Our Eurocopter helicopters have three or four bladed rotor systems that provide exceptionally smooth flight characteristics, making them the perfect base for either hand held or gyro-stabilised aerial filming.

Microflite have an extensive portfolio of filming for live broadcast, film, television and production houses. With both single and twin-engine helicopters we can assist you to film a wide range of projects in challenging conditions, in many formats both day and night. Our EC120 helicopters with fenestron tail rotors and low noise signatures are the ideal aircraft for film work, especially when overhead major public events or in noise sensitive environments.  Our powerful AS350 B3 helicopters with increased performance and manoeuvrability are the perfect choice for more demanding applications and environments.

Microflite have a long and proud history of working with a leading provider of aerial film equipment and crew.  Together, we have perfected the art of filming from the air and consistently combine quality aircraft, skilful pilots, experienced operators and advanced equipment to deliver exceptional results.
