The Kona station was the third to be developed after Honolulu and Lihue. BPA continued to be aggressive with each location having unique issues. Kona's primary issue was access to fuel (Jet-A). The current fuel storage at KOA was controlled by the competition (Century & Circle Rainbow*). We knew that we could access Jet-A from Hilo but logistics would be difficult. We came up with a solution but it would limit us to servicing corporate/biz jets until we could develop additional fuel storage. The second issue for BPA was the State of Hawaii, DOT-A... they made it difficult at every turn but we pushed back and let rules & regulation dictate our course.  See more below

In the beginning...

Terry Mooney was one of the very first to join BPA. He helped open Lihue & Kona.. Not an easy task...Mahalo!
