Belsimtek’s NS 430 Navigation System Now Available for DCS: Mi-8MTV2

Purchase from DCS e-shop

Developed by Belsimtek, The NS 430 GPS navigation system, is an optional add-on module for DCS World aircraft. Starting with DCS: Mi-8MTV2, the NS 430 provides powerful, yet intuitive, navigation and radio communications options to supplement the navigation and radio systems already integrated into our aircraft. The NS 430 is just one of several, planned expansions for the Mi-8MTV2. The NS 430 is particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.

The NS 430 was introduced in 1997 and quickly became aviation’s most popular GPS. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) capability was added in 2006. The sharp, clear display and intuitive button layout of the NS 430 made it the standard for general aviation around the world.

The DCS NS 430 includes:

  • Dozens of user interface screens
  • Chapter and Page layout functionality
  • Moving map capability
  • Serves as both a communications radio, navigation radio, and GPS receiver
  • Concentric knobs are used to navigate the various pages, scroll through data, and enter information
  • Options to configure to displays based on user preference
