Welcome to Sky Blue Radio’s VFR Sundays Flight Operations

The Blue Crew is flying into 2019!

August 26, 2018 was the 6th Anniversary of VFR Sundays, and we are still going strong. We are happy to see the Blue Crew and New Pilots get together every weekend.  After 6 years of flying, we have completed our world tour! We’ve seen a lot of fantastic sights and some interesting weather.  There will be many more adventures and discoveries in the future as the SBR VFR Sundays continue with new sights, flights and missions!

Update! All flights will be flown on JoinFS, unless otherwise noted. JoinFS is a nice stable platform. Get it HERE! ===> http://pmem.uk/joinfs/  Fly with us WEEKLY on SBR’s VFR Sundays!  (Find us chatting LIVE in Discord’s SkyBlueRadio channels ‘Pilot’s Lounge’ or ‘VFR Sundays’.) Connect JoinFS to “The Blue Crew” in the HUBS list. Drop in anytime. SQUAWK us!  We might fly solo, try some non FAA approved maneuvers, or maybe even catch some of The Blue Crew during some of our impromptu fly-ins!  (*There are exceptions as required.)

We have changed our primary voice chat server to Discord which is available here. ===> https://discordapp.com/  Where a quick registration of your e-mail will get you going. We recommend installing the Discord App and then join the SkyBlueRadio Channel via this invite.  ===>  https://discord.gg/rpMmPWj  This allows the group to chat live and coordinate our flight traffic when no ATC is online.  

Flights flown on the VATSIM network will be noted. You can register for free at http://www.vatsim.net/  and get set up.

Flights flown on the IVAO network will be noted. When in Euro Zones, IVAO is here at https://ivao.aero/  to register for free with their network.
