Jerry Grayson SAR pilot 1972-79

Jerry's eight years flying in the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm culminated in him being awarded the Air Force Cross by Her Majesty the Queen for outstanding gallantry in Search and Rescue.

In 1980 he left the Navy, channelling his flying into film work and rapidly earned the accolade of being one of the world's leading helicopter film pilots, designing the aerial action sequences on "James Bond" movies such as "View to a Kill". He flew and directed aerial sequences for over 300 TVCs, 60 factual documentaries and many feature films, leading eventually to the director's role in 1989 with the formation of Helifilms.

He has directed 'The Earth Wins', the first IMAX film ever shot entirely from the air. You can read about it here.
