|Pyro air displays by Mark Jefferies. Approximately in June 2013, I started to design the concept and how to attach pyrotechnics to the wing tips of the Extra. EASA granted the approval some 18 months later. Firstly deciding upon which type of pyro to use, once chosen the burn time is important. Typically 55 – 60 seconds is achieved per device. Its a simple matter to add the appropriate devices for the display duration. The fireworks can be fired sequentially or individually depending upon needs.|
