[OFFICIAL] Community Fly-in Event: Mount Everest

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.

Hosted by @Jummivana and @Pieter1982NL

With community guests @FlyingCookie650 and @aRk02380

Flight plan by @FlavorFlav365 via worldtour.flights

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.

Variable Setting

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.

I have a 4 day weekend! So I’ll be here for this one :slight_smile:


right before the final summit window of this season :slight_smile:

Edit, Cyclone Yaas is still active today so if you are very brave, use live weather lol


I think I’ll take the Vertigo for this one.

Took the Turbo Arrow IV on the ride, couldn’t keep up with the TBMs of course but since I skipped the T&G and the Everest ascent, I made it in time to Lukla and the destination :slight_smile:

Thanks for hosting and everyone flying with us!

My view on all of the everest flyers from a southern route deviation :wink:


Very fun flight :slight_smile: Glad I was able to keep up with the C208 Caravan

Coming into Lukla

Broke something after a rough landing :grimacing:

Starting the ascent



That was such a blast! The TBM was a handful to get to land properly on those short strips…

Thanks for the fun!!



@Coppersens Nice pics! I missed the event (drat!!), but I snagged the flight plan, so at least I can fly it by myself!

Can you PM me, I need a link to your user tags mod as I can’t find it, I’ve been having issues, and your profile is hidden so I can’t PM you… Please and thank you!

Sure, here’s the link for everyone.
There’s also a HowTo regarding hiding the “#12345” numeric suffixes that some players have and also how to highlight specific names in a different color (I usually add the hosts of group flights in there to find them more easily in the crowds):

Great screenshots everyone, well done! Really wish I could have attended today’s fly-in.

Really great screenshots, thanks for posting! Had a blast today. Thanks everyone who attended :smiley: Hope to see you again next week!


I missed the mass start thanks to being auto-directed to the wrong server…but I flew along behind. What an amazing route. VNKL was just nuts. Made Lukla seem easy.

Nice one, Ill try that one out for next event :slight_smile: Normally in game I just switch traffic names off. For the event its easier to see where all other players are, especially when flying a different airplane :slight_smile: Lots of players had a hard time getting the TBM on the ground nicely lol
