The Imperial Flyers is an amateur flying trapeze club in Westminster, Colorado. We are not a school but rather a group of enthusiasts who support and encourage each other in our enjoyment of flying trapeze. We were founded sometime around 1928 and are probably the oldest continuously-operating flying trapeze club in the world. Our rig is outside, so wind, rain, and snow affect whether or not we can fly. Because of this, we can generally only accomodate guests between the months of May and September.*
A Trapeze 101 Poem by Catcher Bruce LonneckerWe swing as if on a breeze, On our rig that’s as high as the trees. Sign waiver; have endurance; Bring your card of insurance. And fly with the greatest of ease. Each month we offer our rig To people whose bravery is big. For twenty bucks you Can do what we do. It might be a thing that you’ll dig!
(Open House events are held monthly during the summer. Beginner flyers must attend an Open House event.)
