VF049 VFR Exploring the Rhein, Germany


Thursday 9th September 2021, at 8pm BST (1900Z)

Flight Plan

A low, slow flight along the Rhein from EDDL Dusseldorf to EDFM Mannheim – exploring the cities of Cologne, Bonn, Koblenz and Frankfurt along the way.


  • EDDL Dusseldorf


  • EDFM Mannheim

Suggested Aircraft

Anything capable of flying at 120 knots or so. The group will be encouraged to circle and wait for slower aircraft.

Voice Communications

Voice communication will be provided via the Virtual Flight Online Discord Server:



Connect to the “WEST EUROPE” server in MSFS (click your Microsoft avatar within the configuration screens to see the server choice).

If you would like to see other people taking part in the flight live in LittleNavMap, you might be interested in the Transmitter application, which achieves exactly that.

Further Information

We are an inclusive, relaxed group – we recognise that some may not have flown online before, so encourage mentoring from more experienced pilots as much as possible.

Although take-off is scheduled for 8pm BST (1900 UTC), it may be worth arriving early to setup your aircraft, and/or to help others set-up theirs. Use the streaming functionality in Discord!
