Custom Aerial Photo Door

New! Exclusive FAA-Approved Aerial Photo Door

SkyPix St. Louis is the only local aerial photography company to offer a special aerial photo door on its helicopter. This custom FAA-approved door is made by Tech-Tool plastics and manufactured specifically for the Robinson R44 model. With its own sliding window, the aerial photo door allows for undistorted shooting without removing the door altogether.

Experienced professional photographers will appreciate this advantage on cold weather photo flights!

SkyPix Helicopter Services for Professional Photographers

Professional Photographers should demand a professional organization to supply the helicopter they need for that unique perspective that only an aerial shot or video can provide for them and their customers. SkyPix pilots are safe, trained, and experienced. The Chief Pilot, Charlie Duchek, has over 20 years of experience in flying many of the best and most professional photographers and videographers in the United States and around the world. He has flown videographers from organizations like PBS and photo-journalists from all over the country and Europe who sought him out specifically for their national or international projects. When you choose SkyPix, you’ve made the best choice possible in the St. Louis region for the aerial photo assignment you’re working on. You only pay for the use of the aircraft. You decide how to price your job and services to your customer. AND, with the 4-place Robinson R44 helicopter, you can bring one or two clients or assistants along (depending on passenger weights and total fuel load) to advise you, make recommendations, or direct the shoot.

Our Helicopter

SkyPix St. Louis uses the Robinson model R44 helicopter, the most popular helicopter ever built. The R44 is one of the safest and most reliable helicopters ever produced. The R44 can handle up to 4 individuals: the pilot & photographer, plus up to 2 passengers (subject to some weight and fuel limitations).

Plus, the SkyPix helicopter has been outfitted with a custom photo door. Our helicopter features an aerial photography door complete with sliding window. That way you can get clear shots, without distortion and without the need to remove the door from the helicopter.
