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.
Hosted by @SeedyL3205, @Jummivana, @Pieter2427, and @simtom2
When: Friday, March 10 @ 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:
Located on the outskirts of Geneva near the border between Switzerland and France, CERN is the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the most influential scientific organizations in the world. On March 12, 1989, British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee published a proposal for a new method for CERN researchers to share the vast amounts of information required for their work. This proposal later became known as the World Wide Web, one of the most transformative advances in human communication ever created. In recognition of the web’s anniversary, this week’s fly-in will be a beautiful flight in the shadow of the Swiss Alps en route to Geneva and CERN.
Since we’ll be in the area, we couldn’t resist ending the flight at Courchevel (LFLJ) where we’re sure to see some epic landings (or attempted landings ) from the community. Does anyone dare try to land an Antonov An-225 at LFLJ?

We will be starting at LSZR. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the runway in preparation for departure.
Recommended aircraft: Cirrus SR22, Beechcraft Bonanza, Diamond DA62, or any other plane of your choice that can maintain a cruise speed of approximately 150-160 knots. Bragging rights will be awarded to anyone who successfully lands the Antonov An-225 at Courchevel.
Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.

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.
