[Official] Community Fly-In Friday: Princess Juliana

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.

Hosted by @SeedyL3205 and @simtom2

When: Friday, November 25 @ 2000Z 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:


There are a few locations around the world that are must-visit locations on every avgeek’s bucket list: Oshkosh, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Kitty Hawk…and a tiny Dutch island in the Caribbean. Sint Maarten’s Maho Beach is famously located directly adjacent to Princess Juliana International Airport (TNCM), and the area is renowned among fans of aviation for being one of the best spots on the entire planet to watch landing jetliners as they pass less than 100 feet (30m) above the beach. Due to Maho’s popularity with plane spotters, most restaurants and bars at the beach display the arrival information of incoming flights. This week’s fly-in will see our group complete a full-stop landing at Princess Juliana (recently updated in Microsoft Flight Simulator’s 40th Anniversary Edition) as we island hop across the eastern Caribbean. Our flight plan will also include a touch & go at Saba, home of the shortest commercial runway in the world!

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.

Awesome Fly-In!

Took off in a Baron…but decided at our first touch and go to switch to a DHC2 (great choice)

En route to our next touch and go and wait…didn’t Pieter say he couldn’t make it?

Anyway, let’s try TNCS! Had an awesome time watching the overruns and flips. I tried…and long story short, I flipped upside down and slewed right back up. Then, another flip. Think I need some lessons!

At TFFJ. Hit a tree and flipped again! I think my plane had too much sugar.

I was later joined by Flyingcookie :slight_smile:

Rubbed it off, and landed at TNCM without incident, parked my plane on the beach, and watched the DHC2s, Twin Otters, A320s, Spruce Geese, and Darkstar land.

Wow! What a way to end the week! Think it is time to fly back home to Ham Land.
