Dateline Dash - Westbound



VATJPN and the Anchorage ARTCC would like to present DATELINE DASH, Westbound 2016. Travel forward in time and cross the international dateline in this unique event. These routes are frequently flown by both cargo and passenger operators to help link Japan and Alaska to the rest of the world.

Depart from either Anchorage (PANC) or Fairbanks (PAFA) and arrive Tokyo Narita(RJAA) or Tokyo Haneda (RJTT). The Narita airport is located outside of the city of Tokyo and is the primary location for cargo operations. Haneda is in the heart of Tokyo and primarily serves as a convenient airport for passenger operations. The distance covered is roughly 2900 nautical miles, which should equate to a six-hour flight, if utilizing a jet aircraft.

The event begins Saturday November 5th, 2016 at 2300 Zulu. Depart between 2300 and 0100 Zulu and ATC will be provided for the duration of your flight. In local time, this would be 1500 AKST, 1900 EST on Saturday the 5th in the US. These local times are based on daylight savings before the time change occurs, giving you an extra hour of sleep:). For those beginning on the western side of the dateline (Asia), the event begins Sunday the 6th at 0800 JST.
