'''The Ultimate MP Fly-In''' will be a multiplayer event hosted in conjunction with [[FSweekend 2014]] (November 1st-2nd) and taking place in the Iberian Peninsula.

This 48-hour event, originally proposed by [http://forum.flightgear.org/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=13520 METAL], will feature a variety of scenarios to appeal to a big variety of players – from pilots going for absolute realism to casual flyers. It will also be an occasion to welcome new players to the FlightGear world.

== Mini-events ==
During the Fly-In several themed events (mini games) will be held. The games can take place at any time during the 48-hour period; slots can be reserved by posting on [http://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=23033 this forum thread] and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

The following table lists all confirmed mini-events so far:

== Controlled airports ==
Several airports will be manned to provide a realistic environment; check the exact times on [http://flightgear-atc.alwaysdata.net/V4/index.php5 Lenny's website].

Voice communication (held exclusively via Mumble, server: <tt>mumble.allfex.org</tt>) is preferred; text chat will be offered as a backup service.

We kindly ask pilots flying there to follow these guidelines to make this experience enjoyable for everyone.
* You must not start on a runway; start FlightGear, taxi to the apron and connect to the multiplayer servers only at that point.
* You must request appropriate clearances (be authorized by ATC) to taxi, takeoff, land at an airport and you will be expected to follow them promptly.
* You will be expected to communicate using at least basic ICAO phraseology - see the [[ATC phraseology]] and the [[ATC Tutorial]] wiki pages.
* You must be able to taxi, takeoff, land, maintain an assigned heading/speed/altitude.
* Please follow [[ATC best practices]].
