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.

ENVIRON SCENERY - PROVIDENCE FSX P3D
John Thuot II
I have been looking for a more modern look to Providence City sky line for a long time. It is finally here with Environ Scenery's project. It is truly awesome to see the buildings as they should be in the real world locations. I am from the local area and can point out many of the landmarks in the city as you travel over it. Great job Environ Scenery, maybe upgrade the airports just a bit and you have yourself a wonderful gem of a scenery project!!!!!

I have a very very powerful machine that can run the PMDG 747 v3 with any aerosoft scenery at 40+ fps. This scenery however I get OOM'd before I can even taxi with DEFAULT AIRCRAFT. This scenery is a HUGE VAS drainer!
FBS - CAM RANH INTL AIRPORT 2013 FSX
Fulvio Arman
This review is written just to warn P3D users not to buy it. I made a mistake - it's a personal choice and consequently a personal fault -, hoping it might have been at last partially compatible with _P3D, such as a lot of FSX add-ons I sucessfully installed. Said that, I think its price is quite high if compared to its quality (25 MB); more, I wrote to the support service but no answer at all.

I'd like to get this as there really is not any ND scenery. but the scenery quality is not there yet, there are no orthophoto sceneries, the parking lot is grass, there is no surrounding city or buildings.

disappointing. drawn water, grainy textures, incorrect colors, patchwork. A bad, rushed work.
REALWORLD SCENERY - REALWORLD SCENERY GREECE 3D VOL.1.6 FSX P3D
Alessandro Vannetti
I'm writing a second review because after some days the developer answer to me and send me a noshoreline.bgl which didn't solved the problem of "water cliffs" i reported in the first review... but still maked an effort. Also-
, i discovered that the issue was related to taburet mesh or to a conflict between it and fs global mesh europe which i had activated together. Infact disabling taburet solved the problem and improved also the performance. I believe its taburet and p3dv4 because disabling it didn't solve the problem (along with noshoreline.bgl-
). The scenery is a little better in definitiion than other payware photoreal like megascenery i bought megascenery portugal and it far worst in color error and definition. Still it may be worse in definition than outstanding freeware such like xplane orto or italy photoreal. So this is a good solution for scenery in general and it is absolutely recomended for those who love greece. I give 5 stars to compensate the first low review, final vote after exstensive testing 4 stars because its a bit expensive but it has autogen (with too few trees).

Yann Martineau
Very unprofessionnal product. Huge VAS eater. i loaded the default 737 when a bit around the airport i had fsuipc alert and only 250000 vas left. Even with big airports from well known designers and PMDG aircrafts i never saw that! Will ask for refund coz this one is purely and simply a scam. Simmarke-
t should have a minimum of quality control
