Filming & TV

Airship & Balloon Company owns a number of un-branded balloons, which can be used for filming and TV. We regularly work with the main broadcasters and independent production companies as a balloon offers a very stable camera platform and can carry cameraman, director and presenter - something a drone can’t do!
ABC holds a UK Civil Aviation Authority Air Operator Certificate and is a BBC Approved Aerial Filming Contractor - allowing to film from our balloons.

Drone footage commissioned by ABC of the Minion special shape balloon leaving Dover for a 22 mile flight across the English Channel, in April 2017.

We flew a Finnish film crew, making a documentary with a profoundly deaf presenter, who was visiting Bristol Fiesta and wanted to experience flight in a completly new way. We had a great flight and landed with 50 other balloons at the North Somerset Showground. The programme will be broadcast late 2018.
