Sunday, February 12 is the birthday of Charles Darwin, a date recognized internationally as “Darwin Day”. To celebrate Darwin’s contributions to science and naturalism, we will be visiting the Galapagos Islands, retracing part of the famous voyage of the HMS Beagle. The Galapagos archipelago is a site of immense biological diversity. Carefully observing the plant and animal life in this unique ecosystem led directly to Darwin chronicling his observations in his seminal 1859 publication “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection”, one of the foundational documents of modern biology.

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.
