Pilots navigate the sky using a route plotted with beacons and waypoints. The waypoints are geographic coordinates usually marked with five-letter, capitalized words that help pilots and air traffic controllers stay on course.

The unique things about waypoints, and probably the most interesting to a non-pilot, are the names themselves. This blog series will attempt to share all the best waypoints found in the FAA National Flight Data Center, but if you know of any interesting or funny ones, feel free to tweet us at @EnvoyAirCareers using the hashtag #EnvoyWaypoints.

Welcome to the second course of #EnvoyWaypoints where we’re cooking up nothing but food-related waypoints — Hope you’re hungry!

Click on the maps to see the waypoints’ exact location! Enjoy!

Either you love it or you hate it, but seafood can be like a literary masterpiece or a Bach composition; unique, multi-faceted and potent. There’s good reason why people from the coast of the Carolinas on down to the deltas of Louisiana and over to the Pacific love their local seafood, so let’s pay some homage to all things fishy and funky.
