Re: Hawaii Airports and Aviation Thread - 2019

Both Ohana's ATR42-500s and Island Air's DHC8-100s that used to land in Princeville are dual wheel aircraft. At the low gross weights flown on the short interisland route both aircraft are below the weight bearing capacity of the runway. Both the aircraft and adequacy of the airport facility are no...

Re: Hawaii Airports and Aviation Thread - 2019

Why doesn't Ohana (by Hawaiian) fly into Princeville with their ATR42-500s? The regional turboprop has the capability to use the short 3,560 ft. runway although its 60 ft. width might make for a tight turning radius. One would think the number of luxury resorts around Princeville would more than fi...
