We will be hosting an Official Fly-in alongside a group of community members (you!) on Twitch. This is an open event, free to all who would like to fly along with us and available to pilots of all skill levels. The goal is to have a great time, explore new locations of the world, and make new friends. This event is open to pilots on both the PC and Xbox platforms.

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.


To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.


This is meant to be a fun and informal flight. Everybody is welcome, no matter the amount of experience.

Hello, Seedy! I was one of the lucky pilots who won the drawing on Australia Day. My twitch handle is f_clef_bass. How should I collect the prize? Thank you!

Hello @EATTL,

Please check your Twitch private messages. @Jummivana was going to collect your Gamertag and then pass it on to the fine folks from the Virtual Roulettes who are generously donating the prizes from yesterday’s event.

Congratulations again on your win! :slight_smile:
