NMG Simulations Releases King Shaka International for MSFS

NMG Simulations have released their rendition of King Shaka International Airport (FALE) in Durban, South Africa for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The airport is located 35 kilometers (22 miles) from the City of Durban, and 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 (approx. $96,000,000USD inflation adjusted for 2023) were completed. By 1982, the project was halted due to 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 recommenced on the 24 August 2007 and the new airport was opened on the 1st of May 2010.

Looking at the images provided on the product page on SimMarket, it becomes quickly apparent that the majority of this scenery’s buildings including the terminal and gates have been ported over from previous versions of this scenery build for P3Dv4. The MSFS version also comes with default jetways and limited signs of wear on the ground markings.

NMG’s King Shaka International Airport (FALE) for Microsoft Flight Simulator is available for €21.60 including taxes. Customers who bought the scenery for X-Plane, P3D or FSX are entitled to a €5.00 discount.
