Visiting Haleiwa Field air strip

My husband's grandfather was at Haleiwa Field the morning of the Pearl Harbor attack and helped get two of the pilots under his command (Welch and Taylor) in the air to fight the Japanese. My husband really wants to see the old airfield while we are on the island, what is it like tody and how do we get there (we'll have a car)?

Jenny: I would imaging that if you used Google maps you would be able to figure out how to get there. And then, once you get there, you'll know what it's like today? Chuck.

As near as I can tell, it is just north of Haleiwa Beach Park. That is the beach park on the north end of Haleiwa just as you are leaving town.

You can see Puaena Pt. on this map just above Haleiwa Beach Park.

The airfield is just to the right of Puaena Pt. Almost looks like you can see remnants of the runway.

You may be able to park at Haleiwa Beach Park & walk there.

It's home to several glider companies there. If you have time a glider ride is fairly enjoyable. I did it several years ago with no reservations.

Rex, I thought all of the gliders were out of Dillingham.
