A Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 717-200, registration N478HA performing flight HA-155 from Kahului,HI to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 125 passengers and 5 crew, was in the initial climb out of Kahului's runway 02.

A Cessna Caravan departed Kahului's runway 05 at the same time, however, without clearance.

The FAA reported, that tower spotted the conflict and instructed the Cessna to immediately turn left, then alerted the Boeing crew but saw the Boeing already turn right away from the Cessna.

Both aircraft continued to their destinations without further incident.

The FAA is investigating the occurrence.

The operator of the Cessna Carvan reported that the callsign of his flight also ended in 5. When the pilot heard " ...5 cleared for takeoff" he thought, he was cleared for takeoff, acknowledged, lined up and departed. As there is usually no response from tower on the readback the pilot did not recognize anything untoward, however, both Hawaiian and the Cessna transmitted at the same time blocking each other's call. Tower actually heard the Hawaiian readback, but did not pick up the Cessna readback. Steps are already being taken to prevent a repeat.
