Introduction – BendixKing KLN 89B - Pilots Guide User Manual
KLN 89/KLN 89B Pilot’s Guide
Congratulations for choosing the Bendix/King KLN 89 or KLN 89B
GPS! Celestial navigation will now be a way of life for you. The phe-
nomenal accuracy of GPS, along with the KLN 89(B)’s user-friendly
operation and graphics display will make flying a delight. Not only will
the KLN 89(B) help you to navigate more easily and more accurately,
its trip planning features, air data calculations, and other useful fea-
tures will make you feel like you’re flying with a true flight
In addition, KLN 89B may be IFR approved for En route, Terminal,
and Non-precision Approach operations. We think you’ll find that
having an abundance of navigational data (not to mention a moving
map!) available to you will make non-precision approaches more pre-
cise and more enjoyable.
This Pilot's Guide will be of great help to you. It is written in plain,
simple English and it assumes you are not an experienced user of
GPS or other type of long range navigation equipment. If you are
experienced, so much the better. This Pilot's Guide also includes
hundreds of sample screen figures and other illustrations to make
your learning easier. It is designed so that you can start at the front
and progress in the order presented; however, you may want to skip
around and learn things in your own order. Also, on page iv, there is
an index of frequently used procedures which will help you find the
page that describes how to do exactly what you want to do. There
are also several appendices in the back of the manual that you may
find useful from time to time.
Be sure to keep this Pilot's Guide handy with you in the airplane. It is
designed to fit easily in the glove box, or in the seat pocket. The KLN
89(B) is very simple to operate, but the Pilot's Guide can sure be of
help to you.
One last thing. Don't get so involved in learning to use the KLN 89(B)
that you forget to fly the airplane. Be careful, and remember to keep a
close eye out for other aircraft.
