Honolulu (vHCF) / How to fly VFR at Honolulu Intl (PHNL)
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:35:51 pm »
Aloha fellow island-junkies!

Many of you are not familiar with the published VFR arrival and departure routes at HNL airport. These routes are designed to allow the safe and efficient transitioning of VFR aircraft in and out of the bravo airspace and away from the masses of IFR and larger traffic.

Unlike SIDs and STARs, these procedures have only textual descriptions to aid the pilot in navigation along the route. These procedures are found in the Pacific Chart Supplement published by the FAA.  Unfortunately, the supplement cannot be found (to my knowledge) for free of charge. EDIT: Found it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/12zJDrpL3U9RW49KI2mR5vIl0otHiGwPx/view?usp=sharing

VATSIM pilots and controllers without a paid copy of the supplement must resort to using older versions of the procedure that were previously copied down.

FlyingInHawaii.com has published several resources for pilots planning to fly in Hawaii which includes two web pages dedicated to explaining the mandatory procedures at Honolulu. While their content is a few years old, the same procedures still exist, though they may be a few AIRACs out-of-date. For VATSIM purposes, these old procedures work just fine and are becoming standard within Honolulu CF.

Links to flyinginhawaii.com:

This first link does a decent job at explaining how these procedures work and visualizing the flows. http://flyinginhawaii.com/instructional-resources/vfr-departure-and-arrival-procedures-at-honolulu/

This second link contains the actual text descriptions of the procedures.  I will copy each procedure in this post later down the road, but you can always find them via this link.
http://flyinginhawaii.com/fih-resources/phnl-departure-and-arrival-procedures/

I recommend that you bookmark these links for future reference. However, for simplicity and conformity to VATSIM and HCF-specific procedures, please see the following information.

Departure Procedures

Honolulu has six departure procedures, four for East Ops and two for West Ops:

Runway 8s/4s


Shoreline Departure
Freeway Departure
Redhill Departure
Punchbowl Departure

Runway 22s/26R

Kona Departure
West Loch Departure

The VFR departure procedures are by PILOT REQUEST ONLY. Pilots requesting a departure procedure shall contact clearance delivery in the following manner:

“Honolulu Clearance, [aircraft model/callsign], information [ATIS letter], request [procedure name] departure.”

Example: “Honolulu Clearance, Twin Comanche 2894P, information Q, request Shoreline departure.”

ATC will issue a clearance like the following:

“Twin Comanche 2894P is cleared out of Honolulu bravo airspace via Shoreline departure, departure frequency [freq], squawk (code).”


When receiving clearance for a VFR departure procedure, pilots must follow the route as published in the textual description. These descriptions can be found via the Pacific Chart Supplement, Flying-in-Hawaii website, or by the descriptions below:
