Join us at HCF for our "Save the Wholphins" Extravaganza on July 31st from 2359z-0400z! Now a majority of you will be wondering; what the heck is a Wholphin? The Wholphin is named after the breed of a Dolphin and a Whale. Currently, only one is living in captivity. The one in captivity is located at Sea Life Park in Hawaii nestled on the southeast corner of the island of Oahu. In the "Save the Wholphins" event, we feature the closest airport to the Wholphin sanctuary, Kaneohe Bay Military Airfield. We also feature Molokai and Honolulu for beautiful crossings between Oahu and Molokai. We hope to see you there!
Join Honolulu CF as we work with TFDi Design for another round of the "7/17 In Paradise" event in celebration of the release of version 1.1 of the TFDi Boeing 717-200. We will be staffing PHNL and PHOG, as well as other various airports. Come to HCF for a fun-filled evening of flying VFR and IFR around the islands with a chance to win a copy of the TFDI 717. We hope to see you there!
Date: 7/17/18 from 2359z-0400z (8pm EDT-12am EDT)

My guess is we were all good little controllers. AIRAC 1807 is HERE! With this update come some minor changes to PHKO - Kona International. The rest of HCF remain unchanged. Now as for ZUA we have a few things to cover.
Due to VATUSA directions, "GUM_CTR" is no longer to be used until further notice. C1s wishing to control Guam enroute should connect as APP and set multiple visibility points. All of ZUA will now be covered by two approach sectors. Guam North and Guam South. Each sector will have High and Low frequencies. Under unified conditions, Guam South Low will be the primary frequency. Please reference positions table 1.4 for exact frequencies and splits.
Note that I along with the rest of the staff here at HCF have taken all steps necessary to try and stay as close to real-world configurations as possible. If anyone has any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time. I will do my best to have answers for you. I want to thank you all for your continued support of our facility, and I hope to see you on the scopes soon. As usual, feel free to contact me any time.

It's time for a much needed Guam Friday Night Ops event!
HCF will be staffing PGUM on July 6th, 2018, from 2359z to 0400z. We will be staffing PGUA and PGSN based on controller availability. A pilot brief will be available one week before the event.
We will be partially staffing PHNL (Hawaii) from 1630z until 1830z to provide a window for ATC services for anyone wanting to fly PHNL-PGUM.
Please update your scenery to ensure everyone has the correct taxiways! This is a real issue at PGUM where taxiway K is not fully extended in FSX default scenery. PLEASE UPDATE!
When flying out of PGUM, please advise Clearance Delivery on initial contact what scenery you are using. Please put it in your remarks as well.
