Orcas Island Fly-In
2023 Annual Fly-In at the Port of Orcas!
Join us August 4th – 6th for the EAA Annual Fly-in!
The annual Orcas Island Fly-In will be held Friday through Sunday, August 4
through 6, 2023 at the Eastsound Airport. Sponsored by the local Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 937. Pilots fly in from all around the Pacific Northwest and Canada filling up the field with a wide variety of aircraft, from homebuilts to warbirds. The Fly-in will also offer commemorative t-shirts and ball caps.
In addition, the volunteers from Orcas Island Fire and Rescue will be serving their Pancake Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Station 21 across the street from the airport.
The Fly-In is a fundraiser for the local EAA Chapter which is an international nonprofit organization that promotes aviation-related education and interests. Our Chapter also sponsors the Young Eagles Program which provides free airplane rides to young people ages 8 to 17 and of course, the Fly-In.
No fees will be charged for aircraft camping or tie downs during the Fly-In weekend.
