About Aerial Pyro-Tech

The Aerial Pyro-Tech story began when someone found a loophole in the legislation that allowed companies to sell the consumer bags of fireworks to the general public for a short time back 1998 – 1999.  A friend of mine worked at a local business and a van came around selling  bags of fireworks. He got two bags, one for himself and one for me. I used these fireworks  for my mum’s birthday. I stood them in a bucket of sand to hold them upright but one leaned over in the sand and shot between me and my best mate.  Luckily, no one was injured!

A month later there was an advert in the local Trading Post about doing a course and getting a licence to do fireworks. In January 2000, I signed up for the course and successfully completed it.  This is where Aerial Pyro-Tech was born.
