Some of the thousands of planes and pilots who gather at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh every year
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, July 22 @ 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:
EAA AirVenture – the world’s largest air show, fly-in, and gathering of pilots – runs from July 25-31, and several members of the Microsoft Flight Simulator team will be there in-person! To recognize this colossal celebration of aviation, our Community Fly-In Friday will see us travel virtually to Oshkosh, Wisconson (KOSH), which for one week every year becomes the busiest airspace in the entire world.

|Time of Day
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.
