So sorry to miss it,but a few issues here are making things a tad challenging.

Possible date for the next Alpine magic of Fri 22nd Sept (19:00ish) if people could let me know availability. Currently I’m free, but that is subject to change, I’ll shout if it does.

Alpine Magic confirmed for Friday 27th Oct, starting at Salzburg (LOWS) at 19:00 BST. The first half will take in some wider valleys with a number of touch and go’s enroute, before heading into the mountains around Sion for a tight and twisty second half. Expected finish ~21:30. UK317 JOINFS Hub and UK317/WAA Teamspeam for comms. Our typical cruise is 360-420kts, all welcome, any fast jet should do.

Is this open to Xbox too ? I’m thinking of picking up the Hawk soo n

Think you have to be on PC as use JoinFS to share planes position and teamspeak/discord for cons but @Hails013 or @Magic6420 might know work around

Join FS is PC only, but we could try using msfs multiplayer again hopefully they’ve improved it over the last couple of years

Details for Friday:
TLDR - Start at LFMN 19:30GMT(UTC)

The final Alpine Magic of 2023 (don’t worry, we’ll be back in the new year). The plan for the first half of the session is a low level transit departing Nice (LFMN) at 19:30 winding through the French and Italian Alps to Aosta (LIMW) with a touch and go on the way at Turin (LIMF). SkyVector link in the alpine-chat channel on Discord.

The second half of the session will be planned on a tactical basis (make it up as we go along) featuring more dynimic flying at low level in the narrow valleys of southern Switzerland. The aim will be to give Santa a run for his money in the number of chimneys damaged en-route. All pilots are to ensure red filters are fitted to their landing lights so we can pass on the blame. See you on Friday!
