2nd annual EAC Memphis Indoor

500,000 sqft.

The Extreme Aerobatic Club will be putting on an Indoor Electric Fly In and Extreme Freestyle Championships. It will be held at the Pyramid Arena in Memphis, TN. The date is March 10th & 11th 2006. This event is a one of a kind event. We will be conducting an all day open fly in with a freestyle contest on Saturday for the half-time show. We will have 20 of the top pilots in the world competing for cash and prizes. The top five finishers from last years contest will have an automatic invite back for 2006. We are going to invite 10 pilots and we will have an open audition for the 5 remaining open spots on Saturday morning. This contest also has a very unique twist. All the pilots' identities will be hidden from the judges. This will be done to prevent any judging bios. We also have another first for the finals of the freestyle contest. The 10 finalist will all fly identical airplanes in the finals that we will provide. We will be playing music all day and have plenty of open flying. This is an AMA sanctioned event. Proof of AMA Insurance required. We will have open flying from 12PM to 10PM on Friday the 10th and Saturday the fly in starts at 9AM and goes until 10PM. We will have electricity available for charging. Bring your A/C Chargers.

Admission is $5 to get in the door. Any AMA member that wants to fly will be asked to pay an additional $15 landing fee and show a current AMA card. Children under 12 get in free.


Pelase let me know if you plan to attend so we can put together a pilot and frequency list.

Re: 2nd annual EAC Memphis Indoor

Here are a few quick facts about The Pyramid Arena:

  • This giant pyramid has more than a half million square feet of usable space inside.
  • With a footprint larger than six football fields, The Pyramid's base covers 360,000 square feet.
  • Seating capacity is approximately 21,000 for concerts and just over 20,000 for basketball.
  • Twenty-six lower level luxury suites are located on the plaza concourse.
  • Two additional suites are designed for disabled patron. Disabled seating is also available on all three levels of The Pyramid.
  • The Pyramid Gallery of Stars is an informal gathering area on the East Mezzanine, featuring super-size photos of the biggest stars in sports and entertainment. All of the photos were taken from past Pyramid events. The Gallery area also features additional restrooms and concessions.
  • The backstage areas include 10 dressing rooms, four locker rooms, a media work room, interview room, show production office and green room.
  • The giant center hung scoreboard has the latest state-of-the-art LED video display board technology. The entire system features full video production capabilities; four center-hung 12-foot by 10-foot replay boards and 24 concession stand monitors.
