The Flying Pages

About

The flying trapeze act is indeed a circus favorite. It is one of the few circus acts that was invented right here in the United States, and is performed in circuses world wide.

The flying trapeze rigging itself is very complex, and great care must be taken to assure that it is set and guyed out correctly.  It is just about 40 feet from the pedestal board to the catcher, and the rigging is usually 32 - 36 feet in the air. 

Despite what you may have seen in old circus movies, a net is always used for flying trapeze, and landing in the net properly is the first thing a new flyer must learn. 

Like many other circus acts, the Flying Pages are a family act, with two additional young aerialists who have been hired. Willy Pages is the primary catcher, his wife Jill, and children Anthony and Mercedes are all flyers. 

Eric Craft takes the middle catcher's spot, while Kerri Gillespie is also a flyer. These two young trapeze performers came from the Peru, Indiana Youth Circus.
