04.12 FLIGHT DETAILS

The group will take off from Noi Bai International Airport (VVNB), departing on a southerly heading toward Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi. After touring the Hanoi area, we will turn southeast and fly along the Red River Delta, one of the most densely-populated agricultural areas on the planet. We will emerge in the Gulf of Tonkin and then fly along the coastline on a north-easterly heading before arriving at the majestic Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finally, we will land at Cat Bi International Airport (VVCI) in the Hai Phong area.

PLANNING

Starting airport is at VVNB. Please load your aircraft 15 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

MULTIPLAYER SETTINGS

Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.

Variable Setting

COMMUNICATION

To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.

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.

FLIGHT PLAN

We will be using an XCub, but any GA plane with 110-120 kts cruise speed is acceptable.

A .PLN file is provided by the following link: Dec 4 Community Fly-In - Vietnam.pln (4.6 KB)

  1. Download the flight plan to a easy-to-remember location
  2. Open MSFS

Im hoping to join you today, it will be my first community flight. Do i need to set a time or will it somehow know we are all flying together? Thanks.

Just set your multiplayer setting to “All Players”, and your multiplayer server to North Europe (you can do this by clicking on your avatar in the top right corner of the flight setup page. If you forget to do this before starting a flight, you can do it from the Esc pause menu.)

Hi everyone. I’ll join the flight tonight but I’m also using Discord for the first time. From the MSFS Discord server, what do I have to do to join a voice channel ? I see none, only Important-info, server-rules, and faq. Am I missing something ?
Thx

Edit : also there is no “North Europe” server in MSFS ? It’s either West or Central Europe.

Will also be joining - thanks for organizing.

How much fuel to bring?

me too, same problem.
I have it almost a month, no change. other groups are fine.

Hey guys I had the same issue for a long time.
somewhere in the channels you are allowed to access there is a link to a terms of use page. Once you go through that the rest of the channels will open up for you.
