Documents to Bring with You
You'll need to produce the proper paperwork in order to rent a plane.
Fixed base operators in Hawaii are known for being thorough in their inspections
of your qualifications. In fact, some operators even make photocopies
of your paperwork. Listed below are those documents you'll need to bring
- Pilot Certificate.
- Medical Certificate— Ensure that your medical will not have expired.
- Logbooks— You should bring your pilot logbooks with you to Hawaii,
especially if you plan to rent a twin-engine plane or a complex single.
Insurance companies list specific pilot experience minimums for many
of the planes that they insure, and your logbooks may be needed to show
that you meet the requirements.
- Proof of recent Biennial Flight Review (BFR)— You'll need to show
that within the past 24 months you have satisfied the requirements of
a flight review, as spelled out in FAR Part 61. A logbook with the proper
BFR endorsement made by a flight instructor is acceptable. A separate
document with the same endorsement would also be acceptable. If the
date of issue of your pilot certificate is less than two years old,
the certificate itself satisfies the requirement.
