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 if required, agree a safe way of working with our Air Operations team before taking flight.

See below for details. 

Drone (UAV) filming

To get permission, we'd advise you make a request via the 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 see our standard downloadable below.  For queries, contact our 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.
