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
DAZZLE COLOUR GAME - MOHE GULIAN AIRPORT ZYMH FSX P3D4
Fulvio Arman
Well, if compared to its price, it's a decent price; I purchased it just for its geographical position interesting for my tours. Cons; flickering in the fences. The overall appeal is something more than a freeware. In conclusion, purchase it only if you need it.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
Andrew Birg
Was worried about performance when used with the airports package... but was completely blown away with better performance than with the default when installed. It is a must for flying in and out of Seattle. Honestly the best city package period. Must buy!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
Not so great when using alone but together with Seattle Airports this is probably the best bundle for FS I've seen so far. The area is huge, there is an amazing amount of details and FPS is actually better than in the default scenery (FSX:SE and P3Dv4). Not only the downtown area is covered with custom buildings but also many more areas, even MS campus and Bellevue. The large area looks great on approaches to every airport from the Airports pack. Both products highly recommended. Looking forward to their upcoming city products.
FSPS - MULTICORE NEXT FSX
KIM SIBBRITT
Purchased this product a few days ago,& it deserves to be commented on. FSX is very heavily CPU dependant. By default it assigns FSX to Core no.1 only. With Multicore Next I have been able to assign it to ALL 6 Cores on my computer. The improvement has been VAST. FSX is running smoother, Landclass Textures, Trees & Autogen are all drawing in faster,& my Frame Rates have improved. So if like me you have spent a huge amount of time & money on your FSX,& don't want to start all over again with P3D,I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product. It has made big difference to my FSX. Kim.
LATINVFR - KEY WEST KEYW V2 FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
Even though it was published 3 years ago it is still a beautiful product. I love water textures around the island and plenty of details on the apron (humans, vehicles, planes). Also it is great that the whole airport surrounding is included with many non-airport buildings and very good autogen annotation. The location is gorgeous and the product is very well done.
DIGITAL DESIGN - TENERIFE-SOUTH P3D4
Darren Crosby
I was waiting for GCTS for sometime. It was worth the wait. the scenery is excellent, kind on FPS and the attention to detail is on par with other top scenery designer's. I also purchased Mallorca, and Ibiza at the same time. You wont be disappointed.
AEROSOFT - LUKLA X MOUNT EVEREST FSX P3D
Chuck Poole
On my system (W10 i5 4gb VR 16GB System Ram)it would not work in FSX-SE and then after upgrading to Prepar3d v4 I had the same problem. The problem is fractured landscape and misplaced buildings. The plane started sticking out of solid rock. The runway was way off heading. In other words, it was a total disaster and and completely usable. It's been like that for some time.
TOPCAT - Take-Off and Landing Performance Calculation Tool
Matthew Marshall
Whilst this app was great a few years ago, it simply hasn't kept up with the times, for example, there aren't options for the PMDG 777-300ER. Unfortunately, due to this, it has limited lifetime and competitors such as TOPS are actively integrating more aircraft.
FSPS - FSX BOOSTER LIVE 2018
Kelly hanlon
Was a bit leery of this, but purchased to try. Love it, it will not get you more frames all the time, but what it will do is allow you to slide the slider towards more frames when you are coming into land at a complex airport and get an extra 10 fps out of it (mileage will vary). Really not a bad buy. One slider and that is it...simple.
