I've been looking at the "Chicago skyline tour" up the lakeshore at 1,500 feet to stay under the Bravo. I'd be in a single-engine, fixed gear plane. It's a popular route, so I assume there are lots of old pros here who have done it a time or two. Does that route offer any options at all to glide to an emergency landing from 1500 when the engine quits? Ditching in Lake Michigan with fixed gear doesn't sound like a tempting option.
