The RealSimGear® GNS430 is a high quality, ultra realistic hardware interface for your flight simulator. The RealSimGear® GN430 matches as close as possible to the real thing, including ultra realistic silicone buttons and replica knobs. It is the best way to learn the functionality of the Garmin 430, much more realistic than using the mouse or a touch screen.
Fully functional knobs and tactile silicone buttons
We have replicated the feel and function of the Garmin 430 knobs and buttons, allowing you to learn how to easily navigate the menu system, load a flight plan or approach procedures.
Change your comm radio frequencies quickly and easily
No more fumbling with the mouse. The RealSimGear ® GN430 allows for the development of muscle memory and improves proficiency needed for instrument flying.
Make your sim training more effective
And representative of real world flying.
Desktop or panel mount
This product can be mounted in an existing panel or used with our desktop stand. Great for flying students, pilots and home cockpit builders
No assembly, 3D printing, soldering etc required
This product is especially helpful for learning and practicing instrument flying procedures. When coupled with virtual ATC like PilotEdge or VatSIM, this provides the most realistic simulation possible. This allows you to develop familiarity with the Garmin 430 interface and controls so you can be better prepared for actual lessons with your CFII.
This unit features it's own 3.5" LCD screen that is used to display the Garmin 430 pop out screen from your flight simulator program.

GNS430 display fix
Very nicely done and prompt response from support team…. Fix was done on a very good time frame.
Works perfectly the same as my actual 430 in my Arrow!
I have not been able to get the device to run until today. the use of the software presents me with big problems . I personally like plug and play and therefore I will sell it. You should think about the software from CP-Flight. Connect the device and put it into operation, ready. MfG. Norbert Werner
Love it - One suggestion
I love the realistic feel of this device. However it would be great if they had the panel controls light up. I do night flight training in the dark and unable to see the controls in the dark.
I’ve had the GNS430 for about a month now & I absolutely love it. The tactile feel & keys feel identical to the actual GNS430 & it’s helped me with my Cross-Country flights & general knowledge of the system in the real aircraft. Now that I have it, I cannot fly in the simulator without it. Spot on product. Hats off to RealSimGear for this. I look forward to purchasing other products of this quality in the future.
