November 18th 2020
To celebrate this year’s premier aerospace event on microTech, we’re launching a Free Fly event. From November 20 through December 2, you have the chance to try some of Star Citizen’s most iconic vehicles for free. All you have to do is to create an account, download the game and jump into the fun.
Here’s how it works:
During the promotion, anyone can explore Star Citizen’s incredible Persistent Universe for free. Even if you don’t own a Star Citizen Game Package, you can try it for free and fly to the Expo in style, as we’re providing every account with an Origin 100i starter ship as a loaner for the time of the IAE 2950.
Starting on November 20 (4pm UTC), each day a different ship manufacturer will take over one of the expo halls for 48 hours. There’s something new to see every day, and nearly everything on display is available to test-fly for free!
Check out the schedule below to plan your test flights. We’ve also created an IAE 2950 FAQ on Spectrum, where we answer questions about the show, including where to go and how to take part in the Free Fly event.
