  • hello – can anyone recommend a good helicopter company in cairo for aerial photography? please email your help is greatly appreciated!

    To shoot over Cairo with a helicopter is either through the military or a private company but because we are the land of security permits, the whole permits process can take about 6 weeks (because you have to go through about 4 different entities). The hour of helicopter flight is about 6,000 L.E. or 1,050 USD. contact me for further information

    Najla Rizk is right. We are indeed the land of security permits & clearances.

    Timing for permit issuance depends very much on the areas needed to fly over.

    Pricing for Military helicopters is 1800 US$.
    Pricing with private company is negotiable depending on total hours of flying. (however military clearance would still be required).

    For any inquiry do not hesitate to contact us

    I think Egypt is one of the country where if you need quick helicopter shoot – you need to bring small remote controll helicam.
    It will cost you about 10000-15000 Euro for 1 shift of shoot with all overweight.
    I know one company in Belgium, one in France. Most expensive one in US.
