Bill turns back to mainland US
Almost to waypoint FLITY, Bill had to turn back at 128W for the same issue. He is holding altitude and has about 230 kts groundspeed as he heads to KSBP, San Luis Obispo,CA, We expect about 2 hrs flight time to KSBP, ETA 1900Z, 1300 EST.
After his stop in Austin, Bill indicated that it was a simple fix and continued to HNL. We are not certain if it is the same issue or a new problem. All the equipment on the plane has had at least 100 hrs of testing.
