**ELITE GNS 430 WAAS Control Module Required to Operate GNS 430 WAAS on screen display**
Developed in conjunction with RealityXP, our in-depth GNS 430 WAAS simulation emulates all of the real-life functions of the GNS 430 when used with our ELITE 430 module. Now you to learn, practice and brush up your GNS 430 skills in your own home or office without those tiring videos or boring training books, and you don’t have to pull your airplane out of the hangar; thus saving fuel, time and money. Version 8.6 includes 2011 data cycle, updates to the GPS data are available here.
Bendix/King Silver Crown Plus™ Avionics
This highly popular Bendix/King radio stack offers the latest in convenience and advanced features. The NAV/COMs alone have integrated elapsed timers, CDI/OBS, and the ability to store a myriad of frequencies! The Silver Crown Plus™ is a new stack for a new generation.
Enhanced INOP Instrument Presentation
Partial panel work has never been more realistic! The Instrument INOP feature allows you to place a virtual instrument cover on a selected instrument or instruments. The covers are similar in appearance to the familiar rubber suction cup covers used for partial panel practice in traditional instrument training. The covers can be used independent of, or in conjunction with, specific malfunctions as desired.

ELITE software is not compatible with Windows 8 or 10 operating systems. Our developers are working on a solution at this time.
ELITE does not guarantee compatibility with every computer system, even if specifications are followed. For this reason, we highly recommend purchasing your flight simulator computer through ELITE to ensure it is built to accommodate ELITE software requirements and compatibility. Please contact an ELITE Simulation Solutions representative for more information.
If you are unsure whether you need a replacement WIBU key or not, please contact ELITE by phone or email so we can verify this for you.
