Why Use Ascent?

Less Expensive:
Many of our clients would have paid 5 times as much to achieve the same shots with full scale alternatives.

Less Intrusive:
Much quieter than a full size helicopter with a downwash that is almost undetectable.

Our Helicopters Are Portable:
We can bring our equipment with us on our flight as checked luggage.
With the equipment weighing approximately 150lbs, a two man team can handle nearly any project almost anywhere in the world.

More Maneuverable:
Ascent’s helicopters can operate indoors and in tight locations, we offer a much more versatile filming option in general.

More Convenient:

* No FAA Approval Necessary. Ascent’s system requires zero FAA red tape. Although required to stay below 400’’ above ground level, Ascent’s services are viewed simply the same as a ground camera operator.

* During your remote location projects, we eliminate the logistical head-ache of finding/shipping a helicopter, pilot, or gimbal system, etc. Simply send members of our team along with your crew and experience the same predictable high level of service every time.

Fast Set-up:
We can typically have our system ready to film in under 10 minutes.

Green Technology:
The average traditional manned helicopter consumes roughly 35 gallons of fuel per hour. With our electrically powered helicopters we have zero carbon exhaust emissions!

Reliability & Safety:
Safety is always Ascent’s primary concern. We strictly follow the industry guidelines regarding the use of helicopters in motion picture and television production.
