Fly Maui

May 1, 2020

On April 29 the FAA issued a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) that provides relief to pilots who will want to get back into flying after the coronavirus shutdown. Many flight schools across the country remain closed or operating with limited training, and checkrides have nearly come to a standstill. This SFAR allows some extensions to help support general aviation pilots and instructors who could potentially be economically impacted by a shutdown that was beyond their control.


We’ll walk through some of these new rules on this episode. We’re also going to end on a positive, optimistic note looking to the future when our state opens back up to travelers & some of the cool things you can do in the air if you’re a pilot visiting Maui.
