KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Introduction INTRODUCTION Congratulations for choosing the Bendix/King KLN 94 GPS! Celestial navigation will now be a way of life for you. The phenomenal accuracy of GPS, along with the KLN 94’s user-friendly operation and color graphics display will make flying a delight.
Introduction KLN 94 SNEAK PREVIEW If you absolutely can’t wait to use your KLN 94 until you’ve read this Pilot’s Guide, this section is for you. This short section will teach you just enough to get going and then learn by doing. This operational preview assumes the KLN 94 has been properly installed, the unit was previously opera- tional in the same general geographical location, and that no peripheral equipment interfaced with the KLN 94 (such as external HSI’s, CDI’s,...
NAV 2 page if not already there. The NAV 2 page shows your present position relative to a nearby VOR. It may take a couple minutes for the GPS receiver to “wake-up” and determine a position. Verify that this position is correct before proceeding.

KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Chapter 1 System Components 1. KLN 94 SYSTEM COMPONENTS A basic KLN 94 system consists of a panel mounted KLN 94 GPS and a KA 92 GPS antenna. An altitude input is required to obtain full navigation and operational capabilities.
If an error is detected in the configuration data, a warning page stating Configuration Mem Error will be displayed during the KLN 94 start-up sequence, and the configuration memory will be set to arbitrary default values. See an authorized Honeywell Service center to correct the config- uration memory error.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Chapter 2 Data Base 2. DATABASE 2.1. FUNCTIONS OF THE DATABASE The database provides four primary functions. First, it makes pilot inter- face with the GPS sensor much easier. Rather than having to manually look up and then enter the latitude and longitude for a specific waypoint, it allows you to merely enter a simple waypoint identifier.
Chapter 2 Data Base The following is a listing of the KLN 94 database contents: AERONAUTICAL DATA AIRPORTS Identifier Name City, State or Country Use type (if heliports, military, or private) Latitude and Longitude Elevation Runway numbers, lengths, surfaces, and lighting Fuel availability Approach types available (precision, non-precision, or none) Radar approach/departure environment...

Chapter 2 Data Base 2.3. ICAO IDENTIFIERS Waypoints are stored in the KLN 94 database almost exclusively by their ICAO identifiers. ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) is an internationally accepted reference for the data. In almost all cases the proper ICAO identifiers may be taken directly from Jeppesen-Sanderson or NOS aeronautical charts.
IBM-compatible personal computer to update the internal memory directly via an interface cable that plugs into the data port on the front of the KLN 94. Method two utilizes Honeywell supplied 3.5- inch diskettes with the PC. The diskettes are not returned to Honeywell.
Chapter 2 Data Base 2.4.1. COMPUTER UPDATING OF THE DATABASE USING DISKETTES (ORS 02 AND HIGHER UNITS ONLY) Update information is sent to you on 3.5” disks. In order to use the update program you must have access to a computer having a disk drive capable utilizing 3.5-inch 1.44 megabyte high density diskettes.

Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 1. On/Off/Brightness knob – Used to turn the unit on and off and adjust display brightness. 2. Right outer knob – When the cursor is off, used to select the page type (e.g. APT, NAV, FPL, etc.). When the cursor is on, used to move the cursor from one position to another on the display.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide BASIC GPS OPERATION This is the first of four chapters specifically dealing with operating the KLN 94. In this chapter you will learn the basic operation of the front panel controls and then how to perform Direct To navigation (navigating from your present position direct to your desired location).
