Welcoming 22.7 | KLM E175 Flyout
Take the helm of the skies as an AFKLM Airmen today!
The long awaited rework of all time is finally released and we are all here for it. What better way to celebrate the arrival of such an anticipated update, than with an AFKLM event? We welcome one and all to an E175 Flyout from our HUB, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. For this event we have featured the routes flown in real life with the KLM Cityhopper E175. Airmen may choose their route from the list below. We are extremely happy to welcome all of you onboard to join us in this fantastic flyout. In this flyout, you will see some of our AFKLM pilots and we hope to see you. Departure will be on the 15th of October 2022 at 1700z. See you there!
Are you an AFKLM Airmen? Then this is for you! We will organise plenty group flights during the day in our Group Flights forum and host a 1 month Discord Classic giveaway in the evening to mark the end of this grand event and the start of many E175 flights in KLM colours (finally!) ;). Stay tuned for more!

At AFKLM, we strive for realism and professionalism in all aspects. It is what fuels us. A list of destinations have been prepared which is exclusively flown to and from by the E175 KLM Cityhopper. The Cityhopper network is diverse and really brings out the beauty of the entire region. The destinations have been listed in an ascending order based on the distance from the HUB.
|Destination Airport ICAO||Destination City||Flight Time||3D|
|LFSB||Basel Mulhouse Freiburg||0hr 50min|
|ENTO||Oslo Sandefjord||1hr 20min|
🟢 The list has been updated to reflect 3D airports released in 22.7.
Airport ICAO highlighted denotes an airport has just been released and you should try it out! Kudos to the Airport Editors.
Everyone is asked to spawn in between 1630-1700z and are asked to push back in an orderly fashion. You may choose when to push back but please avoid doing it at exactly 1700z and rather 10-30mins later. Of course, if you need to get moving you are welcome to pushback earlier we just want to spread them out. We strongly recommend airmen to utilise the A-Apron and B Pier for added realism.
Additionally, any airport charts for the destination, you must provide yourself.
In-Depth Flight Details
Flight details must be provided by yourself. We strongly recommend to use websites such as FPLTOIF, Simbrief etc in order to facilitate a realistic flight. If you are new to these resources, we will be happy to help and show you around.
Main communication will be on the thread.
The below chart depicts the layout of the A Aprons and B Pier which are used in real life by the E-Jet’s at EHAM.
Please file a SID in your FPL to get out of the airport without any conflicts
On the day of event, we will brief the airmen on the runway usage and taxi routes
Follow all instructions given by IFATC
Avoid contact with any other aircraft
Please be patient
Current Runway Usage
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, EHAM, was officially founded in 1920, but the first plane landed there on 19th September 1916. The airfield was first used as a military base, but when civil aviation became more and more popular and is now home to one of our core airlines, KLM.
This event will be streamed live on the Infinite Flight YouTube Channel. You can watch it below!
