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, May 27 @ 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.

Do you feel the need for speed? The Top Gun: Maverick expansion is available now as a free download from the in-sim Marketplace! To celebrate the release of this DLC and the new Top Gun film in cinemas, this week’s Community Fly-In Friday will see us flying F/A-18 Super Hornets departing from Miramar, performing a touch & go landing at Edwards AFB, flying through the Rainbow Canyon (aka Star Wars Canyon), then continuing on to a full stop landing at Las Vegas.

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.
