Cross The Bering



Join the Anchorage ARTCC and DAL Control for our international Cross the Bering event on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. The event will begin at 2100 EDT (1700 AKDT) and run 5 hours in length. The routing will be from Anchorage (PANC) to Anadyr (UHMA).

Anadyr is a small city that serves as the administrative center for the Chukotka region, Russia. As a port town it is also the closest city of population to its eastern neighbor of Alaska. In the last few years Anadyr has seen a revitalization that is slowly transforming the city into a vibrant and cultured destination. No Visa required, so load up on caviar and vodka because customs officials have the day off.

A NOTE ABOUT TIME. The event takes place on Sunday, May 15th from 0100-0600 Zulu. This is because of the time/date change necessary for the pilots and controllers in Russia. DAL Control (Russian) controllers will only be staffed from 0200-0600 Zulu because of the time zone issue.

Valdez Fly-In



Come join the Anchorage ARTCC on Saturday March 19th for our Valdez fly-in event. Located about 90NM east of Anchorage International, Valdez (PAVD) is one of the most challenging airports in Alaska, so come test your IFR skills with us from 1800-2200 Zulu. Its one way in, one way out, so dont be surprised if a little holding is involved.

Valdez is a small town and was put on the map as the terminus of the Trans Alaska Pipeline. Here, oil is piped from the north slope of Alaska and loaded onto tanker ships, then transported out to various oil refineries. During the construction of the 800 mile pipeline, Valdez airport became a bustling destination necessitating a control tower. For this event, we will reopen the control tower to help things move smoothly.

All inbound IFR aircraft, plan on executing the full procedure (NO RADAR VECTORS) LDA/DME H or G approach. A published hold exists at the OLLEO intersection on both of these approaches, please be familiar because you may need to hold here for sequencing.

All outbound IFR aircraft, plan the JMAAL3.NAKED departure procedure.