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation output displayed on the unit’s internal course deviation indicator (CDI) and provided to an external horizontal situation indicator (HSI) or CDI is five nautical miles (full scale sensitivity) left and right in Leg mode. The other modes are described in section 5.5 and chapter 6.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 2. Use the right inner knob to enter the current altimeter setting into the “Baro” field and then press the F button. (If the KLN 94 is inter- faced to a compatible airdata system you will not be able to enter data into this field.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation The KLN 94 has an internal battery powered calendar/clock, so the date and time normally don’t require setting. The battery has a life of approximately 3 years. In addition, the KLN 94’s system date and time are automatically updated very precisely when at least one satellite is being received.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide The KLN 94 is capable of displaying the following time zones: Coordinated Universal Time (Zulu) Greenland Standard Time (UTC - 3) Greenland Daylight Time (UTC - 2) Atlantic Standard Time (UTC - 4) Atlantic Daylight Time (UTC - 3) Eastern Standard Time (UTC - 5) Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 4) Central Standard Time (UTC - 6)
KLN 94 system time will auto- matically be corrected very precisely once a satellite is received. 7. To aid the GPS receiver in acquiring your position, it helps to have a reasonable idea of where you are, and the Initialization page is where you have the chance to set this initial position.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 10. The Database page will now be displayed with the cursor over Acknowledge?. Line 1 indicates whether an Americas, Atlantic International, or Pacific International aeronautical database is being used. If the aeronautical database (airports, navaids, approaches, etc) is current, line 2 will show the date when the aeronautical database expires (figure 3-18).
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation set the amount of fuel on board (FOB) and initializes the Auxiliary (AUX) 15 and 16 fuel calculator pages. Possible units are gallons (GAL), pounds (LB), imperial gallons (IMP), liters (L), or kilograms (KG). If you wish to manually set the FOB, use the right outer knob to move the cursor to line 2 and use the right inner knob to select the desired value.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 3.3. DISPLAY FORMAT The KLN 94 uses a color LCD. In normal operation, the display screen is divided into four segments (figure 3-24). When the map page (NAV 4) page is displayed the page bar is removed to maximize the height of the map.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation Display segment 1 changes somewhat when the map page (NAV 4) is being displayed. See section 3.11.4. Display Segment 2 (Page) Aeronautical information is presented on the screen in the form of “pages”. Segment 2 is where these pages are displayed. A page is a presentation of specific data in an organized format.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Display Segment 4 (Annunciations) Segment 4 displays annunciations associated with the operation of the KLN 94 (figures 3-30 and 3-31). Line one shows the WPT (waypoint alert) annunciation when approach- ing the active waypoint (see sections 3.10.3 and 4.2.2) or the SCAN annunciation when the scan function has been enabled.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3.4. BASIC OPERATION OF PANEL CONTROLS Remember that figure 3-1 is a fold-out page that you may want to refer to as you read this chapter. The KLN 94 has three knobs and eleven buttons which are used to per- form all operations.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Chapter Name/ Page # Range Page Type APT 1-8* Airport VOR 1-2 NDB 1 INT 1-2 Intersections USR 0-3 User Waypoint ACT ** Active Waypoints NAV 1-4 Navigation FPL 0-25 Flight Plan SET 1-14 Setup AUX 1-14*** Auxiliary KLN 94's which are not approved for IFR have 6 airport pages.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation last viewed—we’ll say the NAV 2 page. Turning the right inner knob one click clockwise or three clicks counterclockwise will bring you to the NAV 3 page. Or, from the APT 2 page you could turn the right outer knob four clicks counter-clockwise to get to the NAV pages.

Use the right inner knob to select the desired character (figure 3- 46), such as a K in the U.S., a C in Canada, a P in Alaska, an E...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide To see an example of a Duplicate Waypoint page, try entering the identifi- er “AC” as a Direct To waypoint: 1. Press D. 2. Select “AC” as the waypoint identifier (figure 3-48). AC is the full identifier of several waypoints in the KLN 94 database.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3.5. MESSAGE PAGE Whenever the KLN 94 wants to get your attention, the message prompt (a large yellow “M” on the right side of the screen) begins flashing (figure 3- 52). If you have a remote message annunciator in your aircraft, it will also begin flashing at that time.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 3.7. INITIALIZATION AND TIME TO FIRST FIX Since the KLN 94 stores its position and other required parameters in memory when power to the unit is removed, it is seldom necessary to aid the unit in reaching a NAV ready condition. The time required from power on until the KLN 94 determines its present position and is therefore ready to navigate is called “time to first fix.”...
