ADVICE needed on documentary filmmaking equipment

Hi All,

I need some advice on what equipment is best to buy/ hire for a short documentary film. The quality need to be high (big screen), but I have a low budget.
I will be filming interviews (inside and on location) and scenery from a small four seater aeroplane, so the equipment needs to be small and compactable. I will need a zoom lens that can cope with filming from above an aeroplane formation plus the city/ landscape beyond it, ideally able to capture both in one focal length.

I am an amateur filmmaker so am looking for any advice on what equipment I should be taking - camera, sound, lighting...

Thank you,
