Grateful for updated material!
I was one of the many students who got caught in the change of the instrument rating from the old PTS to the new ACS. I took the now obsolete written exam earlier this year and did well (thank you King!) and had my instrument checkride today under ACS. About a month or so ago when I started getting serious about my preparation for the checkride, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the course content had been updated to reflect the new ACS standards. Watching Martha go through the checkride helped me know what to expect and gave me confidence that I could do it. I passed my checkride today and have fulfilled my dream to become an instrument pilot!!!

Great practical tutorial
Very well done video especially walking us through the actual entirety of what goes into the practical. I think a lot of emphasis was put on flying the G1000, so would be good to add some IFR flying using just VORs as well.

The course is comprehesive
The course was great quality; it had nice HD visuals. The content was comprehensive and the flight examiner was helpful, as was Martha. The only reason I had gave a 4 star rating was because I had to manually switch the iPhone sound on for the sound to work, and it didn't continue playing when leaving the app like the podcast or music app does. That would have been helpful because I could keep listening while pulling up approaches on foreflight and following allowing.

Instrument Rating Practical
I am compelled to congratulations myself on Completing "Your Instrument Rating Practical Test Course" This was a super course and both the participants were very knowledgeable and very professional while showing us the intricacies of the Instrument Rating Practical Test Course. Any student pilot especially any Private Pilot with aspirations for becoming instrumented rated will learn much from the great King School Course will profit from this wonderful and knowledgeable course.

You make it interesting & FUN!
I tried another ground school course and it was drudgery and boring. It felt like work. I had to make myself sit down and go through a little of it. It would literally put me to sleep quickly. I returned the other course yesterday and purchased the KING course. I have just finished the entire course in just a little over 24 hours. You make learning flying both fun and interesting. Your style of teaching has a way of sticking to the mind and the heart. I appreciate what you have done for aviation in general and for me. Thank you. Sincerely, George Hancock

King School Course is best
I got my PPL with King School course materials. I have also used King School course materials for the IFR rating prep. I passed my Knowledge test easily after finishing the King School Knowledge Test course(s). I am ready to take my IFR Practical Test next week. I am confident that I will get my IFR rating. Without King School courses, I doubt I would be this confident and successful. I also believe that I will keep watching the DVDs even after I get my IFR rating; they are great for refresment training. Many thanks to King School!

PTS
Very well designed course I am ecstatic that I can go into my PTS and pass with any worries. One note though, on the NDB approach segment the video kept restarting once it gotten to about 30 seconds to one minute then it finally stop and played through the entire video. Nonetheless, overall it was an excellent well thought out and well presented course. I think I am set for my PTS.

Phenomenal course! Fun too!
Yet ANOTHER great course with loads of truly practical advice and know-how from the king and queen of US aviation. Sure, the graphics and jokes could use a little updating - which is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars. But overall, I keep coming back to King when I want to learn anything new in aviation. Keep the great material coming! Oh, and the only other reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because there isn't a way to play it on an iPad without being connected to WiFi.
