Humor Helps You Learn
Humor is part of our style because it makes learning more enjoyable, but there´s always a more important point to humor: to make key concepts easier to remember.

  1. Is this course right for me?

    These courses are designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA private pilot Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA private pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. Private Pilot checkride).

    The King Schools pilot skills courses teach you not only the required skills that the FAA wants you to know, we teach you how to manage risks and how to handle situations that can arise unexpectedly during a flight.

    This package will save you money with your flight training as you will be steps ahead of your training reviewing & understanding techniques before your training flights.

  2. What are the system requirements for this course?

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

    DVD for Windows media requires a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

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

    To access course content from a smartphone or tablet you must purchase the online version of the course or package.

    Apple iPhone and iPad
    We recommend using the Safari browser.

    Free bonus! You can download your lessons and take them later on an iPad or iPhone—even when not connected to the Internet. The free King Schools Companion app allows you to view and complete lessons in your course when no Internet connection is available. The app will automatically sync progress between all of your devices when your iOS device returns online. The free app is available through the iTunes App Store by searching for "King Schools Companion."

    Follow the steps below to access your courses on your iOS device offline:

    Android
    Your course is compatible with the Google Chrome browser on your Android device. The Chrome browser is available for free download from the Google Play Store by searching for "Chrome".

  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 Interactive Video Ground School and Test Prep 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 Private Pilot 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.

    DVD for Windows Media - Your disc-based course is always up-to-date when it is shipped from KING. You can subscribe to our update subscription service at an additional charge and we will send you "hotsheets" whenever questions change.

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

    First, select the "Click HERE to Start" menu icon on your Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course home screen. From there, you will learn how to use the course effectively with and gain insight to the features and benefits of the course. Just follow the path from start to finish; it´s that easy. Of course you can skip around if you chose but we recommend staying on the lesson path.

    As you begin your flight training lessons, you will want to review the pilot skills courses as they will tie into your practical flying.

    Once you have passed the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Private Pilot Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Private Pilot practical test (a.k.a. Private Pilot checkride).

    Some lessons will be more challenging than others. The advantage of having a home study course is you can repeat any lesson over and over again. You can always call or send us feedback about concepts or questions for further clarification.

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

    • The Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 13 hours of video clips.
    • The Private Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 4 hours of video.
    • Each pilot skills course vary in running time from 34 minutes to 134 minutes. On average, each course is approximately an hour.

    King Schools courses are self-paced so completion time will vary from person to person. Some folks spend a full week to complete the course and others will take longer depending upon how much time they have allocated for their studies. If you have 10-15 minutes of time, you can complete a course lesson.

  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.

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.

    King Schools Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains a text question explanation icon. that contains a thorough explanation of the test questions. Click on the icon when you are in the question review that follows each lesson segment and you will have a pop-up window containing a thorough explanation of the test question.

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

    You have lifetime access to your Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course. Remember, with the online media, the course is also automatically updated and will always be current.

  9. How do I receive my endorsement to take the FAA Knowledge Test?

    Once you complete the three practice exams with a score of 70% or higher, you can print out your endorsement.

  10. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?

    Check the FAA.gov website at http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/media/test_centers.pdf to schedule your test at a testing location near you.

  11. How do I find a FAA Medical Examiner to schedule my physical?

While my stomach was feeling some spatial disorientation, I relied on the tools this program gave me to see me through. This course gave me the knowledge I needed and the confidence to get the job done. I plan on continuing to use this program as I gain more experience in flight as a great refresher!

Getting kind of stale.
I loved that I could study at my own pace. Many of the modules were good, but some are getting kind of OLD. Time to redo them for the 21st Century. I got access to the Gleim online resources with my Private Pilot Kit from my local flight school and I'm glad I also used them in test prep. If I had relied solely on King, it's likely I would have failed my written.

Enjoyable course
I fly a C172 so much of the ongoing commentary was very helpful for me personally. Since some of the flight characteristics and flight adjustments are different from aircraft to aircraft (I do not have an autopilot, for instance) so some explanation that would cover other configurations or instruments would be helpful, Otherwise, the experience was excellent.

I'm preparing for that with the King Schools course too and expecting the same exceptional preparation. I want to go into the check ride with the same level of confidence I had going into the written exam. Thank you John and Martha!

Private Pilot FAA Practical Test (Oral Exam & Flight Test) Course - Online

 

The course videos and instruction were great.
The course videos and instruction were great. However, I tried to learn along without a E6-B flight computer or a plotter which made anything chart related much more difficult. Also, the charts were very difficult to try and read using the computer screen. If, as part of your course could charge a bit more and include the flight computer, plotter and printed copies of all associated figures and diagrams so that students could actually draw on them I think you could promote better learning. Overall, great course, I learned a lot.

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

Fun and effective
I learn well in traditional classroom type instructions, and the King online course is the perfect 21st century version of that. The amount of illustrations and actual footage used alongside the verbal instruction is very high, which I am sure will help to retain the information long term and not just for the exam. I wasted some time with free youtube videos before buying the King ground school. This is a comprehensive ground school and money well spent, as indicated by my 100% test score on first try.

Thorough Simulated Checkride
The oral part of this simulated checkride is outstanding: in-depth along with excellent insights from the DPE. Only part missing is from the flight portion. Would prefer more outside views of the maneuvers, not from inside the cockpit. Also interior camera views of the panel would enhance John's explanations. All in all, great video worth watching and taking notes on. That will be what I do when watching a 2nd time.

Stalls and Spins
If there is anything that gives student pilots apprehension, it has to be landings and stalls/spins. The King stalls/spins course goes a LONG way toward teaching the student how and why stalls and spins happen and what to do about them. Of course, dual instruction will also be necessary to learn the feelings as the aircraft approaches stalls, but the King course allows learning in those situations without fear. Great Job, John and Martha!

I was able to return to lessons whenever time allowed and did so in a carefree relaxed way. The content was clear and informative. It both taught me what I needed to know for actual flying and prepared me for the written test.

Overall, I thought the training was good and I did learn most everything I needed to pass the exam from King Schools. I did however, supplement my test questions with the 2017 Private Pilot Test Prep Study & Prepare book (ISBN 978-1-61954-351-5) and I'm glad I did.

Great course!
The course was easy to follow and prepared me very well for the exam. It was especially convenient to load the course on my iPad for viewing away from home. Thanks for helping me pass my written exam!
