We are honored to be performing our pyrotechnic skydive for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats game, especially at such an amazing venue.

The University of Cincinnati Bearcats game vs. the East Carolina Pirates is sure to be an unforgettable night. The game will take place Thursday November 13th at Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals, in downtown Cincinnati. The UC football games have been moved to Paul Brown Stadium for the 2014 year while their own Nippert Stadium is under renovation and expansion. The game starts at 7 p.m., and during the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will be performing their famous pyrotechnic skydive. The night pyro is their most requested show and often causes UFO sightings in the surrounding areas. The show will be viewable on the scoreboard with live air-to-ground video, so spectators can experience the show on a whole new level. The show consists of four TSA fireworks-licensed Team Fastrax demonstrators. They typically exit the aircraft at 5,000 to 4,500 feet above the ground. Pyro is ignited under canopy all the way to 500 feet then the demonstrators land in the target area.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our pyrotechnic skydive for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats game, especially at such an amazing venue. The stadium is sure to be packed with Bearcat fans, and will be a night to remember. ”

According to the Bearcats’ website, the team will be playing in its 127th season in 2014. The Bearcats’ program dates to 1885 and is one of the 10 oldest in major college football. UC has won a league title in four of the last six seasons and played in a bowl game in seven of the last eight years. The Bearcats have won 76 games over the last seven years, the most among the current American Athletic Conference. UC’s .723 winning percentage since 2007 ranks among the Top-12 teams in the NCAA FBS.

Team Fastrax™ is sponsored by Selection.com®, a leading provider of criminal background checks and pre-employment screening services. They are the most ambitious professional skydiving team in the world. The parachute demonstration team has a roster of more than twenty-nine active members, with a culmination of more than 300,000 skydives. Team Fastrax™ has performed exhibition skydives all over the world for audiences large and small as a patriotic display or as a product promotion.
