Fully ROC Certified

RPA-L and ROC-Light certified pilots

Kiwi is a professional company that has it’s own ROC drone company certification (101/2019 v1). 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 and for example 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!

We love big productions

We can make shots happen that weren't possible before! Here we fly with a custom build, 22K helicopter rig, only 20 meters above the water in Rotterdam!
