The islandwide inspections are scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

However, officials say that the exact times and routes will depend on weather conditions.

Inspections will be conducted in a Manuiwa Airways helicopter which requires the aircraft to fly low and slow which may cause some noise disturbances.

Hawai‘i Electric Light apologizes for any disruption and thanks the community for their cooperation and understanding.
