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. 

Product Features:

  • 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
  • Fully assembled
    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. 

** This system is NOT compatible with Mac due to driver and screen handling issues with MacOS.  This will require a PC to work.

  • X-Plane 11 or 12 (Windows only NO Mac support)
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS)
  • GNS430 Navigator
  • USB cable
  • Power supply adapter

** Note HDMI cables are NOT included, you will need to purchase those separately depending on how you plan to connect the video to your computer.

GNS 430

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.
