We have years of experience mounting Cineflex and Shotover systems to Bell 206BIII Jet Rangers, Bell 206-L3 and L4 Long Rangers, Bell 407s, and Eurocopter AS350 Astars and AS355 Twinstars. We have also built and modified mounts to fit various military and police aircraft on international projects.

Aerial Filmworks can also provide custom modified mounts for unique environments where field approval can be granted by the local aviation authority. These mounts usually position the Cineflex from the side of the helicopter and have been used on productions where military aircraft are the only available helicopter option.
