Chicago’s Scenic Route
Getting outta Midway can be an exercise in maneuvering flight, especially when taking off to the northeast. Stay low, stay tight, and try to enjoy the view.
Pilots around Lake Michigan know there’s a popular route down the lakeshore with the Chicago skyline just off the wingtip. This offers fantastic views of downtown Chicago and is a practical way to transit from eastern Wisconsin to anywhere southeast of Windy City. You might even have a reason to stop at Chicago Midway and get a really close look at that famous skyline.
