Our Fly Out this Saturday with EAA240 is to Tangier Island, VA (KTGI). The island is located in the Chesapeake Bay just below the MD/VA border. It is known for its historic value, unique way of life AND dialect. The experience is like, “Leaving your country without your passport.”
The island can be explored quite easily on foot or by rented golf cart (with an optional guide) for little cost. (The latter is ideal.) Meet at the EAA240 hangar at 9:30am; Wheels-Up 10:00am. The 1-hour flight should provide enough time to explore the island before our 12:00pm lunch reservation at Fisherman’s Corner Restaurant. The soft shell crab sandwich is excellent!
There is a $10 aircraft landing fee. Depending on the pilot’s route, the Delmarva Wetlands or a route near to OC, MD will provide scenic views. (Restricted airspace is noted on the Sectional for this area)
