24DEC / 1200Z: MASSIVE Christmas Eve Event: The North Pole Hopping!

Ah, Christmas Eve. One of the best days of the year. No school, no work, just a day to relax. Why not fly on Christmas Eve though? Especially if it is in Alaska, where Santa’s Workshop is rumored to be! This event is going to begin at Fairbanks, have a stopover/join point at Ancorage, and then continue on to our final destination of Jeaneau. From Fairbanks to Alaska, we will fly over Denaili national park, which will have amazing views, and from Anchorage to Jeaneu, we will fly over glaciers. This is an event you cannot miss!

Airport codes: Fairbanks: PAFA. Anchorage: PANC Juneau: PAJN


Some more notes about this event:

  • You may choose wether to start in Fairbanks or join us in Anchorage, or wether to leave us in Anchorage.

  • We will likely get in from Fairbanks at 12:00Z-1300Z

  • Departure from ANC will likely be between 13:00Z - 14:00Z depending on when everyone gets on the ground

  • If you are joining us in ANC, please spawn at 12:30Z

  • We are on the expert server so please be professional. I am not responsible for any violations in this event

Thats’s it for the notes, so how about sign ups? **Comment down below the post what gate you want at Fairbanks, and wether you will be going all they way through Jeaneu, or stopping at Anchorage. If you want a gate just at Anchorage, you will get one, and you will also receive an arrival gate at Jeanue. **

I suggest copying it over and pasting it into something like a google doc to save.

Hey, first off thanks very much for taking it. Unfortunately, I made a mistake, and I was told that I couldn’t post this until it is 30 days out. I will still put you down for GTS at Fairbanks wherever I save my draft!

Yeah, I’ll add you to my ATC events schedule document for December.

61 days until December 24th, so I’m not sure if this’ll stay open for long.

You’re welcome! Any specific spawn in time at fairbanks?

Might’ve been easier to just create a PM with only yourself in it so you wouldn’t have to make a google doc.
