Tonga Domestic comprises three domestic Tongan airports. The three airports vary in size and caters for small to medium type aircraft ferrying local passengers and freight between local Tongan islands and neigbouring Fiji, Samoa, Niue and Cook Islands. Chatham Pacific and Peau-Vava'u (until recently) are the only two active domestic airlines operating the Kingdom's north to south islands.

HA'APAI-LIFUKA AIRPORT (ICAO: NFTL), also known as Salote Pilolevu Airport, it is situated due north of Fua'amotu International (NFTF). It is 99nm from Fua'amotu and 75nm due south of Vava'u International (NFTV). The airport has a 3,937x98ft (1200x30m) bituminous/asphalt mixed runway and is subject to frequent cross-winds.

VAVA'U INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (ICAO: NFTV), also known as Lupepau'u International Airport, it is located 75nm north of Ha'apai-Lifuka (NFTL) and 173nm from Fua'amotu International Airport (NFTF). The airport is located 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the capital Neiafu.

Vava’u is Tonga’s main tourism hub, with over 34 islands providing both dramatic scenery and a world renown center for water related activities; sailing, fishing, diving.

Vava'u is an international airport however scheduled international flights no longer operate with all such flights arriving in Tongatapu. Charters and private aircraft still use the International facilities at Vava'u. Domestic air services are operated by Chathams Pacific twice daily to and from Tongatapu. The company generally run a 50 seat Convair 580 on this route with an 18 seat Metroliner also used periodically. Flight time is 50 minutes to Tongatapu, 30 minutes to Ha’apai and a little over one hour to Niuatoputapu in the north.

The airport has a 5,593x98ft (1659x30m) asphalt-bituminous mixed runway

NIUATOPUTAPU (ICAO: NFTP), is one of the two Niuas (Niuafo’ou, being the other) situated farthest north of all the islands of Tonga. It is halfway between Vava’u and Samoa. By plane, it is 157nm from Vava'u, 230nm from Ha'apai-Lifuka, and 325nm from Fua'amotu International Airport. Niuatoputapu by location is remote and undeveloped, while Tongan tradition culture remain strong. The climate is noticeably warmer than the southern parts of the Kingdom. Niuatoputapu is a flat coral island but there is a 200 metre high ridge running along the central part of the island, with volcanic Tafahi Island just offshore. Beautiful beaches and small traditional communities with elaborate churches surround the island.

Limited domestic air services operated by Chathams Pacific connect Niuatoputapu to Vava’u and Tongatapu. The airfield has a 4,265x88ft (1300x27m) unsealed coral strip runway.

PRODUCT DISCLOSURE and DISCLAIMER

Similar to any Flight Simulator (FS) Addons, this product may have issues that are either default (P3Dv4-related) or developer-related. Issues that are P3Dv4-related, whether documented or undocumented are many, but we can only speak for our product. Although there are no micro-stutters or huge lag in fps as tested, it is advisable to lower the Water Effects within P3Dv4 Display Settings to High 2x. and set Autogen down to respectable levels for fluidity. These are recommended for lower to medium-end systems, however the scenery is meant for sliders maxed at 100% peak for those computers who can afford the high level scenery design.

No technical issues were encountered during various beta tests, whether hardware or software- related. Instructions for installation of software are straightforward; however, venturing outside bounds of recommended installation and use is at sole discretion of End-User.

REQUIREMENTS

RECOMMENDED P3DV4 SETTINGS

Frame rates from scenery complexity and autogen settings were averaged at 30fps and above. This includes moving sliders 100% to the right. Lower settings yielded much higher frames, but our recommendation is Dense to Extreme Dense for variable exceptional rates. Since the scenery is 15/30/60cm/pixel photoreal, it is highly recommended that Mesh Resolution be set at 1 meter within P3DV4 Display Settings (slider 100% to the right). Texture Resolution should also be set at 30cm and above (or slider 100% to the right).

