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, 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.
You will start at Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu at Tribhuvan International Airport (VNKT) and fly east heading into the foothills of the jaw dropping Himalayas.
At the small village of Charikot you will turn south and make your way to your first stop: The short and grassy Ramechhap Airport (VNRC).
You will continue the flight east towards Manebhaniyang District where you will head north climbing along the mountainous path of the Harkapur Okhaldhunga road before landing at the perilously short dirt runway of Kangel Danda Airport (VNKL).
Continuing, the route will weave its way north through the steep valleys to the spectacular hand-crafted Lukla Airport (VNLK). This will be your third stop.
For the final leg you will leave Lukla Airport and quickly climb north following the valleys onto the path of the Khumbu Glacier until you reach Mount Everest’s incredible summit of 29,029 feet.
Once you have crested Everest’s peak, you will descend eastward, briefly following the path of the Chinese Kangshung Glacier before heading south into Nepal again until you reach your destination airport: Tumlingtar (VNTR).
Recommended aircraft: Daher TBM 930 or similar
We will be starting at VNKT. 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.

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.
