Orcas Island Fly-In

FLY-IN Cancelled for 2021   – Due to new Covid cases we will not be having the annual fly-in sponsored by our local EAA Chapter.   

At one point in 2014,  we had 122 or 153 airplanes on the ground, but the EAA folks were too busy to keep count all day. Here’s a panoramic from Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 and two guests that should probably be together in a children’s movie.

The Fly-In is held every year on the first FULL weekend in August at the Eastsound Airport.  Guests arriving by airplane are welcome to camp ‘under the wing’ in our grass tie-down area.  We have a shower and toilets nearby.  If you would like a more refined stay, our quaint village is within walking distance and has many fine dining and lodging establishments.

The EAA 937 builds a complete agenda, with arrangements for food and entertainment.  Tie-down fees are waived during the Fly-In.
