[Official] Community Fly-In Friday: German Cities and Rotterdam

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, and @Pieter2427

When: Friday, September 9 @ 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:


Senior Community Manager @Jummivana recently returned from a business trip to Cologne, Germany where she attended gamescom. As part of this trip, she met up with several MSFS players, including our long-time Friday Fly-In co-host @Pieter2427. Later, they flew a real plane in Pieter’s home town of Rotterdam. For this week’s Community Fly-In Friday, we will visit several locations from Jayne’s recent trip, including both Cologne and Rotterdam. Additional destinations on this flight plan will showcase some of the new scenery from City Update 1: Dortmund and Dusseldorf. We will also be making a touch & go landing at Bielefeld – if it even exists. :wink:

first time ever I joined a flyin and it was actually fun, rather crowded still in SU10 beta, had a tough time to keep up with the crowd in my TBM, so switched to the Hornet for the last minutes until I quit at Rotterdam


I participated in the community fly-in after a long time. As much as I love to fly with the community, the SE Server drops down the ping speed from 50 ms to 190+ ms.

Below is an example of what I see then:

Is there something that can be done about the speed or photogrammetry?
