RealSimGear Releases G500 Avionics Suite

Best known for their highly accurate flight simulation hardware often used for flight training, RealSimGear has in recent days released the Garmin G500 avionics addon for X-Plane 11. It is the first standalone software product released by the company.

The addon basically integrated the Garmin G500 avionics suite to the supported aircraft of your choice. These aircraft include, for example, the default Cessna 172, or TorqueSim’s BN-2 Islanders. The developers promise to deliver more integrations in the future. The addon is of course compatible with RealSimGear’s G1000 PFD/MFD.

The G500 Avionics Suite is also compatible with the RealityXP GTN and GNS avionics and features detailed map views showing the flight plan, traffic, terrain, airports, airways, and more. The developers did their best to recreate the G500 avionics as accurately as possible for the best immersion and ability to train real-world procedures.

If you want to purchase the addon, you can do so exclusively through the X-Aviation store for $49.95 which is equal to about €42.75.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
