World Update 16: Caribbean is available now! To celebrate the release, this week we’ll be taking a temporary pause from our Fly-In Friday World Tour for a one-off island-hopping flight over the beautiful Leeward Antilles.

Our flight will see us visit the “ABC Islands” of Aruba :aruba:, Bonaire :caribbean_netherlands:, and Curaçao :curacao:. We’ll be flying over several of the new hand-crafted POIs created for World Update 16, so make sure you install this free package from the in-sim Marketplace prior to the flight.

We will be starting at TNCA. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the runway in preparation for departure.


Recommended aircraft: Any aircraft of your choice with a cruise speed of about 120 knots. We suggest taking an aircraft equipped with floats such as the CubCrafters X Cub or de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver so you can try a water landing, but this is not strictly necessary.


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

Variable Setting
Server SE Asia
Multiplayer All Players
Live traffic As preferred
Weather Few Clouds
Time of Day Daytime

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.


Kind of surprised you only have this flight setup @SeedyL3205 I say that because I’m sure the next one for the world travel will be more than just two hours, so why not setup the long flight as well so us fellow aviators have a choice one or both, just my thoughts anyways.

For some reason I had issues earlier flying Caribbean but this time it worked
