[OFFICIAL] Community Fly-in Event: Sossusvlei Namib Desert

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

This flight plan was created by svennoJ on 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.


Airstrip hopping around the Namib desert, the NamibRand-Naturreservat in particular, visiting the stunning location of Sossusvlei.

This area is full of tourist lodges for good reason. Stunning mountain and desert views with a lot of variation. Fly between and over the mountain ridges while enjoying the varied colors of the desert. The route links 10 airfields together serving different lodges. Take your time to enjoy the landscape or see how quickly you can visit them all.

We may end on the second to last airport, FYWD, if out of time.


Recommended aircraft: Cub or 172. Any small GA aircraft.

We will be starting at WATO. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

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 can only see “Crash Damage”:

Hi no it’s in the “developer” bar at the top of your screen (disable crashes) :smirk:

Do we need to enable image ?

Disabling “Crash Damage” should do it! I would recommend disabling all sorts of failures as well.

This seems incorrect to me… Shouldn’t it be FYSS?

Yes little problem… :face_with_monocle:

Wow!!! What a gorgeous location in today’s fly-in. I had so much fun spotting those challenging strips while admiring the beauty of this desert. Great job picking the flight plan, and many thanks to the hosts for keeping us good company throughout the flight (very nice music selection too).


That was fun! Thanks all!


Bonus shots, on my way to meet the others at FYMH. If you’re thinking of completing that last leg of the flight plan, you will not regret it!


Love the photos, thanks for posting and participating :slight_smile:
