*** 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.
When: Friday, March 18 @ 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:
Thursday, March 17 in Saint Patrick’s Day, a celebration of Irish culture not only in Ireland itself but also by people of Irish heritage around the world. To mark the occasion (albeit one day late), we are pleased to welcome back @dTwotonemurphy to the channel to co-host the livestream as we tour the Emerald Isle in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

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.
