[OFFICIAL] Community Fly-In Friday: Ireland

*** NOTE THE CHANGE TO THE START TIME. DUE TO THE RECENT SWITCH TO DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME FOR MOST OF NORTH AMERICA, THE COMMUNITY FLY-IN EVENTS WILL NOW START AT 1900Z, NOT 2000Z. WE WILL CHANGE BACK TO 2000Z IN NOVEMBER. ***


Why do they call it the Emerald Isle?

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, @Pieter1982NL, @simtom2, and @dTwotonemurphy

When: Friday, March 18 @ 1900Z for two hours.
2022-03-18T19:00:00Z
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:
