The 2013 Season Finale of Criminal Minds recently aired on CBS and we are excited to announce Studio Wings once again coordinated and flew the exciting aerial action! The night time aerial filming included FBI HQ rooftop take offs and landings, numerous air-to-air shots, as well as precision landings in a deserted field and a simulated helicopter crash which resulted in a dramatic finale! Studio Wings utilized its Safety Management Systems manual to exceed FAA safety requirements by carefully identifying and fully mitigating the risks involved in filming multiple helicopters, flying and landing in close formation at night.
Check out the 2-hour Season 8 Finale, Episode 23 "Brothers Hotchner/The Replicator" at CBS Criminal Minds
Studio Wings aerial expertise can also be seen on the upcoming NBC series, Conspiracy and recent episodes of Castle and Glee.
