RE: Prop-Hopping In Paradise: KOA-OGG-KOA

What a breath of fresh air to read this great and unique report!
Thank you for the idea of flying the commuter airlines within Hawaii. I would definitely consider
it as an alternative to a heli ride!

I wonder if you didn't have a car how would one get to the airport? Is it easy?
Great pictures!
