FLIGHT DETAILS

Among airline pilots, few approaches are more legendary than the (in)famous checkerboard approach into Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport. Nicknamed the “Kai Tak Heart Attack” due to the precision it demanded of pilots to make turns as low as 150 feet AGL over one of the most densely-populated areas of the planet, landing at Kai Tak was a true test of an aviator’s experience and skill. Although the real world Kai Tak has been closed since 1998, this fan-favorite airport has recently returned to Microsoft Flight Simulator as part of the 40th Anniversary Edition update. Join us for our Fly-In Friday this week as we tour the Guangdong/Canton region of China with stops in Macau SAR, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and finally a full-stop landing at Kai Tak.

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.
