UPDATE - 04.01.2022

Due to the ongoing pandemic
, we currently assesses all shoots on a case-by-case basis.  Please submit an enquiry form or call us direct before making an application.  Further information is available on our safety guidance page.  We thank you for your continued patience.

Aerial filming

Aerial filming

Filming with drones and helicopters is increasingly popular, but even the smallest drone can pose a risk to the railway.

We ask that you let us know and agree a safe way of working with our Air Operations team before taking flight.

See below for details. 

Drone (UAV) filming

Requests should be made via our dronecloud portal.  Although the service is free, fees apply to those shoots which either take off or land on our property or infrastructure.

For help and queries, contact the Air Operations team.

Helicopter filming

Requests are judged on a case-by-case basis. 

We need one month to consider this, and will charge a non-refundable fee of £1,000+VAT.  Additional fees may apply if your application is successful.  Please contact us for more information.
