Rio de Janeiro as seen in Microsoft Flight Simulator
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.
When: Friday, April 8 @ 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 with other members of the community.
Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event:
For this week’s Community Fly-In, we had you, the players, vote on our destination country and flight plan. The votes have been counted, and the winning selection (by an overwhelming margin!) is a flight in Brazil from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro!
Additionally, we will have a PRIZE GIVEAWAY during this stream! Got Friends are donating three (3) of their Edgley Optica planes from the Marketplace to lucky viewers selected by random draw during this stream. This plane is available to all players on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming Services.

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.
