The latest Microsoft Flight Simulator is finally here among us. Enjoy your first ride in the SoCal area with ATC coverage at LAX and San Diego plus satellites so that you can also explore the surroundings on VFR flights. ATC coverage will be from 2359 to 0400z (1700-2100p).

Cannot wait to see this. I have a feeling it is going to be an absolute madhouse!

Just a thought...  with the Asobo simconnect bug rendering any simconnect apps (including the connection to vPilot) essentially inoperable, you might expect a million questions from pilots that end up with crappy framerates not knowing that MSFS has an unresolved bug....  May want to have an alias ready....

Hoping the bug gets resolved before the event.  But if not.... "Brace for impact!"  :)

Ended up being a non-event really due to this bug. Not the best launch day but we all got to hangout and relax which was a nice change of pace.
