Flight1 GNS 430 and GNS 530 Introduction

Now Prepar3d Version 4.5 Compatible!

The GNS 430 and GNS 530 series gauges have lead the industry with multitasking, intergrated avionics and cutting edge WAAS navigation for many years. A single GNS 430 or GNS 530 functions as a communications radio (COMM), a VOR/ILS/GS receiver (NAV), and a moving map GPS. Combining one of each makes a common dual-GPS avioncs suite for IFR-certified aircraft.

Flight1 GNS Complete - All in One!

The GNS Complete series brings you many products in one! You get BOTH the GNS 430 and 530 products that used to be sold separately. You also get FSX/FSX Steam, Prepar3D v3 and Prepar3d v4 versions included in this package.

GNS Complete Product Features

The Flight1 Software GNS series gauges are nearly identical to their real-world counterparts.

  • Smooth Framerate Performance - The GNS Avionics Series is a step above other avionics packages out there, in that it doesn't use FSX/P3D internal processes to hinder simulation performance. All avionics data structures, calculations, and processes are done on its own using external processes that are separate from FSX. This allows your simulation experience to run smoother and have minimal frame rate or VAS impact overall.
  • Each GNS series gauge features a high-contrast color display that makes it easy to read and interpret pilot-critical information. Quickly and easily see your position realtive to ground features, navaids, flight plan routings, approach procedures and more.

  • The navigation database contains location reference for airports, VORs, NDBs, Intersections, Special Use Airspace and more.
  • A detailed basemap shows airports, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes, coastlines, and more.
