[OFFICIAL] Community Fly-in this Thursday - Tour de Alps

This event generally takes place on Fridays, but this week it is moved to Thursday due to other conflicts.

We will be hosting an Official Fly-in alongside a group of community members (you!) on Twitch. This is an open event, free to those who would like to fly along with us and available for all skill levels. The goal is to have a great time, explore new locations of the world, and make new friends.

Flight plans will be brought to you by @Pieter1982NL and your regular hosts will be @simtom2 and @Jummivana.

When: Thursday, 1800Z, 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.

Please see below for details on the upcoming Fly-In Event on September 3rd.


We will be taking off from LFLS for a VFR flight through the French alps in the evening. We will land at LFNC for a short refuelling break if necessary.

The second part of the route will continue through the Alps to Torino, Italy (LIMF)

This will be a full VFR flight, although an AP option is available with the provided flight plan.

Altitude is at onces own discretion. A full obstacle free height over the whole route is 8000 ft

If you would like to participate, please comment below letting us know if you’ll be there!


The total flight time should be a little over 2 hours.

Any GA plane is allowed. We will try too keep the pack together, but this might be challenging given the great diversity which is possible currently.

Although we will use the “All player” setting, using live weather is greatly encouraged. If conditions deteriorate during flight we will switch to broken clouds or high clouds.

Please load your aircraft 15 minutes prior to take off at LFLS and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

Around 5 minutes prior to take off begin taxiing to the active runway (will be announced). We will do a parallel start and after that start departing to the east.


We will use live weather. However, if conditions are unfavorable, we will select a weather preset with the same UTC time.


Please adhere to the following settings so you can see everyone / be seen by everyone.

Variable Setting
Server West Europe
Multiplayer All
Live traffic As desired
Weather Live


To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.

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.

How does this work with discord? What do I have to do so that I can become a member there?

Thanks…looking forward to this even

Just make an account there and you’re ready to go.

I already have an account. Do I have to do something about verification?

You use the link above to join the msfs server. There you simply read the instructions, they clearly say what to do.

Hi, I will try to join the event, first time for me to jump into Multiplayer conditions, does any one already know the event start time in any case, thanks in advance ?

Sorry guys, just read better at the moment

Would love to join in the official community fly-in events but the time zone is a bit unfriendly for those of us in Asia time zones. However saying that, still enjoy downloading the flight plans and flying in my own time!

Never tried this with any sim before, so it should be fun!

I know where to set multiplayer, weather, air traffic, but where is the option for the western europe server? Never mind, I found it under my profile.

Hi there, I’ll try to be there, I’ll try the crossing with a 152 so… I’ll take my time…

Nice I will be there
