At Kiwi Aerial Shots we have a workshop great diversity of drones, cameras and technical equipment. For the bigger drone productions, we work with heavier payloads for which we fly our Matrice600 or heavy lifter: The Kiwi X8 drone. With the X8 drone, we can lift payloads up to 10KG.
For some of the drone productions its faster and easier to fly our DJI Inspire 2 drone with X7 or X5s camera. Next to these drones, we make custom parts and rigs in our fully equipped workshop. This means we can provide in special aerial shot requests. Read more about this on our Technics page. For more information about our drones and cameras, check our Drones and Camera page.
Kiwi Aerial Shots is a so-called ROC certified drone company which means we can get exemptions to fly in every possible air space. Next to this, we work with certified RPA-L and officialy tested and certified drones.
This heavy-lift drone gives us the capacity to lift the bigger camera setups. The Kiwi X8 drone has a maximum take of weight of 25KG!
The DJI Inspire 2 is a commonly used drone that we use for all sorts of productions. We fly the Inspire 2 with a X7 or X5s, depending on your whishes.

Certified drone company
ROC certified drones and RPA-L pilots
Regarding the Dutch drone regulations, we have all the knowledge you need to know. Together with our certified drones and RPA-L certified pilots we can get exemptions on locations that others can’t get. We can fly in the harbor of Rotterdam or in the airspace of Amsterdam. We have the info to contact air traffic control in all the different airspaces in the Netherlands. Get in touch when you have a question about certain parts of the country and we can inform you about the possibilities.
For some parts of the Dutch airspace we need to get official permission of Air traffic control. At Kiwi we have all the needed contacts and experience to get the needed permission to make the best possible shots.
Big Dutch cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Maastricht are all within controlled civil airspace because of a nearby airport. We can get permission to fly in these restricted airspaces with a so-called RT operator.
As we are a fully certified drone company we can get special exemptions like flying at night or city center locations as Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
For the so-called CTR (controlled traffic regions) within the Dutch airspace, we have to send out a NOTAM before we can start our drone flight. This 'Notice To Airmen' is part of our pre-production and we can always inform you about.
Our drone workflow methods
Camera, location, subject and production
When we have the first contact about a video production we want to discuss the exact wishes. Sometimes this is completely clear other times a conversation is needed to get to this in which we are more than happy to help. The main subject to get clarity about is for example the type of camera that is needed. This determines the drone we need for the shoot. Next to that, it’s important to know what the subject of the video will be and what the role of the drone shots is in the overall video production. Next to these, the location is a very important factor. This to get a clear insight into the safety on the ground and exact airspace we have to carry out the drone flights.
For bigger productions it’s possible we go on a recce with the DoP and or director. We can discuss the whole production and check safety measures that must be taken into account. If everything is all good to go we contact IL&T if we need to get special exemptions and later one we will contact LVNL to state our drone flight. If you want more information about the Dutch Drone regulations or the controlled airspace within the Netherlands, check our Kiwi blog page. Of course, you can also just contact us, tell us about your video production and we will make sure everything is handled in the right way.
