For the guys living out there, are there any groups of you guys that rent a place together or? I've never lived in Hawaii but know all about high cost of living (currently in Baltimore/DC). I've tossed the idea around of applying and going out there once I finish my commercial and CFI but not sure how I would survive not knowing a soul out there.

After the "Maui Miracle", the owner made it mandatory that each and every flight operates with an SIC. They updated their manuals, and the FAA signed off on it. So all SIC time is counted at Mokulele.... if there's no FO, they can't operate Part 135.

That's how they are different from some of the other Part 135s; on Mokulele its mandatory whereas many 135s are still flying under the single pilot requirement with optional SIC.

If I'm not mistaken Mokulele CAN fly with just the Captain only if the Auto Pilot is working?

I'm curious too. This?

A National Transportation Safety Board investigation into the 2013 emergency landing of a Mokulele Airlines passenger plane on Piilani Highway on Maui has concluded that the incident was likely caused by damage to the plane's engine as a result of improper cleaning.
The probable cause report was released on Wednesday.
On Oct. 21, 2013, Mokulele Flight 1770 lost engine power while while flying from Kahului to Waimea on the Big Island, prompting head pilot Robert Fields to turn the plane around in an attempt to return to Kahului Airport. Upon determining that the plane would not be able to reach the airport, Fields, 29, brought the Cessna 208B down in the northbound lanes of Piilani Highway.
The flight crew reported hearing a loud bang and a grinding sounds just before the loss of power. First Officer Mike Lisman also reported seeing sparks coming from the exhaust.
In a statement to the NTSB, Fields reported: "I chose the area with the least cars and Mike pointed out obstructions during the descent on both sides of the highway. We narrowly missed power lines, light poles and steep embankments on both sides of the highway. We touched down on top of the hill, braked hard and came to a stop after missing a car."
The plane sustained substantial damage upon striking two highway traffic signs but none of the 10 people aboard — Fields, Lisman and eight passengers — was injured.
An inspection by the plane's manufacturer found significant damage to the power turbine blades, and the compressor turbine hub was observed to have a "frosted" appearance, consistent with glass blasting. Glass-like beads and fragments were also found, "consistent with the disc assembly having been cleaned by glass media blasting in the assembled condition."
Glass media blasting is a common method for cleaning parts. However, the manufacturer's manual specifies that such cleaning must be performed with the disc and blades disassembled and cleaned before assembly.
All 58 compressor turbine blades were found to have been fractured, and the remaining stubs were "gouged and battered," according to the report.
The report noted that the areas of the compressor turbine disc assembly are highly precise and extremely smooth, and that hard contaminants can cause the assembly to function irregularly.
The post-accident examination of the engine found evidence of "glass bead contamination" in the compressor turbine portion of the engine.
The report stated that the plane's compressor turbine disc assembly had been repaired two months before the accident by Southwest Airmotive Corp. and that the assembly had been removed during the repair.

If that is not on OPS SPECS you are not a required crewmember.

Right now, we aren't hiring. I think in a month we will interview for a January class. As far as getting on, if you have a referral from one of us, you get an interview. Be prepared, I'd say almost half don't make it through and quite a few are flunking out after ground school when they get to the plane. Some people don't come prepared and think it will be easy but they are very picky about who makes it. We have a sim in Denver and Maui for the interview so be prepared. Also, be on the top of your IFR game. Know the regs. I hear we get on average four applications per day. I went from first day of ground to flying the line in two weeks. We have a lot of turn over here. It's a great time building job. Don't expect to make much as an SIC but we all have to pay our dues. Hope this helps.
