Skyworks is the world’s largest aerial stock footage archive, with over 120,000 clips from four continents. The footage is all filmed by us using some of the most advanced equipment available. You can search, license and download footage directly from our archive site, or use the form below to find what you need. Most of our aerial footage can be supplied in any format, including remastering to 4K.




With over 200 documentaries produced, Skyworks are specialists in aerial-only and aerial-ground factual TV. We have produced series and stand-alones for the BBC, Discovery and Smithsonian Channel amongst many others. Our flagship show "The World from Above" has aired in over 65 countries and is in its 11th season with over 140 episodes.

We are known for our shows about walking and outdoors lifestyle as well as history and culture

For the last 10 years we have been developing apps and online mapping resources using our footage. Our 'Footage Map' has created a valuable resource for creators to locate the footage they need. We have also developed consumer facing video mapping systems such as for Montana Tourism;  our short-form mapping content is used by Discovery Education and Oddizzi platforms, and we have created consumer apps with Nokia and Adobe. 

Skyworks is constantly filming aerial footage from all around the world, and we are always on the lookout for new opportunities. In the main, we use helicopters mounted with gyro-stabilised camera systems, however we also use drones and other filming technologies. We pride ourselves on being much more than a 'camera for hire': our interest is in creating footage to the highest editorial and technical standards, and to that end we are proud to work with some of the best people in the business.
