Since 1984, Las Vegas-based FlightLine Films has been providing aerospace, live television and motion picture producers with the highest quality in aerial cinematography services, and the company has pioneered visual documentation services for the privatization of space travel advances in the 21st century.

Flightline offers zero-gravity qualified crews and HD cameras for use in the cold vacuum of space, as well housings that allow even traditional cameras to operate in that hostile environment.

Flightline is designing and building the camera systems to document the Red Bull Stratos mission from multiple perspectives, with mounts on a ground-based tracker, in an airborne tracking system, in the capsule, and on Felix Baumgartner’s pressure suit.

red bull air race 2014

September 30, 2013 - Las Vegas Motor Speedway, NV

FlightLine Films spent the day, in spectacular late summer weather, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to film the new online video promo for the upcoming Red Bull Air Race World Championship 2014. The daring and death-defying aerial maneuvering by Champion Red Bull Pilot Kirby Chambliss, was captured from several vantage points for this video montage.

With FlightLine's Tom Schaus piloting the helicopter, Jay Nemeth operated the exterior Gyron camera system mount for the aerial shots. The FlightLine ground crew captured the images from strategic locations along the raceway in high-speed digital capture.
