Flight One Software is proud to announce the release of their GNS 430 and GNS 530 avionics packages for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3d. Building on the experience and success of our award-winning GTN Series, Flight1 has produced the GNS avionics with such detail, that they are nearly identical to their real-world counterparts.
The GNS 430 and GNS 530 series gauges have lead the industry with multitasking, integrated 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 avionics suite for IFR-certified aircraft.
Flight1’s 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/P3D. This allows your simulation experience to run smoother and have minimal frame rate or VAS impact overall.
The GNS Series avionics feature high-contrast color displays, built-in terrain and navigation databases to provide you with a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you are heading. A detailed basemap shows airports, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes, coastlines, along with color coded gauge displays that graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead.
The GNS system also includes full WAAS approach support to fly LPV glideslope approaches, Terrain Proximity Warnings and Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) alerting. Full COM/NAV Receiver integration and GNS Gauge Configuration Utility and Stack Gauge Controller round out the feature set of this beautiful avionics system. For those who currently use the “other” GNS Series system out there, our GNS Config Tool will replace them with ease in both 2d cockpit and VC panel modes.
