Anchorage ARTCC is proud to announce, in celebration of 10 Years of VATSIM service, the Get Your Berings 2011 event being held with VATSIM JPN. Coming October 16th, 2011 from 0100z to 1100z (15-Oct 1600AST-0200AST), we will feature a grueling 7+ hour flight from Tokyo (RJAA) Japan to Anchorage Alaska (PANC). Full staffing is expected for the duration of your flight, including two Oceanic sectors with non-radar procedures (Tokyo and Anchorage Radio(s)). Bring your big iron and patience, and you'll have an event to remember!
