WELCOME TO THE NEW FLYING CIRCUS WEBSITE! The UK's home of Charly helmets
It has been a very long time coming, and still has a long way to go, so please be aware that it won't yet work smoothly.
While it is still very much a work-in-progress, you can always contact me from the contact me section. If a product is showing out of stock it's always worth dropping us a message in case the website hasn't updated...
SIMON MURPHY'S FLYING CIRCUS
The only reason I am The Boss is because I'm the only one here - and every circus has to have a clown! I've been flying and selling flying equipment since 1976, and have established a reputation for responsible and fair trading. How else could anyone last this long? If you contact the Flying Circus I am likely to be the voice at the end of the 'phone line, or the fingers on the keyboard.
SHEER EXCELLENCE SINCE 1976!
When I started flying Hangies in 1976 there were very few people supplying equipment. I had contacts, and was soon marketing flying suits under the Mistrale trade name (later Zoot). I also negotiated the sole UK Free Flight distributorship for the excellent Diplex altimeters, and suddenly had copious sales, and a new business!
When I wanted a new Chargus Cyclone hang glider, the local dealer and legend John Long agreed to sell me one as long as I took on the dealership. It seemed like a good idea. Over 40 years later and I have been the major supplier of Airwave Gliders during their remarkable heyday in the 1980s, then spent twenty years as UK importer for the magnificent Moyes Gliders from Australia.
Nowadays I'm taking things easier, concentrating on Charly helmets and accessories and lots of secondhand items. It is all about having fun.
