Kiwi is a professional and fully certified Dutch drone company that has its own European exploitation certificates. In short, this means we can fly our drones in parts of the airspace where others are not allowed to fly. Herefore, we can get all the possible exemptions in the Netherlands. This means we can get permission to fly our drones in Amsterdam, in Rotterdam, offshore maritime locations, we can perform drone flights at night, close-range aerial shots near actors, buildings, and above roads.




In the last decade, Kiwi grew slowly and to be honest, we would like to keep it this way. We love to work from a small professional team that cooperates smoothly in every decision and challenge. Professional pilots, technical custom rig builders and true wizards of the post-production. We only work with the best so we can always go for maximum results!
