through some of the aerial footage you guys shot last week and it looks great!

Chandler Clarke | Jalbert Productions

Paddy Davies and Jack Wrangham of Horizon AP were fantastic to work with. As well as their friendly professionalism, their extensive technical experience in developing, building and operating their drone system proved invaluable. They advised extensively in the lead up to the shoot, and provided comprehensive risk assessments and pre-flight documentation allowing the production to plan properly its objectives and deliver some stunning footage of Hadrian's Wall and the lake at Gibson Mill. I would not hesitate in working with them again and Horizon AP would be my first port of call for any similar aerial photography.
