The Flying Finns

Flight sims, glider lessons and saunas - it has to be Mosquito Meeting 2001

On Thursday a Finnish Army training camp in Räyskälä will be playing host to Mosquito Meeting 2001, a non-profit four day convention for flight sim fanatics run by Finland's Virtual Pilots society. As well as online and LAN-based gaming, the event will also include a number of outdoors activities, a sauna, and even the chance to get glider lessons at a nearby airfield! This is the seventh annual Mosquito Meeting, with previous events supported by the Finnish Air Force and both real life aviators and many of the country's most hardcore gamers attending. If you love World War II flight sims (WarBirds or Aces High in particular) and fancy something a little different from your traditional LAN party, check out the Mosquito Meeting website. Foreigners are welcome as well as native Finns, and most people there apparently speak English. Sounds a blast, but watch out for the mosquitos!
