We provide aerial filming services throughout the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Mexico, Central America and South America. We work closely with film experienced helicopter companies throughout the world.  We have two locations to serve our clients in the United States. Our Corporate Headquarters are in Austin, Texas and our East Coast office is in Richmond, VA.  Aerial cinema is our specialty.

We are now using the new Inspire 2 to capture both video and still photos.  The Zenmuse X5S captures photos at 20.8 MP and video up to 5.2K. The Inspire 2 workflow has been completely optimized which allows fast transfer of files direct from the Cine SSD card and quick delivery of images to our clients.

HDaerial offers High Definition Video Mapping. Our system is an ArcGIS extension that provides geospatial random access to digital video through the ArcMap interface. We can provide Geo-code images with GPS data embedded in the data fields of high resolution images. These Geo-coded high definition videos (1920 x 1080p or up to 6K) are powerful tools for utility and pipeline surveying.


Safety is our number one concern at HDaerial. Prior to each production we conduct a safety briefing, a pilot pre-flight safety check-off and implement a strict list of ground protocol to insure the highest standards of safety for our people in the air and on the ground.
