Group Flights for the Month Ahead
We're off to the Leeward Islands, the Hawaiian Islands, the Norwegian Fjords, the White Mountain National Forest, and Slovakia over the coming weeks!
After taking a break from planning group flights in recent months, I’ve filled the schedule over the next month with some varied globe-trotting group flights around the world.
Several members have pitched in with their own events in recent weeks (full guidance is given in the #events-info channel, and in the Codex) - I would heartily encourage others to do the same. If you have a favourite part of the world that you know a little about, it always makes for an entertaining couple of hours leading a merry band on a magical mystery tour.
We’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

Organising Group Flights
Everybody is welcome to organise their own group flights - take advantage of the huge community we have built at VirtualFlight.Online.
If you are organising a group flight (see the Group Flights page in the codex for lots of help, tips and guidance), remember to:
Create a topic in the #events-info channel in Discord along with the Event - with everything people will need to know about the flight. Remember to include:
The route description (include flight plan files if you want)
The departure date and time in UTC
The multiplayer server everybody should use
Remember that many users will be flying slower aircraft - so plan routes accordingly - with the slowest pilot able to complete the route inside a couple of hours (in the past we have generally aimed for 150 nm routes).
Try to include a comfort break half-way through the flight.
Remember that group flights don’t need to be on Sunday nights! We have members all over the world - feel free to organise your own group flights at times that suit YOU.