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation To initialize the position from the SET 1 page: 1. If the cursor is not on the screen (figure 3-55), press the B but- ton to bring it on the page over the INIT POS field (figure 3-56). 2.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide NOTE: If the KLN 94 is in the Take-Home mode, you are allowed to enter the groundspeed (kt) and heading (°) fields in order to simulate flight (fig- ure 3-60). They are not used for actual initialization in an aircraft. However, entering a groundspeed will allow the KLN 94 to “fly”...

Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 5. Move the cursor one place to the right, and select an “E” (figure 3- 79). 6. Enter the “W” and “P” in a similar manner (figure 3-80). 7. Now, move the cursor one place to the right of the “P”...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 2. Unless the first word is greater than eight characters, it is usually not abbreviated. 3. Delete most punctuation such as periods and apostrophes. 4. Abbreviations for International are INTL, INT, and IN. 5. Abbreviations for Regional are REGL and REG. 3.9.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3.9.1. VIEWING THE NEAREST WAYPOINTS There are actually two waypoint scan lists for airports, VORs, NDBs, inter- sections and user-defined waypoints. These two lists are the “complete” list and the “nearest” list. The complete list contains all of the waypoints in the database for a waypoint type (all the airports, for example).
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide To specify the nearest airport criteria: 1. Select the SET 4 page and turn on the cursor (B). 2. Use the right inner knob to select the minimum length run- way desired for the airport to qualify for the nearest airport list (figure 3-86).
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3. Rotate the right outer knob clockwise to position the cursor over “1” (figure 3-87). As long as the cursor is left in this position, this page will update so that the nearest airport is always shown as the flight progresses.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Line 3: The altitude limits of the SUA. Line 4: The proximity of the nearest point on the border of the SUA, in the form of the absolute bearing, relative bearing, and distance to the SUA border.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation NOTE: In some areas of the world the KLN 94 provides the location of the nearest point of communication with a facility providing information (INF) or radio (RDO) services. Pressing the G button and selecting the FSS option will display two of the nearest points of communication with Flight Service Stations.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide The frequencies displayed on the nearest Center page are QuickTune frequencies. When the cursor is positioned over a frequency displayed on this page and the F button is pressed, the frequency is automatically inserted into the standby window of a Bendix/King KX 155A or KX 165A Nav/Comm.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3.10.1. INITIATING A DIRECT TO Now that you know the ground rules, let’s go ahead and try some practical examples. First, let’s say we wanted to fly directly to Lovell Airport in Chattanooga, TN. Its ICAO identifier is KCHA. To fly Direct To a waypoint (procedure 1): 1.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 7. Press F again to approve the displayed waypoint page. The screen will change to the NAV 1 page, and the selected waypoint will now be the active Direct To waypoint (figure 3-101). NOTE: In some cases during approach operations, the KLN 94 presents a page asking how a waypoint is used when the waypoint identifier is entered character by character.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation NOTE: If the KLN 94 is in the approach mode and this method is used to center the D-bar when the missed approach point is the active waypoint, then the approach mode will be cancelled and the KLN 94B will revert to the approach arm mode.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 3.11. NAVIGATION PAGES As you would expect, the NAV (navigation) pages contain information relating specifically to the KLN 94’s navigation capabilities. The KLN 94 has four NAV pages. The procedure for selecting specific pages, including the NAV pages, was described in section 3.4.1, “Page Selection”. 3.11.1.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation active waypoint while a “down” trian- gle (figure 3-109) indicates “from” the active waypoint. The word FLAG is displayed over the CDI when the KLN 94 is not usable for navigation (figure 3-110). Line 3: Numeric crosstrack correc- tion –...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 72° KPHX 3.11.2. THE NAVIGATION 2 (NAV 2) PAGE The NAV 2 page in figure 3-113 dis- plays the aircraft’s present position in two formats: (1) the radial and dis- tance from a nearby VOR and (2) latitude and longitude.

KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide The heading up mode orients the map with the aircraft’s heading as up. The heading up orientation is not presented as a choice if heading is not provided to the KLN 94. If a heading input is available to the KLN 94 then heading up is usually the best map orientation to select.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation scale. The scale may be changed from 1/2 NM to 1000 NM (or 1 km to 2000 km if km selected as distance unit on SET 12 page). In addition, an “AUTO” scale mode may be selected so that the map scale automatically changes to display the active waypoint and, if there is one, the next waypoint after the active waypoint (figure 3-136).The AUTO map scale may be selected in two ways: 1) by pressing either portion of the...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide When the KLN 94 goes into the approach active mode all land data, except for bodies of water, is automatically decluttered from the map. A “-L” is then annunciated. In the approach active mode the first press of the E button restores land data and subsequent presses work as described in the previous paragraph.
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation 3. (ORS 02 and higher) If the waypoint displayed in the scan field is actually displayed on the map, its map icon is encircled on the map (figures 3-141 and 3-142). Waypoints that are located close together on the map are easy to uniquely identify using this feature.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation For example if an approach has three IAFs but only one of the IAFs uti- lizes a procedure turn, the procedure turn will only be displayed when the one IAF is selected. In addition it is necessary to select a maximum map range scale to display holding patterns and procedure turns on the SET 7 page (see section 18.104.22.168).
Chapter 3 Basic GPS Operation Appendix D. The right side of line 4 will read HELIPORT if applicable, MILITARY if it is a military airport (Figure 3-147), and PRIVATE if it is a private use airport.

Chapter 4 Flight Plan Operation 4.2.2. TURN ANTICIPATION AND WAYPOINT ALERTING Prior to reaching a waypoint in the active flight plan, the KLN 94 will provide navigation along a curved path segment to ensure a smooth transition between two adjacent legs in the flight plan. That is, the CDI or HSI left/right deviation will be refer- enced to the dashed line in figure 4-33.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Although normally not recommend- ed, turn anticipation may be disabled on the Setup 10 (SET 10) page by pressing the B button and then rotating the right inner knob to change back and forth between ENABLED (figure 4-36) and DIS- ABLED (figure 4-37).
Chapter 4 Flight Plan Operation 4.2.4. COMBINING DIRECT TO AND FLIGHT PLAN OPERATION It is very common when using flight plan operation to use the Direct To function to proceed directly to a waypoint which exists in the active flight plan.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 188.8.131.52 Direct To Operation From The FPL 0 Page If you are presently viewing the active flight plan page there is an easy method of selecting the Direct To waypoint. To fly direct to a waypoint in the active flight plan while viewing the FPL 0 page: 1.
Chapter 4 Flight Plan Operation 4.2.5. VIEWING DISTANCE, ETE, ETA, OR DESIRED TRACK TO FLIGHT PLAN WAYPOINTS The right side of the active flight plan (FPL 0) page may be used to display (1) the cumulative distance (Dis) along the flight plan route from the pre- sent position to each flight plan waypoint, (2) the estimated time en route (ETE) to each waypoint, (3) the estimated time of arrival (ETA) at each waypoint, or (4) the magnetic desired track (DTK) for each waypoint.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 4.2.6 CHANGING THE SYSTEM TIME ZONE The ETA shown on the FPL 0 page is the for the system time zone. The system time zone may be changed from either the NAV 3 or SET 2 page. Section 3.2 gives a list of available time zones.

KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide (MSL) (MSL) 1° LONG. 5.2. ADVISORY VNAV OPERATION The KLN 94’s advisory vertical navigation (VNAV) feature allows you to program a descent or ascent path, and then provides you with an advisory altitude to fly that will provide guidance along the vertical path. For exam- ple, you can program the VNAV to provide descent guidance so that you arrive at your active waypoint or a waypoint in the active flight plan at an altitude that you specify.
Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation NOTE: There may be some difference (less than 100 feet) between the indicated altitude and the aircraft’s actual altitude if the altitude input to the KLN 94 is from an altitude encoder because these encoders only provide altitude in 100 foot increments.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide vertical speed, use the outer knob to position the cursor over the vertical speed field (figure 5-10). VNAV oper- ation is initiated by bringing the cursor over the vertical speed field. Or, by leaving the cursor off of this field, you may watch the required vertical speed increase as you fly toward your waypoint.
Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation NOTE: During your descent, check your actual groundspeed to verify that it is similar to the one you entered on the ALT 2 page. If it is different, you should enter your actual groundspeed so that the VNAV function will work properly.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide NOTE: The altitude alerting function of the KLN 94 does not meet FAR Part 91 for turbojet-powered civil airplanes. NOTE: Before you use the altitude alerting function, it is a good idea to make sure that the KLN 94 baro setting is current. To do this, press the A button and use the right inner knob to modify the baro setting.
Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation 6. Press the A button again to move on to the ALT 2 page (fig- ure 5-17). Only line 2 of the ALT 2 page is used for altitude alerting. The remainder of the ALT 2 page is used only for ver- tical navigation, or VNAV.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation and headphones. Or the KLN 94 may be interfaced with an external tone generator installed in the aircraft. In order to use altitude alerting, the KLN 94 must have an altitude input. If the altitude input is from an altitude encoder or from an air data computer not having a baro altitude output, then it will be necessary for you to man- ually input the proper altimeter setting in order to get accurate alerting.

Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation 5.5. NAVIGATION MODES The KLN 94 allows you to choose how the course to the active waypoint is defined. This is done by selecting between the two course modes, LEG and OBS. The LEG mode means that the course to the active waypoint is selected by the KLN 94, and is the default mode when the KLN 94 starts up.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide distance between two points located on the earth’s surface. In the case of Direct To operation, the “from” waypoint is not displayed but it is the point where Direct To operation was initiated. The course to fly while in this mode is referred to as the desired track (DTK).
Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation When this is done, the pilot must verify that the proper course has been selected by confirming the digital selected course readout dis- played on the KLN 94. In the OBS mode the selected course is always displayed on line 3 of the left side of the KLN 94 screen (in place of DTK).
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 5.5.4. SWITCHING FROM THE LEG MODE TO THE OBS MODE The following mode transition occurs if the KLN 94 is in the Leg mode and the mode is changed to the OBS mode: 1. The waypoint that was active in Leg mode prior to the mode change remains the active waypoint in OBS mode.
Chapter 5 Intermediate Operation 5.5.6. GOING DIRECT TO A WAYPOINT WHILE IN THE OBS MODE The direct-to function will select the OBS value that will take the aircraft from the present position direct to the active waypoint when the KLN 94 is not the displayed navigation source on the external indicator.

Appropriate alert voltage and alert delays will vary from aircraft to aircraft. If your KLN 94 is frequently giving you this alert message, it may become a nuisance, and you may desire to have your Honeywell Service Center adjust the voltage alert parameters.
GPS-derived altitude. The GPS receiver in the KLN 94 is capable of using signals from up to eight satellites to determine its position. A valid position may be deter- mined using as few as four satellites alone or three satellites with a valid electronic altitude input.
FAILR receiver failure In the initialization state the GPS receiver is in the process of initializing itself, collecting information such as the date, time, and last present posi- tion. Next, the receiver collects data from its own memory to determine which satellites should be visible.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide WARNING: Do not use the GPS-derived altitude for navigation. Due to many factors, the GPS altitude may be 300 feet or more in error, which is unacceptable for navigation. Lines 4 and 5 of the AUX 1 page display the KLN 94’s estimated position error.

KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 6. APPROACHES AND DP/STARS This is the last chapter on the operation of the KLN 94. In this chapter you will learn how to use the KLN 94 for non-precision approach procedures as well as departure (DP) and arrival (STAR) procedures. Note that only KLN 94s which are configured for IFR approaches are capable of perform- ing the procedures discussed in this chapter.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs KLN 94 is configured for IFR en route only, pressing the P button allows access to DP and STAR pro- cedures but not approaches (figure 6-4). Figure 6-4 6.2. NON-PRECISION APPROACH OPERATIONS Flying non-precision approaches using the KLN 94 is not in itself very diffi- cult.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 6.2.1. APPROACH MODE ANNUNCIATIONS In addition to the two course modes (Leg and OBS) described in section 5.5, there are also two approach related modes. At the time of the KLN 94 installation in the aircraft these two modes may be configured to be annunciated as one of the following two ways: APR ARM APR ACTV...
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 6.2.2. GENERAL PROCEDURE FOR NON-PRECISION APPROACHES Non-precision approaches will all have the general flow of events as fol- lows. Refer to figure 6-5. Load approach into flight plan CDI Scale Factor changing from ±1.0 nm to ±0.3 nm CDI Scale Factor constant at ±0.3 nm 70°...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 2. Transition to the approach arm mode. This will occur automatically when the aircraft is within 30 NM of the airport and there is an approach loaded into the flight plan (position B in figure 6-5). The CDI scale factor will change to ±1.0 NM over the next 30 seconds and the annunciator will indicate APR ARM (or TERM - see first note in sec- tion 6.2.1).
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs situation. By default, the KLN 94 will nominate the first waypoint of the published missed approach procedure when you have flown past the MAP and the D button is pressed. Remember to always refer to the paper chart when conducting a missed approach.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 3. The cursor will normally already be over the desired airport but if you wish to select another airport from the list use the right outer knob to move the cursor to the desired airport. Press F. NOTE: If the desired airport is not in the list, turn the right outer knob clockwise to move the cursor to the blank position at the end of the list.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs pressing F when the cursor is over MIFEV (figure 6-12). NOTE: If there is only one IAF for a procedure, then the KLN 94 will skip this step and go on to the next step 6.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide After the approach has been entered into the flight plan the KLN 94 checks to make sure that the resulting flight plan “makes sense”. If the KLN 94 detects any waypoints that are in both the en route portion of the flight plan and the portion that makes up the approach, then the following message will be given: *Redundant Wpts in FPL...
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs Another item that you should notice in the flight plan is the line that has *NO WPT SEQ on it (figure 6-16). This is what is referred to as a fence and the purpose of this line is to tell you that the KLN 94 will not automat- ically sequence past the waypoint that precedes the fence.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide • b will be a letter corresponding to the distance from the reference VOR. For example, G is the seventh letter of the alphabet so D234G would be a point on the 234° radial 7 NM from the reference VOR. DME arcs greater than 26 NM will have waypoints where the first two char acters are the first two letters of the DME identifier.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs To replace an existing approach: 1. Press the P button. If necessary move the cursor over Select Approach? and press F to bring up the PROC 2 page. 2. The cursor will already be over the airport associated with the approach loaded in FPL 0.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide procedure from the active flight plan. If the KLN 94 was in the approach arm or the approach active mode, then deleting the approach will cause the KLN 94 to change back to en route mode. This means that the CDI scale factor will change back to the default ±5.0 NM scale.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide plate for this approach (figure 6-21) to see what the procedure looks like. For this example it is assumed that you are on an active flight plan from Lakefront airport (KNEW) in New Orleans, LA with the final destination being the New Century Aircenter (KIXD) in Olathe, KS.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs NOTE: When FPL 0 is modified in any way, the KLN 94 orients itself on the nearest leg of the modified flight plan. In this case the leg from KNEW to MIFEV has become active. Since we have not yet been cleared to MIFEV it is necessary to do a Direct To operation to KIXD.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide KLN 94 screen to verify that LEG sequencing is selected. If the KLN 94 shares an HSI or CDI with other NAV sources, it is also good to verify that the NAV/GPS switch is set to GPS. As you approach MIFEV, the KLN 94 will provide waypoint alerting as indicated by the flashing WPT annunciation on the right side of the screen and the flashing waypoint...
