Flying by Foy is the most famous and widely-respected theatrical flying company in the world. Peter Foy's innovative techniques and patented mechanical inventions elevated the ancient practice of stage flying to a 20th century art form, giving wings to thousands of Peter Pans, including four Broadway incarnations. Foy pioneered the development of sophisticated automated systems for flying performers and leads the field today with Aereographer, the world’s most advanced design tool for flying automation. Foy’s regular clientele includes the MTV Movie and Video Music Awards, Walt Disney Theatrical, NBC Saturday Night Live, and Royal Caribbean International.
More than 50 Broadway shows have featured Foy Aereography, including American Idiot, Angels in America, Billy Elliot, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Kiss of the Spider Woman, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Nine, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Tarzan, The Who's Tommy, Priscilla - Queen of the Desert and Chaplin the Musical.
Foy’s history on television dates to the beginning of the medium itself, from the first live broadcast of Peter Pan with Mary Martin to I Love Lucy - from The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – from the Oscars and Tony Awards to Dancing with the Stars and The X-Factor.
Foy provided televised simulations for NASA’s Gemini and Apollo missions, sent Olympic Gold Medalist Nadia Comăneci soaring hundreds of feet above Times Square for the Olympic Torch Relay and gracefully glided the Wright Flyer Replica over the over the heads of dignitaries, aviators and luminaries at the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center to mark the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ historic first flight.
