I assume Flightaware.com is wrong on this - but can anyone explain this one?

The HA 717s are around ten years old and are currently in the process of getting heavy checks done, I assume MIA is where HA contracted out to do this type of work. I can imagine for the next few months HA 717s will be coming in and out. N478HA was there a few weeks ago.

There have been several threads on this over the past year. HA cycles their 717's through MIA for heavy checks.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

Yep, HA does send there 717's to MIA. I have seen them a few times I have also seen Spanair 717s at MIA aswell. MIA gets a lot of different planes its pretty interesting since besides for being the passenger and cargo gateway it is, MIA has large MX services too.

How do they fly them from Hawaii to MIA? Or more specifically, from Hawaii to mainland? I know that's there's been the whole process of getting these planes to Hawaii initially which involved removing all seats and installing extra fuel tanks. Are they doing the same thing now?

It's the same way they've always flown DC-9s and 717s between the mainland and Hawaii: They trade seats for extra fuel tanks that fit through the cabin door.

Short of hiring a Matson freighter and strapping the plane aboard, there's no other way to get it across 2,500 miles of ocean.

To moderator - can you please either delete this thread (as it has been covered multiple times, including the thread just last month!) or at least lock it down?

For all who are curious, the linked thread on Reply 4 will go into details about the extra fuel tanks used for delivery.

Thanks.

OK.....with the permission of the powers to be, I would like to ask a semi related question...Is the flying of these planes to heavy maintenance bases covered in the pilots contract, or is there some sort of side agreement? They could not have know where the work was to be done, and the distance needed to be flown when the contract was hammered out how ever many years ago. How many pilots go on the trip. How many stops are needed. and do they then fly a finished one back home?

Can't tell you HA specifics but ferry flights are generally done by line pilots. Most likely reserve line holders. In general, pilot contracts are very specific about only pilots on the seniority list flying company aircraft (management flying is also covered and allowed with limitations) They are flown under FAR Part 91 so contractual duty limits are the only ones the company has to worry about. I don't know anything HA's contractual limitations.
