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.
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.
