Nadi International Airport (IATA: NAN, ICAO: NFFN) is the main international gateway for the Republic of Fiji as well as an important regional hub for the South Pacific islands, located by the coast on the western side of the main island Viti Levu. It is the main hub of Fiji Airways and its domestic and regional subsidiary Pacific Sun. The airport is 10 km from the city of Nadi and 20km from the city of Lautoka. In 2011 it handled 2,231,300 passengers on international and domestic flights. Despite being the main airport of the country, it is quite far away from its capital, about 192 km from Suva, a 2.5 hour drive.

Arrivals and departures are much preferred to be to the south, due to the closeness of the Sabeto mountain range to the immediate north of the airport. A large turn around area, suitable for Boeing 747s, is to the left of the threshold of Runway 02, in case meteorological factors make departure to the north necessary.

In 2008, a Qantas Airbus A380 had to make an emergency landing to disembark a sick passenger, showing that whilst not certified, the facilities at Nadi are sufficient to cater for the largest civilian aeroplane in the world.
Nadi is the operational base for Fiji Airways, which services six airports throughout the southwest Pacific, and many more on the Pacific Rim. Remnants of the largest FIS in the world remain as, for example, Nadi Tower provides an FIS service for Fua'amotu Airport in Tonga when Fua'amotu Tower is off watch.

This scenery has the main features:

Terminal buildings look great but the landscape looks poor.

Very dissapointing. Really doesn't look like the screen shots. Grainy with no detail. The ground textures are really bad. As another review said, Fiji is NOT gray.

The photos tell the story. Whilst the buildings are reasonably accurate the ground textures ruin it. This is Fiji - a lush green island - not a blue/grey barren landscape.

I agree with the other review, but I think the excellent customer support is worth mentioning. I reported a bug and got a swift reply that a fix was underway and two days later I got the link sent to me by e-mail. This is a product that is worth the price and I am sure they are working on fixing the bugs mentioned.

This scenery is an accurate depiction of Nadi International Airport. The airport layout is accurate to the current state of the real airport as far as I can tell. The terminal is well modeled. Textures on terminals are nice but are lacking the kind of details like dirt, shadows etc. that would give them additional appeal. The apron and runway textures are very grainy, probably produced by overuse of a noise filter. This does not look realistic and the developers should go for less grainy textures. The scenery has no noticeable impact on performance on my system while flying the PMDG777. There are also no issues with memory usage that became apparent to me. Overall I would rank the quality of this work as a mid range scenery which is reflected in the moderate price the developers are asking for it.

The scenery has the following flaws:

PAPI RWY 02 not working, always showing four white lights

Approach lights for runway 02 disappear when getting closer.

Approach lighting for runway 09 is floating in the air, no light poles are modeled

Apron and runway textures are unrealistically grainy. These overly grainy textures cause shimmering when viewed from a large distance

Unfortunately there are no moving jetways, I'm aware the developers don't advertise moving jetways but it would be a nice addition

Some textures should be provided in higher resolution, i.e. the Fiji Airways logo on the hangar.

The photo background is quite low resolution and has a strange blueish/gray tint to it. It probably has to be color corrected.

I hope that the developer will address some of the issues mentioned in an update.

If you specifically want to fly in and out of Nadi and can live with the above-mentioned flaws then go for it! If you are looking for a nice island destination and don't care about what it is then I suggest you go look somewhere else.

RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT MSFS
Igor
Excellent product, one of the best for MSFS! Very professional and complex with 0 impact to FPS! Ok, I have to admit that I bought the scenery for error; but when I saw it in MSFS it was a huge surprise! Worth every penny, every cent.
RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT XP11
Marek
excellent airport for XP11, great accurate and nice colors!
SIM FEDERATION - EMBRAER PHENOM 300E MSFS
john
Not worth the money. Almost nothing works on the model. Nice looking from the outside and flys ok but it is a msfs flight store special...shoul-
d be priced at $9.00.
CIMOGT - ESSEX-CLASS AIRCRAFT CARRIER FSX P3D
Andreas
The third CIMOGT carrier I purchased. The price is outstanding, the ship is a nice addition because it is a small one and tricky to catch the wire. Textures are quite good and using the hangar deck is a nice incentive to get your "carrier-qualif-
ication". Frame rates are very good. I highly recommend this product.
AC SCENERY - CITY3D ABERDEEN P3D4-5
Andreas
Only a few special objects. Rest is a repetition of textures: One type of boat, one type of shops and so on. The ground textures have no natural colour and are in contrast with ORBX Scotland and Just Flight photo scenery. Product has the quality of a freeware product. Not so bad if your home base is situated in the area otherwise not recommended.

Very realistic and detailed airport. Inclu-
ding the new terminal.
ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Kent
External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars: - Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently - Add visual AB effect - Make the default be NO external stores - Add a paint kit - Add a an RF-8A or G variant ...a-
nd BOOM! It's a 5/5.
FLYTAMPA - LEGACY - COPENHAGEN FSX P3D3
Ian
Overall another excellent scenery from FlyTampa - great quality textures. A couple of technical issues noted. Unlike their LOWW scenery, the EKCH configuration gives only two options for runway operation. This should probably be based on wind direction on a given day, especially with those of us that use some type of real weather software. Also, I find it quite hard to believe that runway 22R would be used for arrivals with the final approach being made over the apron/gate/term-
inal areas. A more realistic set up would be using 22L for arrivals and 22R for departures.
BRSIMDESIGNS - ERCOUPE 415C MSFS

Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/glidin-
g issue for landing.
WINGSIM - MWCR, OWEN ROBERTS INTL AIRPORT P3D4
Ruston
A solid product - certainly a significant step above default scenery or typical freeware. Th-
ere are some issues to note: 1) The photoscenery is low definition. It doesn't look genuinely good until about 5000 ft AGL. Though it makes for a nice initial stage to approach in a passenger jet, maintaining immersion into the lower stages of the approach would require much more in the way of hand-placed 3D buildings and vegetation. Some is included, but not enough to dispel the "flying over a blurry carpet" sense that photoscenery produces at low altitude. 2) The photoscenery has some clouds and "sunken" cruise ships in it. Those familiar with photoscenery know that this is not uncommon with Caribbean locations. 3-
) The lawn surrounding the main terminal flickers noticeably when taxiing or overflying it. 4) Hand-placed trees ended up in the water in several places south of runway 26. In spite of these issues, there are also some nice touches, such as the animated flags and dolphins. The 3D objects are well-crafted for the most part. They took the trouble of creating a night-lighting effect on the photoscenery for evening flying, and the tarmac water and night-lighting effects look quite nice as well. Though I'd probably have felt a bit disappointed had I spent the 17 Euro full price on this purchase, the sale price is very reasonable. I'll be watching to see how this developer progresses, as there is definitely promise here.
