Skyrocket your creativity with award-winning quality aircraft sound effects.

Take your projects to new heights with King Collection: Aircraft – featuring world-class recordings from the private library of Academy Award®-winning sound artist Richard King (Dunkirk, Inception) – available exclusively from Pro Sound Effects. Developed in collaboration with King, this library delivers invaluable aircraft sounds expertly captured by industry-leading recordists with the resources of a Hollywood budget.

Be prepared for any scene with detailed sounds from 46 types of aircraft – including commercial airliners, military fighter jets, propeller planes, helicopters, and rockets. Thorough multi-channel recordings synced from multiple perspectives allow you to blend your own designs with whooshing fly bys ripping through air, roaring engines, whining turbines, humming propellors, interior cabin rattles, and much more.

Note: This library is not included in any other King Collection releases.

“Sound in film can be, and should be, a three-dimensional experience where you’re feeling the world as one feels the world in life.”
