King Schools has trained 1 out of every 2 pilots!

  1. Is this course right for me?

    This course is a part of the Cessna Flight Training System. It works best if you are training at a Cessna Pilot Center and you flight instructor is using the included course syllabus. It will prepare you for your FAA Commercial Pilot knowledge test and also includes video demonstrations of each commercial pilot flight maneuver, allowing you to show up fully prepared for your lessons.

  2. What are the system requirements for this course?

    Online course media requires a PC or Mac computer with a broadband Internet connection.

  3. Can I use my smartphone to view the course materials?

    Your course is compatible with the web browser on your Apple or Android device. In addition, the free King Schools Companion app allows you to view your online course(s) on an iPad or iPhone when not connected to the Internet. The free app is available through the iTunes App Store by searching for "King Schools Companion."

  4. Are the courses current?

    KING courses are up-to date with the latest information and subjects areas the FAA wants you to know. KING online courses contain FAA-style questions which are representative of all the subject areas the FAA tests.

    Warning: You can’t just memorize test questions and expect to pass your FAA Commercial Written Test. Why? The FAA used to make their test question banks publicly available; however, they have not done so for many years. In fact, the FAA has recently gone through their entire database and changed every single test question and answer in order to eliminate test question memorization. No one, including test prep educators, has access to the FAA question banks. To be a safe and competent pilot-in-command, and to pass your required tests, there is no shortcut. You must acquire the necessary pilot knowledge.

    Online Course Media - Your online course is always up-to-date as the course is automatically updated whenever changes occur.

  5. Is there a particular order to follow? Are some lessons easier than others?

    Just follow the phases from start to finish; it´s that easy. Of course you can skip around if you chose but we recommend doing the phases in order.

  6. How much time will it take to complete the course?

    The course contains over 11 hours of video instruction. King Schools courses are self-paced so completion time for each course will vary from person to person.

  7. What if I have a question? Is there a CFI available?

    If you still have a question about your course, you can call us during our normal business hours at 800-854-1001 or +1 858 541-2200. You can also email us at custserv@kingschools.com - We have a full staff of pilots and flight instructors available to answer your questions. Please be aware that it may take 24-48 hours to respond to an email so please call us if you need immediate attention.

    Of course, when you take a King Schools course, it is like having a flight instructor with you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can review the material as often as you like at any time. Sometimes, you may want to review a video segment a couple of times.

  8. How do I access my course completion certificate?

    Once you have completed all the lessons and answered all the questions in each lesson, you´ll be able to print out your completion certificate.

  9. Can I still access the course material after I complete the course?

    You have lifetime access to your courses. Remember, with the online media, the course is also automatically updated and will always be current.

I know and understand not much in the aviation industry has changed since the airing of these videos, but it is seriously time to start updating these old VHS streamed videos to more modern specifications. A majority of your customers are millennials like myself, and personally, I find it very difficult to engage or pay attention to these extremely dated videos. The graphics and charts are so bad!!! It's 2017 now, time to add more attractive pictures, graphs, charts, and other material to explain an example. I only did the King's ground training because my flight school requires it. The focal points and lessons taught were well spoken and said. My main complaint is outdated videography and losing the focus of younger, technically advanced generations. John and Martha age in and out 30 years within multiple modules. Not worth the high dollar amount for these historic videos in my opinion.

The greatest of all time
No one explains anything aviation related as well as John and Martha King. I've learned so much from them.

Good information, great base
Great training course, however the videos are old and I think some of the information and charts used by the FAA might be outdated. I also used the ASA prep to study for the commercial written.

Excellent Course
A fantastic course for preparation for the commercial test, derived from in-depth knowledge held by aviators who have been in the field for many years!

15 Years of the King's
15 years of training from the King's and there is just something comforting from the presentation of materials, as well as the corny jokes.

Very outdated!!
4:3 video and the quality really date these videos. It's very expensive for this program so expectation is high. Using the same videos from 1985 isn't fair if you're using 2016 prices!!!! Aslo John said the PTS was in my kit, but an actual printed PTS was not included.

Good course
Great course overall but could use a little more current flight videos!

Cleared for Hire—Commercial Pilot Course - Online


Material is presented in a simplistic manner, making it easy for the viewer to follow along. However, it's obvious that these videos were created some time ago. This creates a disconnect between the videos and today's world. (Obvious through their appearance, references, and videos).
