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.

MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Gregory Knuth
VERY impressed. I've used another 'quick fix" or "quick shade" program that gave me poor results, even after following their instructions... the other product gave me such dark nights I could hardly see anything. TH-
IS product has been incredible. If I could attach screen shots I would. Buy it.. I think for a quick shade program they did an incredible job. Even the clouds are much, MUCH better!
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: ST. VINCENT 2019 FSX P3D
Miquel Mellanson
This addon is the best I highly recommend it and the customer service for troubleshooting is top notch. The Caribsky St.Vincent 2019, is worth the purchase. Thanks Richer Simulations for producing this fine scenery of TSVA/ Argyle International Airport. Trust me FSX Steam Edition users will love this also not forgetting P3D users.
REALWORLDSCENERY - ULTRA VFR ARIZONA PART 1
Travis Perkins
Just installed VFR AZ pts 1 and 2, added them to the scenery library and started my scenario at KPHX. My frame rate was 2, normally 30, and the scenery wasn't showing, just the usual Orbx NA LC. when I deactivate the scenery, frame rate returns to normal. I have these sceneries installed exactly like my PAUN and Talkeetna which work fine. Posted in the forum and emailed support with no response.

FABIO MERLO - FLIGHTCONTROLREPLAY PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Chi-cheng Liu
Due to lack of FSRecorder for P3Dv4, I found this product. At first, I think it's a waste of money because the playback function just don't work well. But after reporting issues at the forum, Fabio e-mailed me directly and tried very hard to help me solve the problem. The product have significant improvement because of Fabio's hard work to keep it updating. So, I'll place 5 stars to this great author and the keep improving product. Vol-

A1R DESIGN BUREAU - A1R YAK-12A P3D4
Gary Williams
I have to agree with the previous reviewer. Lots of eye candy and very good performance. The graphics are very well done on this plane. I was quite pleased with it especially for the price. It is very slow though. Don't expect to whiz around the skies in it. My only gripe per se is that all of the gauges and writing is in Russian. I know that it means that the developer was very accurate in it's reproduction of the aircraft but I wish there would be one repaint with English writing. I still give it 5 stars but this would be a nice added feature. Gar-

FABIO MERLO - FLIGHTCONTROLREPLAY PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Robert Timberlake
This tool tries to fill the void where FSRecorder did in FSX however, there is no other tool of its sort for P3D. We use it for our organization in training and it performs very well. We enjoy the ability to record maneuvers and then play them back for students while they are in training. I have contacted Fabio on many occasions and asked for support. He has been prompt and very helpful in his implementing changes that we have asked for. If anyone who gets this software doesn't like or see what they are looking for, then they should get in touch with Fabio and I am sure he will correct the bug in the next released version.
