Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event:
Friday, February 3 is the anniversary of the signing of the 1958 treaty that led to the Benelux Union, an economic and political alliance between Belgium , The Netherlands , and Luxembourg . The Benelux treaty was highly influential in the history of European politics in the latter half of the 20th Century and is seen as a predecessor to the EU. To mark the occasion, this week’s Friday Fly-In will see us visit all three countries from the Benelux Union, starting at Amsterdam then proceeding to The Hague, Delft, Rotterdam, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels, and finally a full-stop landing at Luxembourg. En route, we will also pass several famous landmarks including the Windmills at Kinderdijk and the Spa-Francorchamps F1 circuit.

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.