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs The following steps would need to be performed if a missed approach is required. 10. Upon reaching RW17 and not seeing the runway you decide to per- form a missed approach. Remember, the KLN 94 will not automatically sequence past the missed approach point.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 6.2.8. APPROACH EXAMPLE 2: RADAR VECTORS When airports have an approach control that is in a radar environment it is likely you will receive radar vectors from the approach controller to inter- cept the course inbound to the final approach fix (FAF). The KLN 94 makes it easy to conduct approaches where vectors are provided.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide find out that vectors will be provided you can still easily activate the Vectors feature of the KLN 94 with the waypoint IAF loaded in FPL 0. 5. Press F to display the list of waypoints for the approach (figure 6- 34).
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 3. Press F to activate vectors. Activating vectors makes the FAF the active waypoint with the proper inbound course to the FAF (figure 6- 38). The VTF annunciation turns green when vectors has been activated. At this time the exter- nal Nav indicator should be set to 185°...
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 10. After a second missed approach you may select another approach at Lincoln or some other airport by pressing the P button to display the PROC 1 page. Since you don’t want to activate vectors this time use the right outer knob to move the cursor over Select Approach? and load an approach in the normal manner.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 6.2.9. APPROACH EXAMPLE 3: COURSE REVERSAL WITH OFF- AIRPORT IAF In the previous two approach examples we were able to leave the KLN 94 in the Leg mode all the way to the missed approach point. However, when the approach procedure includes a course reversal in order to get estab- lished inbound to the FAF it is necessary to utilize the OBS mode.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide This message provides a reminder that to fly a course reversal the OBS mode needs to be selected. Note from the approach chart that there is a NoPT Arrival for this approach if arriving on airway radial 301. If you are approaching OCN along this airway radial there is no need to perform a course reversal and you need to ignore this message.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 7. When the aircraft is 2 NM from the FAF, the KLN 94 will verify that the proper integrity is available. If integrity monitoring is available for the approach, then the KLN 94 will change to the Approach Active mode. This will be annunciated on the right side of the KLN 94 by APR ACTV (or APR).
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs For this example assume that the aircraft is approaching KMSA from the southwest. 1. Approximately 40 NM from the airport, load the approach using the procedure described in section 6.2.3. 2. When the distance from the present position to the destination airport reaches 30 NM, the KLN 94 will automatically arm the approach mode.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide NOTE: For ORS 02 and higher units the procedure turn will be displayed on the map (figure 6-44a) if config- ured to do so on the SET 7 page. See section 184.108.40.206 for information on displaying procedure turns on the map.

