We will be hosting an Official Fly-in alongside a group of community members (you!) on Twitch. This is an open event, free to those who would like to fly along with us and available for all skill levels. The goal is to have a great time, explore new locations of the world, and make new friends.
When: Friday, 2000Z, for two hours.
Where: The Official Twitch Channel of MSFS
There will also be a Discord event channel open for those who want to voice chat.
Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event.
For the next flight we will try a IFR flight!
Details: From Seattle (KSEA) to Wrangell (PAWG) via the J523/502 airways. The approach into PAWG RWY 10 is an RNAV approach available here and is already incorporated in the flight plan albeit without altitude restrictions.
We’ll be flying along the east coast with a nice view over the mountains from British Columbia before turning to the RNAV approach between the mountains.
Tom will be using the Working Title CJ4, and Pieter will be flying the A320 FBW mod. This is a 710 NM route. Please pick an appropriate IFR aircraft to make this route around/under 2 hours.
We will be starting at KSEA. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.
We will be using either Few Clouds or clear skies.
Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.
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.
