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.

April 22 is Earth Day. In recognition of this day, we have invited a special VIP guest to join us on our Community Fly-In Friday livestream. Gregory Davis is a commercial pilot, aerospace engineer, and President & Interim CEO of Eviation, makers of an upcoming all-electric commuter plane known as Alice. Greg will be here to answer questions from the community and share his expertise about the future of environmentally-sustainable aviation.
We just published a Community Spotlight article about Greg. You can read it here:
Gregory also recently appeared on national television in the United States during a segment of NBC’s Today Show. You can watch the clip below:
This week’s group flight will be in the beautiful Pacific Northwest region, taking off from British Columbia, Canada and flying to Washington, USA. We will depart from Abbottsford, perform a touch & go at Arlington Municipal Airport (home of Eviation), fly over the Microsoft Flight Simulator office in Redmond, past downtown Seattle, then make our way to KHQM for our final 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.
