NMG OR Tambo Intl Airport / Johannesburg V5.0 (P3Dv4)


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.


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.


This airport is highly detailed and as a result you will need to be mindful of your system settings. If your system settings is set too high, then you WILL experience frame rate issues at OR Tambo! Please check and adjust your settings according to your hardware! We have have a Support Knowledge Base article below to help you with your settings.

If adjusting your settings is not an option, then we have a High Frame Rate patch for you. This patch will make OR Tambo Intl Airport more frame rate friendly, but the cost is that this patch will turn the airport into an extremely basic package with just the absolute bare necessities. It is for that reason that we do not recommend the use of this patch at all as it will turn the airport into something we have never envisioned.
