Rarotonga International Airport (IATA: RAR, ICAO: NCRG) is the Cook Islands' main international gateway, located in the town and district of Avarua, Rarotonga, 3km west of the downtown area on the northern coast.

Rarotonga is the capital of the Cook Islands comprising 15 jewels dotted over 2,500,000 square kilometres of the tropical South Pacific Ocean. Served in the 1950's by TEAL Short Solent flying boats on the famous 'Coral Route', the Cook Islands entered the jet age with the opening of Rarotonga International Airport's 7,545.93 ft (2,300m) paved runway in January of 1974. Although the airport was officially opened in 1974 it was once the site of a former U.S. World War II base.

Capable of handling aircraft up to Boeing 747s, Rarotonga International Airport now welcomes more than 100,000 visitors annually from all over the World. Since the opening of Rarotonga International a number of international airlines have at one time or another served the Cook Islands, the longest surviving carrier of which is Air New Zealand.

Others to have served the country with scheduled flights at one time or another include Polynesian Airlines, Air Pacific, Air Nauru, South Pacific Island Airways (SPIA), Hawaiian Airlines, Aloha Airlines, Canada 3000 Airlines, Cook Islands International (operated by the now defunct Ansett Australia), Royal Tongan Airlines. Today, Air New Zealand operates schedules from Auckland, Sydney and Los Angeles, Virgin Australia from Auckland, and Air Tahiti from Papeete.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Accurate airport terminal rendition;
  • HD apron/tarmac textures;
  • Custom lighting system on apron/taxiway areas;
  • Custom 76m terrain mesh for the entire island;
  • Custom tropical vegetation;
  • Realistic and elaborate street night lighting ambiance throughout island with no FPS impact;
  • 15cm/pixel photoreal landclass, fully hand textured and sharpend to reaslistic level;
  • Custom ground equipment, vehicles, cargo pods typical to NCRG;
  • AI boats and road traffic;
  • Weathered runway and apron markings;
  • Framerate-friendly;
  • ....and more.

RECOMMENDED FSX SETTINGS

Frame rates from scenery complexity and autogen settings were averaged at 35fps and above. This includes moving sliders 100% to the right. Medium settings yielded much higher frames, but our recommendation is Dense to Very Dense for exceptional rates. Since the scenery is 15cm/pixel photoreal, it is highly recommended that Mesh Resolution be set at 1 meter within FSX Display Settings (slider 100% to the right) and mesh complexity set at 100%. Texture Resolution should also be set at 30cm and above (or slider 100% to the right).
Recommended AI Traffic settings:

There are AI boat traffic within the island airport area. To maintain exceptional FPS levels, it is recommended that leisure boats be set at 40% or less. AI Road traffic should be set at 40% or less. MyTrafficX (5.4) is our preferred AI traffic engine. However, the product is compatible with any other third party payware and/or freeware AI engines as well. Recommended setting for best performance is 60% or less.

PRODUCT DISCLOSURE and DISCLAIMER

Similar to any Flight Simulator (FS) Addons, this product may have issues that are either default (Microsoft-related) or developer-related. Issues that are MS-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 FSX Display Settings to High 2x. and set Autogen down to respectable levels for fluidity. These are recommended for lower to medium-end systems.
 

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.

We will not bear responsibility for issues resulting from installation of the product, in part or full, into former Flight Simulator platforms which includes FS2004 because the product is not backward compatible. Furthermore, we will not be held responsible if files are altered within software for any reason associated with End-User taste or choice.

The product is Non-refundable for these and various other reasons.

Very well done, I'm very happy that someone is finally making sceneries because they want to, not because they just want to make money. The pacific has been so neglected until pacsim came along. Aerosoft Tahiti X was great and NXGN is doing some good scenery but PacSim Rarotonga has raised the bar. The textures are crisp, the frames are smooth, I like that pacsim puts in real to life details where other developers would have used generic scenery objects. Rarotonga is not very big, but this is a great scenery, very detailed, tons of custom objects, a lot of work went into this one little island. My only criticism and this is just an Idea is they should have done all of the Cook Islands and airports and raised the price a little. Flight simmers want an immerse area to fly in and do point to point flights. That's why I loved Tahiti X so much. Maybe we can look forward to Cook Islands X just like Tonga Domestic? A super detailed Aitutaki would be awesome.

Beautiful. Flying with this makes me want to visit. Much better than the Gilligans Island you are given in FSX

One of the best , most detailed scenery I have ever bought . Except Flytampa's , this is the scenery that u should not miss . Very HD runway , coral reef , buildings and custom trees just like u are there . Flying at certain height and distance from the hill , it appears really nice landscape which looks natural , not like the default ugly ones in FSX . I also put it with the freeware Cook Islands together to make a nice combination of these coral islands . I only installed the Northern part as the South part with the freeware version of Rarotonga Int cause error to this scenery , but still really enjoy it . Hope somebody know how to patch the Southern Cook Islands with this scenery . 5 stars ! Its a classic scenery for FSX .
