Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event:
This week our Community Fly-In falls is both on Friday the 13th and in October , so we thought it fitting to visit a location with a dubious historical association with witchcraft. During 1692 and 1693, the town of Salem, Massachusetts found itself in a mass frenzy over alleged cases of witchcraft and demonic influence. In one of the darker episodes from American history that has since become a cautionary tale against mob mentality, over 200 people were accused of witchcraft.
In more recent times, Salem has attempted to revitalize its image and capitalize on its checkered association with witchcraft. Witch-related tourism is a major economic driver in Salem, and the local high school sports team is known as “The Witches”. The popular 1960s sitcom Bewitched shot a few special episodes in the town, and the talking cat from the 1990s show Sabrina the Teenage Witch was named Salem.
Our fly-in will depart from Bangor, Maine and fly to Providence, Rhode Island. In addition to Salem, we will also visit Portland and Boston en route.

|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.
