While researching the plane below I discovered that Aloha used it on ETOPS flights out of HNL for the South Pacific. How many ETOPS 732s did Aloha have? What other airlines operated 737-100s or -200s as ETOPS planes? Did these planes have extra fuel tanks?

I think Aloha was the only one that did ETOPS.


I Love HNL.............

One, N808AL. IIRC, it was certified ETOPS 120.

As far as I can tell, no one else had the -100 or -200 ETOPS certified.

Nope. Didn't need it. The farthest it flew non-stop is HNL-CXI, which is 1155nm. The 737-200A had a range up to 2300nm.

Since AQ terminated that route, N808AL has rejoined the inter-island fleet. When it was doing the ETOPS CXI run, it had the US, Hawai‘i, and Marshall Islands flags lined up above the aft pax windows.

Interesting to see an ETOPS B732. I had no idea this had existed.

I clicked on the c/n to see the previous operator and discovered how old CAAC could make a modern airliner look in 1992!

I imagine it was not ETOPS, but UA used to fly MIA-CCS with 737-200s.

When?

You're right, no need for ETOPS there.

This aircraft, owned by the owner of the Miami Dolphins, does some pretty long flights. He also has a BBJ at FLL.

Now this is fascinating!! I have flown on both of the "special" 737-200's in Aloha's fleet - N808AL and N823AL.

In visiting a friend in Hilo, I flew United to HNL and then transferred to Aloha. As a devoted a.netter, I always document the registration of the aircraft I'm going to fly in case the plane becomes "famous" for some reason. HNL-ITO was flown by N823AL - but in the standard livery, not the fabulous "old school" livery (unfortunately for me). I found it of further interest that 823 is my telephone prefix - and easy registry to remember.

ITO-HNL was flown by N808AL - again, another easy registry to remember, as that is the area code for the state of Hawai'i. Now I found out that this plane is an ETOPS certified plane...this is just too cool!!  cloudnine 

Thanks for letting me ramble on...

Very interesting. I had no idea a 200 series would have been ETOPS certified. Thanks for sharing.  Smile

Huizenga also has a Gulfstream and at least 2 helicopters...he actually helicopters into Dolphin games, there is a helipad in the Dolphin Stadium parking lot for this purpose! He's got a full blown air force...

Yeah his hangar is amazing. A friend of mine works there as a First Officer on the Boeings. They actually fly those and the Gulstreams a lot under the Victory Aviation charter certificate. He said one trip they flew the 200 from FLL-FCO. That is a really long way. The entertainment system is those planes are amazing. Probably some of the nicest interiors I have ever seen.

Was ETOPS certified. Not anymore. Last regular ETOPS flight for N808AL was back in 2003. The markings stayed on till 2004, but didn't fly ETOPS missions.

Thanks for the info. I never knew that.
So I sit here wondering how do you get a B737-200 ETOPS certified?
Yes OK you put in some decent nav equipement like an IRS and double GPS,
but what about the standby power system, the second fuel crossfeed valve
The ETOPS certified APU, the hyd system which is basically one tank on a -200.
It all sounds like a lot of investment for a single aircraft.
Dose anyone know what they actually did?
I would have thought it a lot cheaper to buy a B727 for the route which
would not need ETOPS cert!
