The world of TV and movie production can certainly appear glamorous from the outside, but it takes an extraordinary amount of hard work and planning to create the final product we all see on screen. And for the small group of aviation companies who are entrusted to help make the magic happen, no detail is too small, or plan too thorough.
One of the premier providers of helicopter and fixed-wing aviation assets and services to the motion picture and TV industry is Studio Wings, Inc., located at Camarillo Airport, about 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Calif. One of the company's key strengths is its owner - Steve Stafford - who has a long and revered history in Hollywood. As a former director and cinematographer, he has extensive knowledge of the industry.
