Reality XP sets new standard for Microsoft® Flight Simulator 2004

Reality XP – Best-in-Class GNS now flying!

(March 5, 2005) – Montreal, QC CANADA. Reality XP releases its new GPS Simulations, the Flight Line 430XP 2005™, the Flight Line 530XP 2005™ and the GNS Professional Expansion Pack!

The Flight Line 430XP/530XP is a comprehensive full-featured radio and navigation stack. Its modern components perfectly replace the radio stack equipment of the default Flight Simulator airplanes, or any additional third party airplane.

With Flight Line Avionics, you will be flying a simulated avionics package capable of providing the same features and benefits as the real avionics. The Reality XP GNS package is so realistic that pilots can use it as a training tool to familiarize themselves with the workings of the actual equipment. Each button and knob is fully functional and performs identically to its real-world counterpart.

Introducing our new Gns Core XP engine designed with minimal performance overhead, a new Gns Configuration application for quick and easy integration to any aircraft panel, and offering the most extensive feature set of its kind, the Reality XP Gns 2005 is an unmatched offering for the Flight Simulation enthusiast and the Pilot in simulating nearly 99% of the real Garmin Ltd GPS!
