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.


I have noticed you have set the server as SE Asia. Is this server correct as a number of people have joined in the past on that server expecting to fly in multi-player only to find out it should be the North Europe server?
I fly in VR which can make any changes in settings once I’ve set up the flight a pain to get back to a usable frame rate.

Yes, SE Asia server is correct.

Thank you.

Welcome to Italy!

Any easy way to enter the flight plan on xbox? Thank you.

DeusCriolo - from what I understand, if you open the map and zoom to the starting airport you should be able to select a plane in the group and spawn at the same spot with their flight plan. SeedyL3205 - is this correct?
