Canadian Xpress December 2021 Monthly Challenge: National Parks II – Hawaii Volcanoes
Written by cxa001 on December 2, 2021
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park encompasses two active volcanoes: Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the world’s most massive shield volcano. The Park provides scientists with insight into the development of the Hawaiian Islands and access for studies of volcanism. For visitors, the park offers dramatic volcanic landscapes, glimpses of rare flora and fauna, and a view into the traditional Hawaiian culture connected to these landscapes.
The Park was originally established on August 1, 1916, as Hawaii National Park, which was then split into this park and Haleakala National Park. In recognition of its outstanding natural values, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was designated as an International Biosphere Reserve in 1980 and a World Heritage Site in 1987.
This month, we are contracted to perform a low-level visual survey around Cape Kumukahi on the east coast of the big island of Hawaii.
Your mission is to fly from Kahului (PHOG) to Pahala Airstrip (HI28) with the Canadian Xpress Cessna C172 Skyhawk or Cessna C208B Grand Caravan freeware or payware aircraft.
