Flying by Foy is a flying effects company with a rich history of technical innovation and artistic excellence. Founded in 1957 by Peter Foy, whose advancements in the field of flying technology are legendary, the name Flying by Foy has become virtually synonymous with the art of theatrical flying.
Foy flying equipment is renowned for its superior performance, ease of operation and matchless reliability, and our Flying Directors are among the industry’s most highly-skilled and respected practitioners of the craft.
Our Flying Directors bring all of their resources to bear, working in collaboration with directors, choreographers, performers, designers and technical staff to create extraordinary flying effects, simulated weightlessness and underwater sequences, hanging and falling effects – everything from basic wire work to complex Aereography® - in a wide range of physical venues, from small studio facilities to giant arenas and open air environments.
We work with a surprisingly diverse clientele - from school and amateur groups to professional theatre, ballet and opera companies, feature films, TV shows and televised events, industrials, touring productions and stadium shows around the world.
With offices in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire and Las Vegas, Nevada, Flying by Foy’s tradition of consummate flying expertise, relentless innovation and an unparalleled passion for safety delivers world-class flying on any scale.
