A Community In Action

The Society of Aerial Cinematography (SOAC) is a community of Production, Post Production, Aviation and Radio Control professionals serving the Entertainment Industry and those interested in the professional use of multi rotors in production.


The SOAC is an excellent opportunity to network with others in the industry.
We have a solid foundation of supporters typically not accessible outside of the set of a major motion picture production.
Sharing experiences with each other, and learning from one another are just some of the benefits of networking with others in our small but focused community.


Members of the SOAC are highly talented and respected individuals in the Aviation, Entertainment and Radio Control Industries.
Many are private and commercial pilots, as well as flight instructors.
We are also honored to have support from many of the industries most popular vendors, and manufacturers of cameras, drones, and accessories.
Joining the SOAC gives you access to other members, and their plethora of expertise and experience.


The current state of regulations can really be confusing; it doesn’t have to be.
We have ties with a network of lawyers well versed in aviation that can help you in plain English.
If you’re looking to file for your 333 exemption, the SOAC can help.
We can put you in touch with the right people who can support you through the process.
