The Aerial Pyro-Tech Story

Scott - Aerial Pyro Tech owner

Scott – Owner of Aerial Pyro-Tech

The Aerial Pyro-Tech story began when a loophole was found 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 my best mate and myself.

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.

Beautiful fireworks for wonderful events

And so the journey began…

Thus, he began his own company, known as Aerial Pyro-Tech.  Aerial Pyro-Tech is a family owned, Brisbane based fireworks business. They have been involved in fireworks for the past 17 years and in that time have performed some truly stunning and breathtaking fireworks displays. It grew into a passion; a desire to entertain people.

“We love how it takes them back to a childlike state, even for just 5 minutes. Everyone forgets about the bills, the mortgage, their children’s arguments, the stresses of work and they become transfixed; lost and carefree in the moment.”

They perform fireworks displays all over Queensland and New South Wales, from birthday parties to fetes, fairs and festivals. Fireworks for Weddings are on the rise, with more brides wanting their own personalised piece of magic. To get photos in the album of the bride and groom standing in front of a beautifully crafted fireworks display seems to be every bride’s dream. Aerial Pyro-Tech performs more weddings than ever before and they believe it is a true delight to help make the wedding day that much more incredible!

Now let’s not forget New Year’s Eve, which is always a heightened thrill. A few of the locations Aerial Pyro-Tech have been involved are Maryborough, Harvey Bay, Aspley, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Melbourne and many locations in and around Brisbane. And not a year goes by where the crowds don’t scream for more!
