Chubu Centrair International Airport (ICAO: RJGG, IATA: NGO) is situated on an artificial island in the Ise Bay within Aichi Prefecture. The airport is 22 miles (35 km) south of Nagoya in central Japan.

Chubu Centrair was officially opened on February 17, 2005 and is Japan's third off-shore airport, after Nagasaki and Kansai International airports and is also the second airport built in Japan on a man-made island. The airport represents the three main prefectures of Central Japan, Aichi, Gifu and Mie; including 6 other neighboring prefectures, thus servicing 22 million people in total. In 2010, Chubu Centrair saw 9,271,382 passenger transits, had 84,684 aircraft arrivals and departures, and catered for 161,740 freight ops, making it the 8th busiest airport in Japan.

The airport has a 11483ft (3,500m) runway oriented north south (18/36) on 176/356 degree headings and sits 15ft (4.5m) above sea level.

SYSTEM-SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS

Chubu Centrair International Airport was developed on a medium system for medium to high-end computers, and was tested on WinXP, Vista, Win7, and Win8 32/64 bit platforms with medium to high-end graphic cards. Specific requirements include:

Microsoft Flight Simulator X (SP1, SP2/Acceleration, Gold Edition preferred).
Pentium IV 2.6 GHz (2GHz Duo2Core Intel and above or equivalent highly recommended)
256 Mb DirectX 9 graphics card (512 Mb or higher recommended)
Word for Windows to read and print the manual.
270MB of hard disk space required
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 20% 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.

    This is an outstanding airport add-on! Great scenery! My computer does not take too well with some various add-on airports without it becoming a frame rate killer, but PIS-Chubu Centrair Intl was smooth as silk flying to and from with my add-on aircraft as well. Highly recommend!

    I purchased this airport because I was lacking in japanese airports for my FSX game.
I had never heard of Pacific Islands before so I decided to give it a go..
And to my surprise this is a top notch 5 star class airport for FSX.
Very good airport, 5 star quality, performance is superb. The buildings are very very beautiful.
Everything works as it should, ILS works great even with ATC. Arriving at night at this airport is just marvelous. Parking is set like it should be and AI traffic works great with MyTraffic.
I would recommend this airport to everyone out there.
I hope to see more airports coming from these guys!

    I wish I had known about Pacific Islands Simulation earlier. I now have Xiamen, Jeju, and this airport. The details are fantastic with little impact on performance. I look forward to more airports from them!
