Honolulu International Airport Runway Question

Tue Jan 01, 2013 4:35 pm

I am a training for my PPL, and before we contact tower holding short of our departure runway, we always do a run-up. I was looking at a picture of the HNL Reef Runway, and don't see a run-up pad.

Is there one for that runway, or do they do it prior to crossing to the "island"?

Thanks! Hope everyone has had a happy new year

4R/22L and 4L/22R are the primary runways for GA operations, not the Reef Runway. In any case, GA run-ups at HNL are completed on the tarmac space on the South Ramp which is where all the GA facilities are located. After your run-up, you would contact HNL Ground Control for clearance/taxi instructions.

Hope this helps.

Some runways don't have run-up pads. I can think of numerous airports that don't. In that case, you just do your run up at the hold short line/in sequence or find some empty ramp space where you won't be prop blasting anything.
