Shoutout goes to Bingdinger, who created the flight plan and will be able to explain some interesting things about the area.

We will be landing at each airstrip in the flight plan and a couple that are not mapped.

It is advised in this flight to turn off both aircraft collisions and terrain collisions. If you do crash, you can use the “slew” mode to join the pack.

This is event is open to everyone of all skill levels and is meant to be a fun event to meet other sim pilots.


This is going to be my first multiplayer event. Looking forward to it.


Glad to have you join! I’ve created a #how-to-join channel in the Discord to help you out. We’ll be 20-30+ sim pilots of various ages and experience.

Gonna be awesome. We will be flying by my house on this trip. Hope we don’t get in trouble for landing at the military training field…

Question: What should I do if I fall behind the pack and want to catch up with everyone? What should I do if I’m late for the event and get a late start?

Answer: You can slew your aircraft by hitting the “Y” key, then F4 tf you want to gain altitude, and num pad 8 to slew forward. Check your keyboards num lock if it doesn’t work.

Alternatively, just speak up in the voice channel and someone will give you the next airport’s ICAO code.

At each stop we will wait for everyone to catch up with the pack and land before proceeding together.

Why do we fly on the Southeast Asia server?

It’s proven itself to be very reliable for our group, and we have members from all over the planet… It’s literally on the other side of the globe from me, my ping to it is horribad, but it doesn’t seem to matte r because it’s buttery smooth for us all.

Many in our group are using the Caravan 208b mod and the Garmin 1000 mod.

Caravan 208b mod,

Garmin 1000 mod, Release: Working Title G1000 v0.3 ( compatible) - updated to v0.3.1 on 5 Oct!

It’s worth noting that the default Caravan has a bug which gives it “ghost spoilers” the real aircraft is not supposed to have. You’ll notice atrocious flight performance that will go away when you hit “retract spoilers”. This is fixed in the mod.

Some are experiencing a de-icing bug, Cessna C208 anti-ice switch bug
