Arctic Entry LIVE



The Anchorage ARTCC is proud to announce our upcoming LIVE event, Arctic Entry Live. We will gather at the Lakehood Seaplane Base, which is directly adjacent to the Anchorage International Airport (PANC) in August of 2017. The gathering will last two days, with live control on both of those days. Day one will consist of a Friday Night OPS event, while day two will be a cooperative event with one of our neighboring ARTCCs or FIRs.

This is not an exclusive event, we invite all members of VATUSA, VATCAN and VATSIM to join us. We will give all controllers in attendance the option of controlling within our airspace, up to their highest level of certification. We know Alaska is a long distance to travel just for a VATSIM event, so we have established the below website with information for various activities and adventures in the Anchorage area. We have also established a quick survey on the GENERAL INFORMATION link below and we ask that if you are interested in attending, please take a minute and fill it out.

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.
