The good thing is the owner is a relatively sophisticated buyer, having owned and flown several airplanes himself thought the years. Including a Cessna 337 that he put 5000 hours on flying himself over the years. We have had the discussions about what airplanes and conditions would be acceptable for operations off of his island airport. He knows it it's not a nice day, good vfr with light winds, we will be taking the ferry to the mainland.

Thanks for the clarification.

I know its been a few years...but I was wondering how they get around the ability to land within 180 minutes on standby Instrument requirement. Using June winds it says we can go from OAK to HNL, but the OEI and decompress at ETP show we can make it to an airport with 200lbs on landing (decompress)...but the flight times are 3.5 hrs (OEI) and 4.1 (decom) to get there??

Hawaii includes Hilo. The flight time is less and the reserves are better than Honolulu. Also, you may need to adjust the parameters with your trip planning provider for things like for drift down altitude and SE cruise speed and altitude to make the numbers all work. We found they used canned 280kt TAS SIngle Engine and immediate descent to 10,000 feet for depressurization. These can be modified as the aircraft performance is far better than that.
