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.
This flight plan was created by @SummerBobcat888
When: Friday, 1900Z, 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.
Join us this week as we do a group flight with the creator of Bushtalk Radio - an awesome mod to listen to audio recordings about POIs along your flight! We are excited to fly around a few of the islands in Indonesia and learn about its history. He says,
“I chose this flight plan as the area is beautiful and full of interesting tidbits along the way - first we’ll fly over Komodo Island (home of the Komodo dragon) and then make our climb to Mount Tambora and learn a bit about the 1815 eruption and how it changed weather patterns around the world.”
Recommended aircraft: One of the quicker propeller planes (140KTAS+), with a good climb rate as we’ll need to go above 9000ft at one point to clear Mount Tambora, such as the Beechcraft King Air 350i
We will be starting at WATO. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.
Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.
|Live traffic||As desired|
|Time of Day||5:30 AM|
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.
