This event is open to pilots on both the PC and Xbox platforms.

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:

FLIGHT DETAILS

With the Autumn months all up on us, we’ll be exploring a few interesting Fall-themed locations in the US states of Indiana and Kentucky. Pilots on the PC platform can download the .pln file for this flight here:

For Xbox pilots, I will spend the first few minutes of the stream quickly explaining how you can create your own flight plan using the World Map. Alternatively, you can simply fly along with the group without using a pre-defined flight plan.

AIRCRAFT

Recommended aircraft: Cessna 172, XCub, Pipistrel Virus, or similar.

We will be starting at 79KY. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

MULTIPLAYER SETTINGS

Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.

Variable Setting
Server North Europe
Multiplayer All Players
Live traffic As preferred
Weather Few Clouds
Time of Day Day time

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.

COMMUNICATION

To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.

LET’S FLY

This is meant to be a fun and informal flight. Everybody is welcome, no matter the amount of experience.

Note: I’ve updated the above post with a new .pln file and different suggested aircraft. The overall flight plan hasn’t changed significantly, but I changed a few airports and the direction of the flight.

They have issues with the stream, just follow it on twitch once it starts.

But ■■■■, all these generic twin jet aircraft on their tails that are spawned instead of the Junkers Ju-52 are SO annoying :frowning:

The levitating turboprops you could at least get rid of by installing a free addon. The Ju-52 you only can get rid of by buying the addon…

R44 (or whatever its called) is a free mod? good to know that i guess

Not online yet?

Xbox players can only see real type of Planes can use in this Moment

Nop

No, but the Eurocopter is. In most cases that’s what the people are actually flying.
