Airport: Kahului, Maui,(OGG
Best Approach Side: Left (no Kona winds)
As you approach the Hawaiian Island you will see the imposing Mt. Haleakala and on a clear day Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa on the Big Island. As you fly over Maui through the itsmus (valley) and exit the south side of the island you will catch a glimpse of the town of Kihei, Molokini (a semicircular reef good for snorkeling) and again part of the Big Island once the Haleakala doesn’t longer block your view. As the aircraft performs a U-turn for final alignment with the runway (on the north side of the island) you will see the islands of Lanai and Molokai and even the eastern tip Oahu to the West as well as the western mountains of Maui.
Airport: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX
Best Approach Side: Right (no Santa Ana winds)
You will catch a glimpse of Palm Springs, Big Bear and San Bernardino Mountains followed by downtown LA
and if you are lucky the Hollywood sign. Of course if you don’t like smog sit on the left.
