World Update XIII: Oceania is here! To celebrate the release, this week’s Community Fly-In will be an island-hopping tour in French Polynesia :french_polynesia:. Our flight plan will see us visit the stunningly beautiful islands of Tahiti and Bora Bora with their picturesque beaches :beach_umbrella: and famous floating cabana resorts. :hut: Be sure to download and install the free World Update from the in-sim Marketplace to best experience the scenery during this flight. We also suggest flying a float plane or amphib so you can land on the water. :slight_smile:

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.

Looking forward to this one. I have been enjoying the new update a lot!


Forgot to set the time correctly so I did a nighttime flight, enjoyed checking out the night sky though.

Since I can’t comment on the release notes… @N316TS Thanks for tagging me and letting me know about the Easter Island heads, I plan on checking them out today.




thanks for the enjoyable event :slight_smile:


I’m fairly new to the sim with only 5hrs flight time & no pilot training IRL. I caught up with this stream today & loved the scenery wanting to try it out as my first ever fight plan.

At first, after take off I ventured off course, soon correcting myself & maybe flying a little to high. Got a few screenshots, as I had to land mid journey at a touch down due to time IRL but planning on coming back to complete as I saved the plan.

Thank you for a great location & hope to see you at next week event live.


Thanks for this beautiful flight!
