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 instrument rating Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA instrument rating Practical Test (a.k.a. Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Instrument Rating Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Instrument Rating practical test (a.k.a. Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 14 hours of video clips.
    • The Instrument Rating Practical Test Course contains approximately 4.5 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 +1 858 541-2000.

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

    You have lifetime access to your Instrument Rating 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. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

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!!!

hello - i really enjoyed your course. While taking the practice tests, i felt there were many redundant questions within singles tests. For example, on the random practice test, i was asked twice, consecutively, about outer markers. I feel the randomness of the questions could be improved, therefore, helping the student. thanks!

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.

Learned a Great Foundation!
King Schools is the only way to train for your ratings. I received a great learning foundation for my Instrument Rating. The FAA just revamped the IRA test questions in the middle of my course which made me a little nervous. After completing the IRA test today, I came to realize that King Schools prepared an outstanding foundation for me, so that I was able to answer any new question the FAA would throw at me with ease.

I used King Schools for my private, but when I started my IFR training, the 141 school I attended only used Gleim. I tried Gleim for several weeks, but it wasn't working for me. I paid for the King IFR training, and everything made sense! I'll be back for future training!!!

The BEST Self-Study course!!
I decided to try the Instrument Written course after I saw several previews of Martha and John King's series on YouTube and I was very happy with what I purchased! I think it's absolutely necessary to understand the basis of the knowledge exam's questions, especially for the written. I'm by no means a student that can absorb knowledge efficiently just by reading it, so getting the graphic explanation was a must. I did the Sporty's course for the Private Pilot several years ago, however it could get very dry for me. I think that the Kings have a natural talent at presenting these courses and it clicks much better for me. The question database is decent with the King's, but I highly recommend a secondary course like the Gleim or Sheppard Air (Sheppard Air has by far the most up to date database, but Gleim has better software). The reason I say this is because the FAA will often reword questions and add new, more confusing questions to their database in order to fool even the most experienced pilots. Although King Schools has an adequate database, it may not be enough to get a 90 depending on what the PSI/CATS gods randomly generate for you. However, I don't believe using just the Gleim or just Sheppard Air would be enough to pass unless you're an extreme memorizer. To each their own, and I definitely believe in the King system!!

The course contained sufficient quantities of questions that I went into the exam feeling well-prepared to pass the exam.
The course contained sufficient quantities of questions that I went into the exam feeling well-prepared to pass the exam. The questions on the FAA exam were slightly different than those presented by King, but the concepts were well-covered throughout the course. I liked that it was self-paced and the suggestions for Test Taking were very helpful. I plan to use King for any future endorsements.

Great course!
I highly recommend this course. I used it as a supplement to my instructor and hearing the information from a different angle made everything come together for me in a very short period of time. I feel like anyone could benefit from this no matter how much or how little that you know before starting. I learned a few tricks to better understand the material and how to understand the tricky questions that the FAA throws in there.
