Skymagic, Grucci deliver record-breaking PyroDrone show in RAK

RAS AL KHAIMAH, January 2, 2020

Leading international drone light show company Skymagic, commissioned by Fireworks by Grucci, recently delivered a record-breaking firework drone show performance for Ras Al Khaimah 2020 New Year's Eve celebration.

Marjan Island more officially known as 'Ras Al Khaimah' is renowned for hosting large-scale celebratory events for the nation and world to see. This was the second time Fireworks by Grucci had invited Skymagic to collaborate to deliver a stunning series of light shows combining both pyrotechnics and the newly innovated PyroDrone performance technology, said a statement from the company.

Skymagic and Fireworks by Grucci showcased a synchronised swarm of 196 PyroDrones launched high into the night sky for all of Marjan Island to see. The visual extravaganza broke a world record for the 'Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Launching Fireworks Simultaneously', it added.

PyroDrones are a new generation of drones conceived by Fireworks by Grucci and developed through a collaborative effort between Grucci and Skymagic.

The celebration was visible from over 1 km away, allowing the entire Island to view the mesmerising show, it said.

Patrick O'Mahony, creative director, Skymagic, said: “It has been quite a journey and we are delighted with the end result. And a Guinness World Record! It is important to keep innovating and what better people to do that with than Phil Grucci and all at Fireworks by Grucci. It has been a huge team effort and we look forward to many more collaborations together.”

Chiew Soon Hooi, live operations director, Skymagic, said: “This has been a challenging but ultimately rewarding project. From a live perspective, the introduction of pyrotechnics on the drones throws up a unique set of fresh challenges, all of which the Skymagic and Grucci team overcame.”

Phil Grucci, CEO, Fireworks by Grucci, said: “It has been a great pleasure to combine the unique talents of both the Skymagic and our team to bring this Guinness World Record to reality."

"I look forward to many other opportunities to do with this team,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
