Capturing the best images requires teamwork between the photgrapher and the pilot; we have experience with some of the most demanding aerial photographers and newscasters.
  
Asia Aircraft suggests the Bell 206 Jetranger helicopter for your filming requirements.  It is one of the most famous helicopters and  is an ideal workhorse for photography, television, and aerial filming.  The usual car chase-helicopter scenarios and also most James Bonds films that you see on Television involves the Jet Ranger.  The larger payload of the Bell 206 Jetranger can carry 4 passengers plus the pilot.  It allows the pilot, cameraman, and producer to be airborne for two to three hours depending on the shoot, allowing off shore shoots, long sequences, and a whole lot of retakes for the producer.
