Since the 2017/18 season, we have been producing the live aerial images for the Bundesliga in more than 80 flights per season. The TVN Live-Copter delivers exterior shots of the stadiums and their surroundings as well as of the teams’ bus arrivals or even individual match scenes.

On behalf of the ATP, one of our copter teams was in Monaco in April 2023 and produced aerial footage on the Côte d'Azur for up to four parallel live feeds.

At one of the first pandemic ghost concerts of 2020, the Telekom Street Gig featuring James Blunt at the opera house Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, we were in the air for MagentaMusik 360 above the Port of Hamburg.

Hamburg World Water Marathon
At the ITU World Water Marathon in Hamburg’s city park, we provided the live aerial coverage of the competition between top international athletes over two days.

During the match, we were able to offer replays of crucial match scenes from a bird's eye view.
