With scenery and wildlife as spectacular as that found in East Africa, film companies are quickly coming to realise that there are still many unspoilt locations available for filming. For filming charters, Everett Aviation provides the perfect platform to get the right shots every time. We have a variety of camera mounts available to choose from. Also, the helicopter can be used to support crews on location as well as transporting celebrities using our V.I.P interior suite. We can undertake to support all levels of filming from major motion pictures to short advertising films for new housing developments and have recently undertaken a filming charter for the Tourism Board of Uganda. Working with the leading Kenyan production companies (Pontac Productions, Viewfinders, Film Studios, Blue Sky, Complete) we are able to offer all services required for your production.
