[GLIDERS] Sim Soaring Club - Weekly Group Flights

Hello glider pilots,

I would like to invite you to join our Sim Soaring Saturday group flights.
We are a friendly group of people, that like to keep it casual, so no need to be shy.

Our events will happen on the West Europe Server, during EU friendly times.

First flight will take place this Saturday. I hope to see you then :wave:

just adding my +1 for recommending the Sim Soaring Club. It means adding Discord to the extensive list of apps you need to know, but if you haven’t already then SSC is a good reason to do so.

There’s consistently a good turn-out for the SSC-Saturday multi-player soaring flights, with plenty of humor in the voice chat.

Here y’go, recorded by a group member on the SSC-Saturday task this weekend. We set a ‘task’ as a MSFS flightplan, and we all load the same weather so we’re flying the same air. It’s a friendly crowd:

200 km/h average. Wow. Never managed that IRL. Maybe it also says something about the MSFS weather, but just maybe :wink:
(But most likely about me as a pilot ;-))
Have fun.

Yeah I think it’s been true for a long time that we sim pilots tend to select gliding weather in the “awesome” category to guarantee a fun flight. We’re handicapped a bit with the rather poor thermal support in MSFS currently so most tasks are set in ridge lift, and MSFS (and all sims, I think) is very generous with ridge lift in mountainous areas where any ridge facing into wind will give lift regardless of what’s immediately upwind. It’ll probably settle down a bit as MSFS gets updated and the skills of the pilots improve but it’s already good fun in multiplayer.

This is important for group, I think; Both official gliders should have stronger adverse yaw requiring use of rudder for turning
