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, @Jummivana, @Pieter2427, @simtom2, and @FactualGull1036
When: Friday, March 3 @ 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:
March 8 is International Women’s Day. March 8 is also the anniversary of Raymonde de Laroche of France becoming the first woman in the world to earn a pilot’s license. Every year, this anniversary is recognized as part of Women of Aviation Week, a time to celebrate the accomplishments of female pilots and encourage more women and girls to get involved in flight. For this week’s Fly-In, we will be flying across the French countryside to the town of Chalons. In 1909, Laroche flew her first flight at Chalons, the first known instance of a woman pilot flying an airplane.

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.
