ACS Australia prepares for busy Summer season

03 June 2013

Crews from our Australian office have been gearing up for their busiest season of the year which begun with ACS aerial cameraman, Peter Davis, filming aerials of the Red Bull X Fighters on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour.  Special approval was granted by CASA to fly at 200 feet in the harbour to achieve dramatic shots of the riders during their performances which finished with the overall champion being crowned for the Red Bull X Fighters World Tour.  Re-locating to the Gold Coast, ACS then filmed aerials for the Coolangatta Gold endurance race.

Our crews will also be supplying live aerials on this week’s AFL Final in Melbourne and railcam at the NRL Final in Sydney as well as tracking vehicles at Royal Randwick.  With teams operating in Sydney for the start of the horse racing season for ACS, coverage will continue with the Carnival season in Melbourne where two ACS tracking vehicles will be used to follow the racing around the course.

ACS Australia’s Managing Director, Mick Kagel, commented, 'We’ve had a great start to the season with some really positive feedback from clients.  A lot of the jobs we’re doing this year are repeat work which is really encouraging to see, including the provision for Moto GP at Phillip Island at the end of the month.  The crews are working really hard and the results have been fantastic.’
