2.75 hours

In today's environment, it's imperative to always know where you are ... and where you don't want to be!
Whether you're using VFR or IFR flight rules, Flying with the KLN89B GPS (formerly GPS From A to Z featuring the KLN89B) will introduce you to the wonders of GPS navigation. You'll learn to create, save, change and use flight plans with ease. Become a GPS expert and learn how to go beyond "Direct-To" and harness the power you now have with a GPS.
Learn GPS Approach Procedures
The FAA is turning more and more to satellite navigation and implementing new GPS procedures in both terminal and enroute airspace. An IFR approved GPS such as the KLN 89B (or the KLN 94) gives you the capability to use these procedures.
You'll learn everything you need for using GPS in the IFR environment ... including how to call up, activate and confidently fly IFR GPS approaches, DPs, and STARs. This course is perfect for both VFR and Instrument Rated pilots.

Helpful course
Good information but will require multiple viewings of select chapters before I fully "get it."

Flying with the KLN89B GPS
Had to go back and freshen up
Agreed to be a safety pilot and discovered the aircraft had this type older GPS unit. The crew at King were really helpful in getting me pointed to this course as a intro to the box. The course also includes some old basics of GPS approaches that is helpful in understanding how we got to where we are today.

Flying with the KLN89B GPS
Great explanations!
This is a worthy review of a very capable GPS, even though it's over 20 years old.  Not all of us have an opportunity to fly glass cockpits and a lot of trainer aircraft in the fleet still use the Bendix/King KLN series GPSs and will for years to come.

Course Completion Review
A VFR pilot, I'm mostly interested in learning to use the KLN89B in VFR now. Much of this course is dedicated to IFR work, which will be of more value later, but the basic information has helped me to absorb the columns of information provided in the Pilots Manual. Well worth the money.

Easy to follow
Nice course and great preparation for using the KLN89B...
