GV1201-2316N-Kalalau-Valley-Kauai-1400x9

 

On today's trip the last of our Hawaiian journeys we will be seeing the sites of Oahu and Kauai. These areas offer some of the best that Hawaii has to offer and will definitely make a impression on all that fly over it. I will leave the commentary for the flight. This should be a good one. I will be starting at noon and flying my MD530

Just a note I have added a stop at Dillingham airfield PHDH, this will be right before we head of to Kauai. Its about a 80 mile trip to the next airport so if we want we can hop into a plane for that leg here. Also I have been having VAS issues with the Oahu scenery and have to lower my settings and I need this stop to replenish my memory for the trip to Kauai. I also found I have to do this at Ford Island too. I wont put this in the plan as it is only a mile away from a way point.

Notice ! Bill, whoever you may be. If you're reading this please reply.

Of course, all are welcomed in our sessions but some basic form of communication is necessary.

If unable to use the voice features of Teamspeak, text chat is available.

If you need help just let us know.. Happy to get something going for you.
