The Fly Legsup Story

We are an Australian company (mother and two daughters), who come from a family long associated with commercial airlines and which has produced six pilots and a flight attendant so far!

Having flown extensively to visit family in the UK, I found it a gruelling experience. On one particular flight I was so desperate to get my feet and legs up so I could sleep on my side, that I used a travel sewing kit to create a crude sling from a torn up pillow case.

An idea was born and many prototypes followed.

Technical advice was sought from an aeronautical engineer and an industrial designer. A talented and long-suffering seamstress (there were lots of modifications), produced the trial hammocks.

Many hours of testing were carried out in our garage using retired airline seats and on real flights.

The result is a 'tool' that can be adapted to suit all age groups and allows you to raise your feet and legs into many different positions, so that flying economy is a less uncomfortable and taxing experience.

We hope you find that the hammock helps you when you fly long haul and would love to get your feedback!

Best wishes,
