[OFFICIAL] Community Fly-in Event: New Zealand

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, @Pieter1982NL, @SeedyL3205, and Local Guide @zkdos!

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.


It’s time to head back to New Zealand with our favorite IRL ATR pilot @zkdos! Enjoy this guided tour around the beautiful Marlborough Sounds at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, that visits two fantastic addon airports for MSFS. Set your departure time to sunrise, and add a high level of cloud for best results! More information: https://worldtour.flights/flightplans/324

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.

Hi Great flight but alone… :frowning_face_with_open_mouth: i don’t understand i follow the flight plan but nobody do it.

Thanks for the screenies, zkdos. I enjoyed the flight, although I couldn’t manage to get onto the Discord server for the chat. But it was great flying with a bunch of other pilots, and the scenery was simply gorgeous.


Hi @Yofloruse, you need to go to your Flight Conditions screen prior to a multiplayer event and ensure that under Multiplayer, you have ‘All Players’ selected.

Under your profile photo at the top right hand corner of the main screen, you also will need to click that and ensure you are on the correct server. Most MSFS community events get held on the North Europe server.

Thanks for your answer.

Thee problem in this flight seems the pilot didn’t follow the flight plan was proposed or it was wrong.
In the biginning i see all other players but after take off they at the opposite direction of thee flight plan.

Sounds like you may have had a different flight plan loaded to everyone else? I was leading the group with the flight plan file uploaded to this thread and all other participants successfully followed along.

Hopefully you’ll have better luck next time, @SeedyL3205 usually starts the streams by explaining the process of loading the flight plan before we all head off :+1:
