Welcome to Anchorage (PANC) Home of vNWA Cargo Operations



PANC Hub Management Open





The PANC Hub is the primary base for all Cargo Operations at Virtual Northwest Airlines.  Our fleet and route system for our cargo operations here at vNWA are based off of both real world NWA Cargo fleet & routes over the years as well as Virtual fleet & routes.  This offers our Pilots more of a choice of destinations as well as a different aircraft that NWA may have not operated in the real world but maybe they would have if they were still in existence as we are portraying to a certain extent in the Virtual World.  Having the base in Anchorage gives us the gateway to Asia where NWA was the leader in Cargo for all of Asia in there time as well as the Pacific.  Please feel free to fly these routes at anytime and let us know if you have any suggestions or comments about the Cargo Operations here in Anchorage by utilizing the Forums for the PANC Hub.

Virtual Northwest Airlines is pleased to announce that we will be opening up our PANC Hub to Pilots for Cargo Operations beginning April 1st 2017.  We are looking forward to expanding our Operations here at Virtual Northwest with staffing our operations at Anchorage with full time pilots.  Pilots assigned to the PANC Hub will still be able to fly any route we have in our system beside Cargo Routes but would hope the main focus would be on operating Cargo Routes.  We have a total of 25 aircraft that make up the PANC Fleet with 10 different types of aircraft.  We currently have over 75 Cargo Routes operated just in and out of PANC with several more operated out of the other current 5 hubs.  Our Cargo routes are based off of "Real World" Cargo Routes that NWA flew as well as "Virtual Routes" we have added as well.  
Current pilots wishing to transfer to the PANC Hub are encouraged to do so by sending an email to  We encourage all Pilots as well to let your Pilot friend at other Cargo VA's that we have opened up our PANC Hub now for assigned pilots for our Cargo Operations. 

We are looking forward to adding PANC as a staffed hub for us here at vNWA as well as being a revenue making operation for us.  Please stay tuned for additional announcements in the following week as we plan to "Staff It Up"  April 1st, 2017 at PANC.
