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 :jack_o_lantern:, so we thought it fitting to visit a location with a dubious historical association with witchcraft. :broom: 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.

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.


It was a nice flight, of course, I left the weather live which added to the spooky factor since it did seem rather foggy. Quiet fitting I may add.

Looking forward to this one. :).

I’m ready!


I think I might fly the witch as well!!! :grinning:

Thank you for a spooky Fly-In.

I’ve been thankful to have had the free time to join the last few.

Jayne’s harmonizing fail of the Jayne Stall Horn was classic.

I’m totally curious about these changes for January 2024. Only ~2.5 months wait, gah!


Having missed a couple of fly-ins in a row, it was great to fly with all of you again. Thanks everyone!



Awesome! If you want in the future, send these events to jt@skyblueradio.com and we’ll add it on our website, discord and shoot out on our mobile apps.
