Alaska Area Around Anchorage Hit by 7.0 Earthquake

A magnitude 7.0 Earthquake struck Anchorage, Alaska (PANC) at 08:30 AKST, this morning, 30 November, 2018. Details are continuing to develop as of this writing, although a "ground stop" NOTAM has been issues by the FAA for operations into the airport. Details continue to be at a minimum as damage assessment continues. The process is complicated both by remote and shortened daylight.

WestWind management is aware and serving as a conduit to pilots who may be effected by this information. We will update as the situation unfolds.

Information has been posted on the forum to update what is happening on the ground in Anchorage. Infrastructure damage with the onset of winter is limiting movement by vehicle in the area. See the link in the above title for details. WestWind is responding with heavy airlift of supplies from all western hubs into Anchorage, Ted Stevens International Airport (PANC). Please report your airlift efforts on the forum.

Christmas in Tahiti -- 2018 Please Join In the Party

There is an online event sponsored by New Zealand and Australia called "Across the Ditch - 15" that is Scheduled for December 1 and 2, the weekend, for all VATSIM pilots. Please understand that the event may be a day earlier due to the international Date Line. Pay attention to the time conversion for understanding your specific local time. This event was organized by Nick Johnson, a WestWind Pilot. If you want to participate, check out the information on the forum under "Cross the Ditch 15 [Dec 2 1700z - Dec 3 1300z"

With the beginning of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer in the Southern hemisphere, we once again are approaching the Holidays and want to begin the process of notifying all WestWind Pilots that Christmas In Tahiti will begin Thanksgiving Day and Last through the New Year.

Christmas in Tahiti has all WestWind Pilots and members gathering in Tahiti, in French Polynesia (NTAA) to celebrate the holiday season with good fellowship. The scenery department has scenery for Kens Retirement Home located on the south side of the ismas. There are water runways for each to bring an amphibious aircraft from the major airport which can handle SWB aircraft and has ample ramp space.

We would invite all pilots to attend as schedules permit. This is an annual event and all are invited to fly or jump-seat if you can't fly out. Please plan on attending this event.

The forum link has been updated with the event information package for the event. Information is available on the forum. Come and join in on the celebration.
