FAQ's

  • How many drones do you have?

    We can provide anything from 20 to 500 drones depending on what is required for the animation. Factors such as available ground space also play a part in how many aircraft we can safely operate in an area.

  • How long does a FlightShow last?

    The incredible technology in our aircraft means we can fly for up to 25 minutes (leaving 20 minutes for a show to allow for takeoff and landing). The length of your show all depends on your requirements – we can make anything from an action-packed 3-minute performance to a 20-minute display.

  • Where can I have a FlightShow?

    FlightShows can be carried out on a large range of sites throughout the UK and internationally. Space and location requirements vary significantly with the size of the show we provide – however, as a rough guide, we need 3m2 per drone as well as a 50m safety barrier. Contact a member of our team to discuss your site.

  • Who are FlightShows suitable for?

    FlightShows can be enjoyed by people of all ages – and even local animals will appreciate not hearing loud bangs like a traditional firework display!
