Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event:


April 15, 2022 is the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner RMS Titanic. The tragic story of this famous ship has been a subject of fascination for millions of people for over a century. To mark the occasion, this week’s Community Fly-In will include some famous sites in the UK associated with the history of the Titanic. We will begin the flight in Belfast, where the Titanic was built and which is now home to the Titanic Belfast museum. We will then cross the Irish Sea and make our way to Southampton, the port where the Titanic departed on its ill-fated transatlantic voyage

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.


here is some freeware scenery that I have created - custom models and textures, which in my opinion compliments the default scenery very well, and gives an impression of what modern day Belfast is like (just in case anyone is interested, and they have missed it):


Thank u for the scenery looks great

For those on Xbox who want to manually recreate the flight plan here are the nav points in order:

  1. Belfast City EGAC (Airport)
  2. Samson & Goliath Belfast (Landmark)
  3. Titanic Belfast (Landmark)
  4. Valley AB EGOV (Airport)
  5. Caernarfon Castle (Landmark)
  6. Cardiff EGFF (Airport)

The cruising altitude in the flight plan is 17,500ft. Is that the intended altitude?


I reckon a cruising altitude between 2000-4000 ft will be more appropriate to see the beauty of the landmarks.

I agree. There are a couple of legs that are 30 minutes long. We could ascend to a cruising altitude of 13.5k or 17.5k for those. The first one is between point 3 and point 4. The second is between point 5 and point 6.
