Air TV is one of the UK’s fastest-growing independent production companies and is now officially one of the best places to work in TV. Since we were created in 2015, our award-winning team has won commissions for more than 150 hours of programming from the BBC, Channel 4, UKTV and Channel 5.
From W’s 999 Rescue Squad to BBC One‘s River Walks and Really’s Helicopter ER, Air specialises in taking viewers to the heart of the story on the ground – and in the sky.
We bring unrivalled expertise and knowledge of aviation, the emergency services and medicine to our projects. We also specialise in current affairs, history and documentary.
We’re proudly based in Yorkshire – but our focus is worldwide with production facilities in Australia and major distribution deals with international distributors. Our shows are on air around the globe on channels like Discovery and on demand via Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Our team have filmed in extreme environments from the Arctic to the baking outback of Western Australia. We recently picked up three more prestigious RTS Awards and have now been named as the Prolific North production company of the year. We’re also the only production company with a full-time team of Technical Aircrew qualified to fly on UK air ambulances.

What People Say…
“Helicopter ER has been a brilliant success for Really. There has been a huge appetite for the series.”
Emma BostonGeneral Manager of UKTV Play
“They have shown a very high level of commitment to flight safety and displayed high standards of airmanship. In a world where journalists are often criticised for their lack of understanding of aviation issues…this team is a shining exception.”
Honourable Company of Air Pilots
“Television is full of docs following the emergency services, but 999 Rescue Squad is on a new level. It leads to scenes of stunning intensity and, in one extraordinary moment, a stark but tender reminder of what is at stake.”
Guardian Media Critic
“We’re so proud of the series and what you’ve achieved; it really is an extraordinary piece of access and absolutely fantastic filmmaking too.”
Richard WatshamDirector of Commissioning, UKTV