We will not use it in this example. Pull the right inner knob out and turn it to display MSAh, the missed approach holding point.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs and press F to display the list of approaches for KRWI. Move the cursor over VOR/D 22 and press F to bring up the list of IAFs (figure 6-47). 2. There are four choices for the IAF including Vectors.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 5. After the approach is loaded into the flight plan the KLN 94 may give the message: *Redundant Wpts In FPL Edit En Route Wpts As Necessary This message is given because very often it will be necessary to edit the active flight plan to ensure that proper waypoint sequencing occurs.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs • If F was pressed, then the KLN 94 will calculate an arc inter- cept point based on the point where the aircraft’s present track over the ground intercepts the DME arc. If necessary, do a Direct To operation to the new arc intercept point.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 13. Passing TYI the KLN 94 will sequence to CF22 which is depicted on the U.S. Government chart as 4 NM from TYI. The CF22 designation is shown on the Jeppesen chart. 14. After passing CF22 the KLN 94 will sequence to CRAKO the FAF. 15.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs • When non-approved approach is selected, a page as shown in figure 6-52 is dis- played to remind you that the KLN 94 can only be used to provide situational awareness for monitoring the approach. You must acknowledge the page by pressing F.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 6.2.14. APPROACH PROBLEMS Very rarely there will be a problem with the integrity of the GPS system while you are conducting non-precision approaches with the KLN 94. In some cases the KLN 94 will determine that there will not be sufficient integrity monitoring for the leg between the FAF and the MAP, or RAIM is not currently available.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs To perform a RAIM prediction on the AUX 3 page three pieces of informa- tion are needed. The first is the location that the prediction will be for and the second is the time for the prediction. The destination waypoint will, by default, be the missed approach point of an approach loaded in the flight plan.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 6. Turn the cursor off. 7. The RAIM calculation will usually take a few seconds before an answer is reached. During this time the AUX 3 page will be as shown in figure 6-55. 8. Once the RAIM calculation is complete, the AUX 3 page will indicate the results of the test graphically in a bar graph format.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs procedures require pilot action to ensure that the proper path is flown over the ground. The main purpose of loading a DP or a STAR into the active flight plan is to provide you with a quick way of loading a potentially large number of waypoints.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide NOTE: Normally, the desired departure airport will already be displayed with the cursor on it. In case it is not, move the cursor over the desired airport or, if necessary, enter the airport identifier in the blank field on the page and press F once to bring up the waypoint page for the airport and a second time to approve it.
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 6.3.2. SELECTING A STAR The steps required to select a STAR are very similar to those required to select a DP. The only difference is the order of the steps to define the STAR and where the STAR is loaded into the flight plan. The steps required to define the Glen Rose Five arrival (coded JEN5) with the Wink transition serve as an example of how to select a STAR.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide runway 17R so move the cursor over RW17R (figure 6-69). Press F. If the STAR does not require a specific runway the KLN 94 skips this step. 8. The KLN 94 now presents a list of waypoints that make up the STAR (figure 6-70).
Chapter 6 Approaches and DP/STARs 3. Use the right inner and outer knobs in the normal manner to define the desired waypoint. 4. Press F to display the waypoint page for this identifier. If the way- point is correct, then press F a second time to confirm the waypoint page.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 3. When the list of DP or STAR waypoints is displayed, the bottom of the page will now show REPL FPL 0 DP? for a DP or REPL FPL 0 STAR? for a STAR. Press F to replace the DP or STAR in FPL 0. 6.3.4.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide 8. Before reaching WAGES change to the Leg mode. This will allow automatic waypoint sequencing upon reaching WAGES. 9.

KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide APPENDIX E - LAT/LON CONVERSIONS The KLN 94 utilizes latitude and longitude expressed in degrees, minutes, and hundredths of a minute. You may occasionally see a document expressing latitude and longitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds. This table may be used to convert seconds to hundredths of a minute.
The complicated part is accounting for and correcting all the possible errors in the position. The GPS receiver is able to determine the time it takes a radio signal to travel from the satellite to the GPS antenna. Since this radio signal travels at the speed of light (approximately 186,000 statute miles per second), the time delay can very easily be used to determine the receiver’s distance...
Each of the 24 satellites transmits the almanac data for all satellites, so a GPS receiver has only to listen to one satellite in order to know which satellites are “visible” (in the sky) at that particular time.
RAIM prediction capability. GPS XPRESS™ CARD 8-CHANNEL RECEIVER The KLN 94 and KLN 94 use a Honeywell Bendix/King GPS receiver known as the GPS Xpress™ card. It was dubbed this way because it is identical in size to an everyday credit card, and its faster acquisition time than previous single-channel designs.
KLN 94 Pilot’s Guide APPENDIX G - OPERATIONAL COMPARISON: KLN 94 VS. KLN 89B If you are an experienced user of the KLN 89B GPS this appendix is for you. It identifies most of the significant operational enhancements of the KLN 94 compared to the KLN 89B.
