Special Notes (Aerial photography)

  • A 5 hour daily minimum charge for mount-flown operations
  • Landing fees and departure taxes may be applicable;
  • Duties, customs charges, custom brokerage for imported equipment may apply
  • Bulk rates must be negotiated on a job by job basis.
  • While mount rental arrangements can be made, many rental companies prefer to deal directly with Production Companies. Hence, Tropical Discoveries recommends that mount rental be handled directly by the Producers. We are willing to provide our support and assistance throughout the process in any way that we can.
  • A valid Type Certificate is required before any mount can be attached to the helicopters
  • Although hull insurance covers loss and damage of mounts once on the helicopter, in the case of very expensive systems, such as the WesCam, additional insurance may be required. Additional coverage for mounts can be purchased at the Production’s expense.
  •  Low flying, night operations, and other restricted activities must be approved by the St. Lucian Authorities. The grant of such waivers takes time so thorough descriptions of mission requirements need be provided well in advance of shooting.
  • Doors off for shooting is no problem; the Island’s latitude puts the sun high in the sky for most of the day. Long shadows occur roughly 30 minutes after sunrise and 30 minutes before sunset;
  • Weather in St. Lucia is nice all year round but cloud cover is considerably more prevalent from August to January;
  • Shooters should be picked carefully. The feeling of exposure with doors off, next to sheer, cliffs, thousands of feet high, especially when shooting hand-held, can “freak” people out and spoil any chance of getting the shot.
