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, @simtom2, and @JoeyBolo77
When: Friday, May 5 @ 1800Z 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:
At the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, Mexican forces successfully defended the hilltop forts of Loreto and Guadalupe against the attacking French army during the Second French Intervention in Mexico. The anniversary of this battle is recognized annually in Pueblo, and the date, Cinco de Mayo, has also become a celebration of Mexican heritage in the United States and other countries. For this week’s Community Fly-In, we will be touring parts of Mexico: departing from Pueblo, flying over the capital of Mexico City, then making our way westbound towards Guadalajara/Zapopan for a full stop landing.

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.
