King Shaka International Airport (FALE) was conceptualized in the 1960’s when it was realized that the old Louis Botha/Durban International airport (FADN), to the south of Durban, would soon reach its capacity.

Construction began in 1973 and by 1975 the earthworks and a storm drainage system to the value of R320 million were completed. By 1982, the project was halted due to the economic slowdown. A local Micro light club made use of the grassed over runway. The new airport was named La Mercy Airport (FALE) after the town of La Mercy located five kilometers east of the airport.

Construction at the airport site recommenced on the 24 August 2007 and the airport was opened on the 1st of May 2010. King Shaka International Airport (FALE) is located 35 kilometers (22 miles) from the City of Durban.


This package contains an update that will update the default Flight Simulator X / Flight Simulator X : SE / Prepar3D airports for the Durban Area. Durban Intl (FADN) will be closed, King Shaka Intl (FALE) will be added and Virginia (FAVG) will be moved to the correct location further inland.

    I am from Durban so I had to have this particular one and I was very impressed. I am not going to repeat what has already been said but I even looked at the shops outside and inside the building and it is the actual shops that is there. Like someone said here already its very frame rate friendly, well done NMG.

    FANTASTIC QUALITY PRODUCT! The only disappointment I had, was that I didn’t order it sooner!

    Apart from the great product, I really want to commend NMG for exceptional customer service! Before I bought the product, all of my questions were answered. Even experiencing a minor log-in issue on purchase, I was helped efficiently. Emails are responded to almost immediately. He knows his product! If you’re considering it – purchase it. You won’t be sorry and that’s from someone who has been disappointed before with FSX payware addons.

    This is by far the best South African Airport for FSX. I have been there and I can recognize every detail. Brilliant Work!

    AMAZING!!! Even better than Cape Town! You guys just keep getting better and better!! The shops outside and inside the terminal is as true to life as I have ever seen! I cannot imagine any airport more true to life.

    That fire exercise with the burning plane and the fire trucks with the flashing lights is a nice touch. I was very much surprised to see it for the first time!

    An accurate rendition of the real thing ! A nice feature of this airport is that it does not affect performance as much as OR Tambo – and so is frame-rate friendly. Would be really nice to see more realistic “photo-real” textures being used for the buildings and ground areas in and around the airport (this is a general recommendation for all NMG airports) as the airports look a little too clinical and “clean”. Otherwise a great product.

    This airport is the 3rd airport that I’ve purchased and wow! You guys are making amazing products! Worth every cent! I hope you have many more sceneries planned. Maybe a general South Africa scenery? Keep up the good work!
