There will also be a Discord event channel open for those who want to voice chat with other members of the community.

For our Halloween flight this year, we will be flying over the Transylvania region of Romania, mythical home of the vampire Dracula in the classic novel by Bram Stoker. Our flight plan will see us visit two historic locations which were said to inspire Stoker when he was picturing Dracula’s castle: Bran Castle and Poenari Castle.
For PC players, there is a freeware scenery addon for Bran Castle available here.

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.
