aerial photography & filming

Helicopter Aerial Photography Brisbane

Bekaa Air provides fully customisable aerial photography platforms tailored to your needs, whatever and wherever they may be. Our solutions include hand-held stills and high definition footage up to cinema quality standards, shooting up to 8K at 25FPS. We talk to air traffic controllers every day, and know many on first name basis. We have gotten clearance everywhere in Brisbane, including in and out of the approach paths into Brisbane International (YBBN)

Photography for Real Estate, Publications & Artistic Purposes

We have a range of helicopters available all around Brisbane. Better still we are able to meet the requirements of any photographic equipment you wish to use –

The economical Robinson R44 can have its doors removed for handheld equipment. Our larger aircraft, the AS350/H125 FX2 has a double sliding door, and can feature a swindle camera mounted below the nose, controlled remotely from inside the aircraft

Experience & Delivery

We are the preferred provider of aerial photography for the majority of professional aerial photographers and cinematographers in Brisbane and SE Queensland. They choose us because we are experts in efficiently navigating the Brisbane Controlled Airspace. Our pilots have vast experience in aerial photography, ensuring you get the very best shot and the highest standard of professional service at a price that is simply unbeatable

Low Level Approval

We have access to a CASA certified Air Operators Certificate (AOC) that has low-level approval. This allows us to operate under 500ft over non-built up areas for operational requirements. It’s perfect for those closer shots which would usually require large telephoto lenses that are difficult to use inside the confines of a helicopter

At our company, we don’t just maintain or care for our helicopters – we love them. We go above and beyond to ensure that every detail is attended to, from the direction of the bristles on the interior carpet to the three-step process we use to clean the windows. Each helicopter has its own dedicated engineer who knows the machine inside and out, resulting in helicopters that have been flying for years but still look brand new. We strive to provide a personal, customized service that meets your specific needs. Our fleet includes the Robinson R44RII VH-HIP and VH-FOA, the powerful FX2 Airbus H125/AS350 VH-JVC, and the versatile Bell 206 Longranger VH-DUB. All of our aircraft feature Bose noise-cancelling headsets, upgraded leather interiors, and top-of-the-line avionic systems by Garmin and Sagem, including traffic and terrain warning systems and radar altimeters. Our R44s also have exclusive full glass panorama doors, available only on Bekaa Air helicopters.

Maintenance & Pilots

At Bekaa Air, safety is our top priority. That’s why we go above and beyond to ensure that our aircraft are maintained to the highest standards, exceeding all requirements set by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. Our aircraft undergo extensive scheduled maintenance, including servicing every 50 hours of flight time. Our maintenance staff are dedicated to individual aircraft and are the only ones allowed to perform maintenance on our helicopters. They know the machines inside and out, ensuring that they are always in top condition. Our pilots are highly experienced, ranging from Grade One flight instructors with thousands of hours of flight time to line pilots who work for Airbus. No matter who is at the controls, you can rest assured that safety is always at the forefront of everything we do
