Sláinte! It’s said that everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, so this Friday we’ll be celebrating with a flight over the Emerald Isle co-hosted by our favorite Irish flight sim streamer, @dTwotonemurphy! Murph has created a beautiful flight plan for us along Ireland’s west coast, starting at Sligo and ending at Galway with a few touch & go landings en route. Murph also suggested that it would be great to experience this flight plan via helicopter, so for those rotary-wing enthusiasts among us, this is a perfect opportunity to showcase your skills in the Bell 407 or Guimbal Cabri G2!

It is advised in this flight to turn off both aircraft collisions and terrain collisions. If you do crash, you can use “slew” mode to join the pack. If the pack will be too scattered before the first stop, we will use slew on a defined point to regroup.
To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.
This is meant to be a fun and informal flight. Everybody is welcome, no matter the amount of experience.
