[OFFICIAL] Weekly Dev Update Screenshot Challenge: No Time To Fly

Hi everyone,

Our screenshot challenge is now available to enter via Twitter with #MSFSchallenge!

It’s time for another screenshot challenge! The idea is to collectively explore different parts of the world together - areas that may be very familiar to you or perhaps a new place you have never flown before. Feel free to find others to fly with to capture the challenge, or go solo!

Last week’s winner from Germany, Switzerland, and Austria: @bsbrunacci

This Week’s Challenge

No Time To Die, the latest film featuring Ian Fleming’s Agent 007, opens on September 30 in the UK and October 8 in North America. The James Bond series has always showcased exotic locales from all over the world, whether 007 finds himself exchanging banter with Moneypenny at MI6 headquarters in London, parachuting off a cliff in the Austrian Alps, driving a tank through the streets of Moscow, or drinking vodka martinis – shaken, not stirred – at luxury hotels and casinos in Monaco, Venice, and Macau.

In this screenshot challenge, use Microsoft Flight Simulator to capture some of 007’s most iconic points of interest. If you need inspiration, you can refer to this list of James Bond filming locations.

If you have screenshot challenge ideas for the future, please DM me!


  1. Any time of day
  2. Any type of weather
  3. Code of Conduct appropriate liveries

  5. Up to 10 entries (screenshots) allowed

The rest is fair game! Use your creativity! We will pick the top 11 shots. 1 will be featured as the main photo of the next dev update and the other 10 will be featured in the community section.

You may also add a watermark or username to your image if you wish.
