NMG OR Tambo Intl Airport / Johannesburg V5.1 (P3Dv4)

(5 customer reviews)


Opened in 1952, OR Tambo International Airport (FAOR) is the largest airport in South Africa, and also the busiest. It is also a major gateway for tourist traffic and located approximately 24 kilometers (15 mi) from  the Johannesburg city center.

OR Tambo International Airport is bordered by the suburbs of Alberton, Brakpan, Germiston and Kempton Park. It was established in 1952 as the Jan Smuts International Airport, named after Field Marshal Jan Christian Smuts, who was the Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa from 1919 to 1924 and also from 1939 to 1948 as well as a staunch opposer of “Apartheid”.

In 2006 the airport was renamed to OR (Oliver Reginald) Tambo International Airport, after the former president of the African National Congress (ANC), hence the change in the Airport ID from FAJS to FAOR.


This package contains an update that will change the default Johannesburg Airport ID from FAJS to FAOR. The old FAJS airport will no longer be available in your Flight Simulator World Menu. This may cause AI Traffic to stop using Johannesburg / OR Tambo International Airport entirely as some AI Traffic packages uses the older Airport ID of FAJS to route flight to. You will need to contact the provider of your AI package for a solution if you find that your AI Traffic no longer displays.

    Nicely done. Very frame friendly. Not much details inside the terminal which are frame killers.

    Do not expect FlyTampa type detail but you will get an accurate layout with correct markings and frequencies. The frame rates are good and even on high settings will not kill your Simulator. Excellent value for the price.

    Having been an FSX user for years with most of NMG products installed in the Sim, I recently made the rather costly move to Prepar3d V4. As a South African who loves doing flights around SA in the Sim, I knew I had to get the P3d V4 Airports from NMG (thanks for the upgrade discount NMG). So I purchased the 3 main city airports and will hopefully add the others down the line.

    South Africa seems to be a neglected part on the flight sim world, so its wonderful that NMG have produced such realistic and accurate scenery of most of the airports in SA. A good example of this neglect is many AI Traffic addons still use the FAJS code for OR Tambo airport and the Alpha India Group who have not even SAA flight plans in the repository. For another the iconic Table Mountain looks simply awful. NMG’s African Terrain Mesh renders this unique mountain accurately. It is simply wonderful flying into NMG Cape Town International with a good looking and accurate representation of this world famous mountain that the terrain mesh fixes. So if you are flying in SA, to SA or from SA, NMG’s range of SA airports is well worth the reasonable costs. You won’t find these airports of this quality anywhere else.
