The Pursuit Aviation UK office

Pursuit Aviation, a leading global aerial cinematography company for movies, television, commercials and the company behind the development of JETCAM™ and Whiskey Wheels, announced today a global expansion with partner XM2, beginning with a new office at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, UK.

Situated at one of the most iconic studios synonymous with some of the big and small screen’s most enduring productions, Pursuit Aviation/XM2’s newest location is just eight miles from Heathrow airport and 20 miles from central London. It doubles Pursuit Aviation’s global footprint following the 2016 opening of its Van Nuys, CA office in the U.S.

The Pursuit Aviation UK team is offering its full suite of aerial production services, including drones, helicopters, jets, aerial camera systems and coordination for projects of all sizes across Europe and other regions throughout the world.

"The UK office represents a significant milestone in Pursuit Aviation’s growth, and is a testament to our global focus," said Dan Friedkin, founder of Pursuit Aviation. "Together with our partners at XM2, we will further reinforce Pursuit Aviation's position as a leading authority in providing innovative filmmaking solutions, while expanding our expertise in multi-platform aerial cinematography and drone technologies.”

Pursuit Aviation recently partnered with multi-platform aerial cinematography and photography company XM2 to further strengthen the company’s ability to provide unique solutions that address filmmakers’ evolving needs. XM2 works extensively in the film industry providing Drone Aerial Services for filmmakers during production and its labs department develops specialized solutions that employ the latest technology in aerial cinematography.
