Circumstances in 2020 didn't seem right to be landing our usual April 1st foolery on our members and whilst 2021 is still not better for some...its time to have a positive outlook on life and crack a smile once and again. Of course a years gap meant something special had to be conjured up ;) For those that missed it, users accessing the site before midday were greeted by this screen April 1st login Clicking on any of the options took you here, s

    Fly UK Staff Position Changes

    We would like to announce some changes within the Fly UK Staff Team that has taken place over the previous few weeks.  Firstly, Ron and Ross have switched roles within the Training Academy and Events team. Due to work commitments, Ron's time for Fly UK has sadly become limited, however he remains in the staff team as TA staff. As a result, Ross Elliot has taken over as head of the department. Secondly, on the events team, we welcome Sean Walters-Smith. As well as real world ATC knowledge, Sean will support organising our events schedule as we focus more time within the TA on new projects

    MSFS Livery updates

    After some months battling with poor mapping, we are finally able to release the Boeing 747-8i livery pack in interim form for MSFS. Some of the normal livery features remain an issue such as the main title so this has been worked around for now as an interim release. Additionally the A320 Neo Fly UK Crystal has been upgraded to v2 and 4K textures. As one of the earlier liveries completed, some panel gap issues existed and a greater  understanding of MSFS painting is now known. As result this has been overhauled. Baked in registration has been removed however at the present point in ti

    New Year, New Tours

    We know our members, especially those that have progressed through our ranks, like to discover and explore new locations with our tours while enjoying flying to airports that our main schedules don't offer.

    Members update & end of year message

    As I sat trying to think what to write as part of the traditional end of year update and message to members and staff, I found myself somewhat stumped as to what to stay. The year has been far from normal, the Fly UK and the wider Flight Sim community has come a long way during 2020 but somehow pales into significance against a back drop of real-world turmoil. So I think I simply wish to say a thankyou to all the members and staff that have not only held this community together during these testing times but strengthened it beyond anything I thought was possible.

    The Fly UK Blog has launched

    . The Fly UK Blog is now live, our new platform to keep you up to date and connected with the flight sim community. Older members may recall our quarterly “Skyways” magazine, a well-received publication issued four times a year, however a very time-consuming task to produce and often with news becoming outdated by the time it was completed. Sadly, the project became unsustainable however we’ve always wanted to find a way to engage with the flight simulation community in a manageable way over and above our news channels and community discussion platforms including the Forum and Discord, hence

  28. After 15 years simming, I myself recently took my first steps on VATSIM so can appreciate how daunting it may be to some, but it is a rewarding experience. Pressing that Push to Talk button on frequency for the fist time was the biggest hurdle, preparation is the key but with support of fellow staff and members the experience is made far easier. This is why along with an invite from VATSIM Scandinavia, we announced our Training Academy programme for members wishing to take their first steps or build confidence on their journey to online flying last week, the full PR can be found here Week o
