Flying performers is our
only business, and we do it really well. Whether for a play,
musical, dance performance, opera, church drama, or corporate event, we
have the equipment, skills and experience to create flying effects that
will WOW your audiences. No effect is too large or too small.
All D2 Flying Effects'
ETCP certified riggers and have years of experience flying
performers. Our systems are built from
aircraft quality aluminum to be both strong and lightweight, our
harnesses are some of the most
flying harnesses available, and our
staff is friendly, respectful and knowledgeable. We will work
with the director and/or choreographer to ensure you get the
effects that you
want. We also work with your scenic, lighting and costume
designers to ensure that everything works together (and we have online
resources that can help designers who have never designed for a
production with performer flying). We understand that many of
clients have little or no experience with performer flying effects, and
we take the time to make sure that everyone understands everything they
need to know to make the right decisions for their productions.
Whether you are an
elementary school needing a small manual effect or a Broadway show in
need of motorized flying winches, or anything in between,
create flying effects to meet your needs, your facility and your

of the opera - Chandelier
We now have a BEAUTIFUL large
chrystal chandelier for Phantom
of the Opera. It was designed to work with one
of our track system so that it can "fall" and swing across the audience
- landing on the stage, even in theatres where there is not a lot of
height over the house. What's more, it is completely manually
operated, saving you the cost of renting expensive winches.
It is easy to operate too. Your audience will be talking about this effect for a long time.
(flying) Gloves for your Operators
When it comes to flying
performers, having the right gloves makes a HUGE difference! D2 Flying

rope) for all your flying operators at no additional cost.
