ETOPS setup depends on the plane, and sometimes there are more restrictions

than just how many minutes you need to be able to fly. However, there is an

option to disable ETOPS for the current flight, then you can release the flight

as usual.

Thanks Peter

I am using the pmdg 777 200 L/R

 

Would like to use this option rather disabling it, for realism

The warnings are fine.  I'm assuming you have a Hawaiian airport for an alternate?  You're getting the warnings because there are MSA's above 10000' around those airports.

It depends on the Airline. Air New Zealand has longer ETOPS to fly the pacific for example. Lots of info regarding this on the net and in the PFPX forum @ Aerosoft

There are two MORA grids close to PHNL you need to be aware of in case you need to descend due to a decompression.  One over the island of Hawaii at 16,100', and one over Maui at 12,400'.  The warning is just pointing out that you may be below some terrain in this area.  To see MORA grids click the far right button in the PFPX map.
