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.

Customer Reviews
FSXCENERY - KBTV BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL FSX P3D
Carlos Quesada
I was afraid of buying it, thinking it was going to be toyish and low quality. But I was surprised. It is not an Aerosoft, Fly Tampa or Orbx doing but it is very nicely done, recreates exactly the airport and enviroment, nice textures, looks like a lot of time was invested. Good job! very satisfied with it, no regrets, maybe I'll try others like Belize, always difficult to find. Carlos Quesada
SXAIRPORTDESIGN - BIRMINGHAM-SHUTTLESWORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Greg Blakley
Really impressed with this one. Sure it's not top-tier type quality but it's still very, very good. Frames through the rough and butter smooth. The price is just right for what you get. I am pleased that they are doing the smaller commercial airports....ple-
ase keep it up!
NXGN SIMULATIONS - CITATION CJ4X FSX P3D
Remco van Reeuwijk
I am a sucker for small businessjets. So, I just had to get this CJ4X. And though it's not comparable to Carenado, it looks good. Textures could have been better, but hey... for this price it sure is acceptable. It handles smooth. Has a nice cabin and sounds natural. And for those guys out there that are sometimes troubled by the framerate while flying the full HD Carenado jets (lie myself): this is your little bird.

AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Jacques TOURON
Not bad at all, easy to operate. Operating manuals very detailed. 2 main concerns, as far as I'm concerned : -Yoke which can't be hidden and QUITE obstructing, xtremely annoying. -All twisted panels which give me STIFF NECK ! Can't understand what's behind it but I'm not the developer.
ABACUS - AIRBUS A319 TEST PILOT
Eskil Dalenius
This is a mission pack for all those who, like me, enjoy flying airliners. Specifically, you are a test pilot for Airbus in Toulouse, making one of the first flights with the A319, and then making a sales pitch for a potential Austrian customer. The pack thus consists of just two missions, and a nice rendition of the A319 in two Airbus house liveries is included. You are being well guided throughout the missions, so they are not especially difficult. They are, however, quite long - each has a duration of 2½ hours. There is a reward for the second mission only. The missions are made by a team headed by the talented Mathieu O’Hare, who has provided numerous missions, both freeware and payware, over the years. Sadly, there is a programming error in the mission (.XML) file for part 1, which means that the mission will never come to completion. If you want to correct it, look for SimMission.Prop-

ether you find the price right for two missions and a plane is up to you, but I think it is quite good.
AFLOSIM - HENRI COANDA AIRPORT BUCHAREST FSX P3D
Luka Albreht
I've never written a review so far (i don't know why if i'm honest) but this one deserves it. Buying this was one of the most pleasant surprises for me so far regarding sceneries. Seamless installation, beautifully made with excellent performance both in terms of fps and vas usage. Lots of details with fully functional jetways and docking systems makes it one of the must buy addons. Same goes for Cluj airport also made by AflOSim. Keep up the good work and looking forward to future projects.