Mesh Requirement:

To enjoy the product's terrain conditions comparative to real-world, we recommend using any 76m or higher resolution mesh from any of these vendors: FS Genesis, Abacus's "World and USA Extreme Landscapes," or FSGlobal. If you can't afford these products, you can still get the same mesh resolution from Thomas Trewin's Oceania-Asia series. The five-part terrain mesh can be downloaded here:

Recommended AI Traffic requirements and settings:

There are AI boat traffic around all three islands. To maintain a formidable exceptional level of FPS, it is recommended that leisure boats be set at 30% or less. AI road traffic is only found at/near the airport so as to save on FPS. Recommended setting is 10% or lower.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KJFK, KLGA, KTEB FSX P3D
Joseph DePaola
Drzewiecki Design have done an excellent job with their latest installments. The visuals are great for being FPS friendly and the ground modeling is absolutely superb. Almost everything about these packs is on point with what NY airports have! This was very much needed in the FS community and I'm elated Drzewiecki Design answered the call with this product.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KEWR, KLDJ, KCDW FSX P3D
luca bonomo
I owned the previous version of KEWR and I can say the difference between V1 and V2 is night and day. The performance seems much smoother and flying into EWR is finally possible. The airport isn't the most detailed, but at this price point I won't complain. They did include the IKEA which is nice! Anyone familiar with EWR knows the IKEA! One quirk I found with KEWR is that traffic always seems to be using only runway 29 for takeoffs and landings which doesn't happen at Newark. I was also a bit let down realizing that only the jetways at Terminals A and B are animated, terminal C is stuck with static jetways that don't move. Again, a little disappointing considering terminal C is the United Terminal. All in all, it's a great representation of Newark Airport, I would recommend it.
LATINVFR - MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KMIA V3 FSX P3D
Andrew Birg
Excellent rendition, had v1 installed in FSX but the v3 is a great leap forward! love the autogen on the west, coming in for arrival 09. The surrounding area is awesome and the airport is top notch! recommend!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KJFK, KLGA, KTEB FSX P3D
Andrew Birg
Superb details, right on the needed quality/perform-
ance ratio for such a performance intensive section of FS, clearly the heaviest in the FS world. On my FSX steam I have top notch performance using the NGX and the PMDG777 at JFK. Even with most things maxed out I get better FPS than the other competitor's JFK. Managed to do some GA flights out of KTEB and looking at mid town manhattan no FPS hit. Clearly an excellent addon!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KEWR, KLDJ, KCDW FSX P3D
Joshua Weinstein
I owned the previous version of NY Airports and was very happy with the quality. I'm a real life pilot based out of KCDW so attention to detail was paramount. Now I have V2 for PD3v4 and I couldn't be happier. The frame rates are awesome, the detail is gorgeous, and the night lighting is really something else. You can even see the name of the flight school I work for on the side of the building at Caldwell! You won't get FlyTampa detail at KEWR, but you'll get a seriously good contender for the price. And that's just it, dollar for dollar this is a great addon for anyone who likes GA airports in the tri-state area and wants a major step up from the default big airports. I continue to be impressed by Drzewiecki Design.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KJFK, KLGA, KTEB FSX P3D
Philip Jensen
For what it is advertised as 5/5. 3 Airports done very well for a light version and they are full of life with plenty of static visuals around. The most up to date KJFK and even has the taxi bridges 3D modeled, not flat 2D graphics!
CAPTAIN SIM - 777-300 EXPANSION MODELS FSX P3D
Joel Harty
This is a great aircraft for anyone wanting to learn the 777 in the virtual skies of flight simulator. Most aspects of the flight deck are modeled and clickable, with an accurate FMC. Detail of textures is great and the aircraft handles as expected. Whilst not of the same study level detail as the PMDG 777, this is a great, albeit cheaper alternative! Why not 5 stars? Well the night texture/lightin-
g in P3D v3 requires some work (very bright or too dark), as do the external lights. Some of the sounds both inside and outside the VC don't appear as realistic as they could be. Other than that, the Captain Sim 777 is a good all round aircraft!

alexei nicolov
Nice product, not bad performance wise but there is a huge problem with the runway lights, they pop out from the ground in a triangular shape, see the first picture bottom right. Actually rwy lights need to fixed, it's very unrealistic. J-
FK CRI arrival leading lights are a big plus. Otherwis-
e runway lights during night time are awful, hope for a fix.
JUSTSIM - INNSBRUCK AIRPORT AUSTRIA - LOWI FSX P3D
TS Brady
The scenery is only so-so. Lots of imperfections like trees having light blue outlines when you're at ground level (3 stars). I bought the scenery 2 months ago and now they expect me to pay again for a P3D4 installer. Unacceptable (2 stars)!
FABIO MERLO - FLIGHTCONTROLREPLAY PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Jakub Huck-Milbrat
I'm terribly disappointed, money thrown at the trash, as for me. During replay, sitting sound, movie once accelerated, once it slows down, DRAMA, TRAGEDY!!!
