Status: Description: This is the 2017 Christmas Spirit Excursion here at Alaska Adventures. We are delivering numerous special crates from the North Pole “Eielson (PAEI)” that was left there by a mysterious man in red! These crates are going to forty two different locations throughout the heart of Alaska for delivery to families that are in need at this time.
AKA was stated directly on the instructions to be the VA responsible for delivering to these forty two locations in this 16 leg excursion. So 16 legs, 42 stops. There are stop-over locations in each leg: some with one, two and some with even three stops to maximize our effectiveness and efficiency to get this task done before Christmas. Watch the flight legs closely as we don’t want to mess up the route or the stop-over locations.
So get out there and fly!! This the season that families need us most and are counting on us. And Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and more importantly Peace, Hope and Happiness to everyone at Alaska Adventures and your families.
