When: Friday, November 4 @ 1900Z for two hours.

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:


November 3 is Panama’s :panama: national day, commemorating the 1903 separation from Colombia and the founding of Panama as a sovereign nation. To mark the occasion, Friday’s Fly-In will be a flight over the Isthmus of Panama, culminating with a tour of Panama City and the Panama Canal.

There is an optional Panama City scenery addon from Orbx available from the Marketplace. This addon is not required to participate in this flight, but it will enhance the experience.

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.
