This is a new weekly event created by VATUSA which is similar to their FNO (Friday Night Operations) and they are kicking off The Mondays with Hawaii.

Jan 23: Hawaiian Getaway :: 2300z - 0300z
HCF's first sponsored event of the year.

For any controllers who can be available, please email me at

HCF will be hosting its FNO this coming Friday, starting 1700 PST (0100z). Having ZAK up at least 3 hours prior the event to space the inbounds to HCF will be greatly appreciated.

Please let me know via email if you're able to open ZAK for an hour or two to arrange the arrivals from the west coast. Unfortunately we don't have any Oceanic rated controllers in our roster which makes this a rather difficult situation. We're expecting more than 30 planes from Delta VA alone, much more from individual and other groups. You can reach me at rlara@hcfartcc.org

We will appreciate your help. Thanks!
