Castle & Cooke’s Hawaii facility

U.S. aviation services provider Castle & Cooke has been an ABACE exhibitor since 2012, explaining the role of a fixed-base operator (FBO) to show attendees who might not be familiar with the fueling and ground-handling services such a company provides to private aviation. As the company returns to the Shanghai show for the third time, it is providing a translator (Booth H431) to more fully answer attendee questions.

Bradley Pacific executive vice president and general manager Shaen Tarter stands on the ramp at the FBO chain's Honolulu facility. Though the stiff trade winds wreak havoc with his hair, they keep the Hawaiian Islands a constant 75 to 85 degrees F year-round. Because it is so temperate, transient aircraft are parked on the ramp at its six Hawaiian FBOs, and only Bradley's Honolulu facility even has a hangar.

Bradley Pacific has become the leading FBO chain in Hawaii, uplifting an astounding one million gallons of jet-A daily to a mix of business jets and airliners. It also has the only Corporate Aircraft Association-preferred FBOs in the state, which puts it in the top echelon of business aviation service facilities.

America’s Aloha State learned recently that flying around Hawaiian airports means connecting with the FAA at some point. As part of a $1.4 million federal grant to upgrade Honolulu port security, the state’s transportation department purchased an unmmaned aircraft with HD cameras to track activity on the ground.

Hawaiian de Havilland Dash 8 operator IslandAir withdrew from a newly awarded Essential Air Service (EAS) contract to serve four mainland communities from Kansas City last month after deeming its plans to start operations in September “unrealistic” due to rising fuel costs and a shortage of trained personnel.
