Routing from Argentina to Alaska over 3 days
Friday 19th June - Sunday 21st June 2015
On Friday we'll be flying our 747 simulator from Buenos Aries up the Western coast of South America for a night stop in Colombia. On Saturday we'll continue the journey in our 737 simulator spending the day hopping around the islands of the Caribbean. Sunday takes us back to our 747 simulator as we continue North through the United States finally coming to a rest in Alaska.
The route has been chosen by one of our real world pilots to try and visit airfields which are a challenge due to terrain, weather, facilities, etc. He may have picked some minor technical issues for the crew to deal with en-route too so be sure to keep an eye on the stream - who knows what may happen and when!
We'll be flying all the sectors on VATSIM so you're welcome to come and fly alongside, or if you're from the areas where we're going to provide us some ATC!
For those who are unable to join us in the skies we'll be streaming the whole event on twitch so pop in, have a watch and chat with us!
