We are a group of sim-pilots with varied experience of all ages. Some carry real-life pilot licenses, others only the dream of flying. Microsoft Flightsim 2020 is the tool we use to connect and have great experiences flying the South American continent together. There is no proficiency requirement. We do require you to adhere to normal social etiquette. All people from all walks of life are welcome as long as you have a passion for flying. We fly small bush planes that generally go around a 100 kts, but the specifics are up to you. We started out in the south of Panama, and the journey will end once we reach Cape Horn. There will be plenty of great sites to see. South America is mostly an undiscovered continent for most simmers since older sim-generations didn’t portray it well.
The group flights are scheduled for Tuesday (weekly) at 1900 GMT on the South East Asia server (better performance and stability) and are usually about 150-180 nautical miles long. They take about 2.5 - 3h to complete, and we always pick up where we left off last week.
We enjoy playing games during the legs between airstrips, especially a game called C.R.A.S.H. We split into two teams and try to land at challenging off-fields. Every team-member that fails a landing or has to go around gets one point. By the end of the trip the team with the least points wins the golden cup, and the losing team wins the CRASH title.
Arrive a bit early if you need help with setting up for the event.
Communication is done via Discord, in the Event Flight voice channel.

This is the last leg before this event takes a break for the summer. We will be back 17th of August.
