VoiceFlight's VFS101 is the world's first speech recognition system to be certified by the FAA for use in civilian aircraft. The system allows pilots to enter waypoints and airways into their GNS430W/530W GPS units up to ten times faster than is possible using the tedious concentric knobs.
A short video demonstration is available to illustrate the exceptional speed, accuracy, and convenience of the VFS101 system. The true measure of the system, however, is reflected in the comments provided by customers already using the system for their routine flight operations.
VFS101 now certified with GNS430/530 Main Software 5.03September 17, 2013
VoiceFlight has received an amended STC that includes operation with Garmin's GNS 430W/530W Version 5.03 Main Software update. The new VFS101 software (Version 3.2.3) fully supports expanded flight plans (with 100 waypoints) and includes a new feature that allows pilots to omit intersection waypoints when entering a sequence of airways.
The Documents page of the VoiceFlight website has been updated with the new reference manuals for the amended STC. VFS101 units with the updated software are in stock and available for immediate shipment from our network of 75+ VoiceFlight Dealers.

VoiceFlight at AOPA Summit 2012
September 28, 2012
VoiceFlight Systems will be at AOPA Summit in Palm Springs, California from October 11th to the 13th. At the show, we will be introducing the VFSXP1, an Experimental / LSA version of the VFS101. It offers the same functionality as the VFS101, but at the low price of $995.
Additionally, we will be unveiling and demonstrating the new HELO101, a new version of the VFS101 pilot speech recognition system optimized for helicopter use. The HELO101 allows pilots to enter latitude / longitude destinations into their GPS and tune Nav/Com units without taking their hands off the primary flight controls.
Come see us in Booth 1507 if you are at the show. Click below to see a video demonstration of the HELO101.
New VFS101 features at Oshkosh
July 19, 2012
VFS101 for Non-WAAS GNS-430/530:
VoiceFlight is pleased to announce that the VFS101 software has been extended to support both WAAS and Non-WAAS (Legacy) GNS-430/530 navigators. The VFS101 feature set and operation on the Non-WAAS units is identical to the current WAAS offering. A fully operational Legacy version will be available at our Oshkosh booth for demonstration and customer trials.
The FREE software upgrade will be available to all customers this fall. VoiceFlight will begin supplying dealers with VFS101 units for use with Legacy GNS-430/530 units at that time. The revised software will operate transparently with either Legacy or WAAS GNS-430/530 units (but not a mixture of both). This means that if a Legacy customer subsequently decides to perform the GNS-430/530 WAAS upgrade, no changes will be required to the VoiceFlight system.
One of the most impressive and useful features of the VFS101 is the automatic expansion of Victor Airways. By popular request, the revised VFS101 software has been enhanced with additional support for Jet Airways and T/Q Routes. Again, this support is included in a FREE software upgrade that we will be demonstrating at our Oshkosh booth and will be available to all VFS101 customers this fall.
For VFS101 customers that fly outside of the United States, VoiceFlight has reached an agreement with Jeppesen to offer international navigation data for the VFS101. We have received FAA approval for this offering and hope to have it available on our website in September.
We will once again be located at booth 4026 in Hangar D for AirVenture 2012 at Oshkosh. Please stop by to visit if you are able to attend the show !
