About Us

Freedom Flying was set up by Ben Haynes in order to continue his work within the performer flying industry, whilst pursuing the quest for greater and more spectacular flying effects.

Ben worked with Flying by Foy for twelve years and felt the time was right to move on and to take on new and varied projects as an individual. During his time at Flying by Foy, Ben was involved in many projects in theatre, television, film and pop videos, ice shows, photo shoots and corporate events.

Safety is an increasing cause of concern for many people these days, and understandably so. We have spent a considerable amount of time discussing these matters with the British Standards Institute (BSi), Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT), and various other organisations to come up with an acceptable new standard for Performer Flying. We have also designed a comprehensive paperwork package for clients and would be happy to discuss any of your concerns.

In the past few years there have been more companies working in the performer flying industry than ever before, but with more than twenty years in the business, we are confident that we can make our experience count. Lifting somebody off the ground can be the easy part, but getting the performer to look like they are flying can be another matter altogether!

Whilst understanding how important the flying equipment is to the effect, we are also very aware of the importance of the choreography, and are always looking to experiment with artists and choreographers to design new routines.

We can assure all of our clients that we only take on the number of projects that we know we can do, and do to an excellent standard.

We look forward to working with you.
