[Official] Community Fly-In Thursday: Breaking the Sound Barrier

Note day change! This week’s Community Fly-In is on Thursday, not Friday!

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

Hosted by @SeedyL3205, @Pieter2427 and @simtom2

When: Thursday, October 13 @ 1900Z 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 with other members of the community.

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


October 14, 2022 is the 75th anniversary of USAF Captain (later General) Chuck Yeager becoming the first pilot to fly faster than the speed of sound in the Bell X-1 “Glamorous Glennis”. To mark this important milestone from aviation history, this week’s Community Fly-In will have our group fly fast military jets from the United States Air Force Academy (KAFF) in Colorado to Groom Lake (KXTA) in Nevada (aka “Area 51”) then onwards to Edwards Air Force Base (KEDW) in California, site of Yeager’s history-making flight in 1947. Finally, we will conclude the fly-in with a tour of the Los Angeles area before making our full-stop landing at LAX.

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.


The Fly-In Friday is now Thursday…is illogical…

It’s a Fly Along - Thursday …
Or the Thursday - Fly Day…
Or Flown on - Thursday

Any of the above or permutations will be acceptable to my OCD …

Thank you over and out…
