Northern Migration XVII
1800-2200 CDT / 2300-0300z

ZMP's 17th Annual Northern Migration. VATSIM controllers from across the country convene in the Twin Cities for a weekend of live VATSIM controlling. After a two-year break of in-person gathering due to COVID-19, we are looking forward to a fantastic Northern Migration XVII!

Covering all of Minnesota, and most of Wisconsin, the Dakotas, parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Michigan, Minneapolis Center is geographically the largest ARTCC in the USA. Our major focus airport for this event is Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP), but we we also provide top-down coverage and some local TRACON coverage for destinations such as OMA, DSM, GRB, DLH, FAR, GFK, MOT, BIS, GRB, as well as several VFR towers.

Expect staffing to ramp up beginning Friday, July 22. The main event (where we will have dedicated full facility staffing) will commence 2300Z on July 23 until traffic dies off late in the evening.
