BIG CHANGES IN ALASKA EFFECTIVE ON THE FEBRUARY 9, 2012 CHARTING CYCLE
In November and December we put this message in the Chart Agent e-News Letter as an extra message and reminder of the major chart changes that impact Alaska due to the movement of the Anchorage VOR. Please help us get the word out to aviators on the chart changes… Safety first!
Effective on 2-9-2012, the Anchorage (ANC) VOR/DME will be shut down. The Anchorage (TED) VOR/DME will be in use. The VOR was relocated roughly 5 miles onto the Anchorage International Airport property. Therefore, it is vital to have all of the new charts in the Anchorage region to ensure the most current fix locations, procedures, and frequencies are used. This includes TPP, IFR Hi’s and Low’s, and Sectionals.
Please note: the Supplement Alaska will also have all new Anchorage VFR flow patterns effective for the February 9th edition. Be sure to check it out and help us spread the word!
