I wanted to let you know that due to continuous increase in raw material and internal components costs, we will be increasing prices for both G1000 to $650 and GNS 530 to $280. Please also keep in mind that we've incorporated many improvements to our both G1000 and GNS 530 hardware, firmware and software which definitely made it an even better product but increased the production cost.
As we want to give everybody a chance to make a purchase at pre-increase prices, we will be making the price increase affecting August 12 (Friday).
One of our company's main goals is to keep the prices of flight sim hardware reasonably priced to allow more pilots to take advantage of "like real life" avionics either if you are a real life pilot or a flight sim enthusiast. I think we still deliver on the promise not to change our prices in the last 2-3 years and continue pricing our products very competitively.
We also appreciate all of the great support by the flight sim community and we will continue to look into ways of optimizing our production, continue improving our existing products and releasing more great products in the future.
Thank you again for your continuous support and understanding!
