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?

    Any device with an Internet browser and broadband Internet connection.

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

    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:

    • After you have created your iLearn account by following the instructions in the email you'll receive after you complete your order,
    • Download the King Schools Companion app through the iTunes App Store onto your iOS device while you are connected to the Internet.
    • Once your course(s) have finished loading, you can start studying 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?

    Your online course is always current and kept up-to-date. Courses are automatically updated with the latest information, rules and regulations 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 on 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.

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

    First, select the "Your Success Begins Here" 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 lessons.
    • The Instrument Rating Practical Test Course contains approximately 7.5 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 +1 858 541-2200.

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.

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 Online 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?

    Just make sure the email address in your King Schools iLearn account matches your WINGS account. We will automatically grant WINGS credit when you complete the course. For more information, click here.

  11. Now that I finished the course, what´s next?

Weather(pun intended) you are looking to clear some cobwebs in your knowledge. Or are looking for a no nonsense layman approach, this is the course for you.

I went over this program 3 times ( I am obsessive compulsive) and did all the available questions. I made sure I reworked each problem even if I remembered the answer. It worked.

Good, but out of date
There are indeed some good practices stressed in these videos however, I was disappointed that, for the money, no effort was made to bring these videos or any information up to date. That means this video does not really prepare one to function in today's ATC environment. I would rather get a refund and put the money towards something more current. For the record, I'm a 5000 hour ATP but have been away from IFR so I hoped this would shake the cobwebs loose. It did but we don't fly in the same environment we did in the 90's.

Good Course Overall. Outdated
I would recommend this course to anyone that needs to get training to pass their instrument knowledge test course. With the recent changes that the FAA has made to these tests, not all information is included in the course. I took my test today after cramming for a week and passed. I didn't get as high of a score as I would've liked but this course did it's job.

Updates to course helped alot!

Got it done
The King School IFR course gave me the flexibility I needed to learn at home and at my own pace. I'm withholding 1 star only because of how tough the FAA exam was, compared to King's practice tests. The FAA test has some really confusing choices. Still, I did pass it on the first try thanks to Martha and John King.

80% on IRA and 86% on FII
Using this and Gleim...I just passed the IRA with an 80% and right after took the FII and got an 86%. There were about 12 questions that I never saw from either studying source on the IRA. Overall, I started studying the Gleim book and watching the King videos exactly a week ago and passed two tests 7 days later. Felt like I could have done better on the IRA and most of the questions I got wrong were not in the King videos nor the Gleim book.

Totally worth it
A must to further prepare you for your practical test. It gives you the chance to witness first hand what you could experience in the real test without having to risk anything. A small price to pay to avoid those embarrassing moments when you just didn't know what they could ask you in the test. It is definitely safer too, in the comfort (and privacy) of your iPad/desktop.

Great IRA checkride prep!
I used a similar course from King to prepare for my Private Pilot checkride (to great success), and I gotta say that the instrument rating course is just as clear, comprehensive, and practical as the private. It would have been nice, though, if they demonstrated all approach types (including -- gasp -- NDB approaches), and perhaps varied the use of Jeppeson (clearly favored by Martha) vs government IAP charts. Otherwise, no complaints!

I took an in-person instrument ground school about nine years ago, and I have to say that I have learned more from the King instrument ground school that I did in the in-person one. Some of the segments are a little out dated, but the information throughout the course is very valuable and still practicable for today instrument flying. I highly recommend it.

Out of date; covers material
The King Schools course covers the material and has numerous practice exams necessary to study for and pass the instrument written test. I was frustrated by the blurry and antiquated images and user interface that was not mobile friendly, antiquated in design and functionality, and often very frustrating. The course is effective at providing all the FAA questions and getting an endorsement.

Really Nice Refresher!
Really nice refresher course! With over 4000 hours of flying Part 121, Part 135 and Part 91, it's always nice to come back and take a refresher course like this! Doing the radar course next!

Very good
Very informative. Enjoyed the lessons. Taking this course in conjunction with an instructor ground school and the Kings explain things in a more understandable way.

Tough and challenging
I have taken the instrument ground school at my VA accredited college. They use a curriculum based on the JEPPESSEN text books. I found the college course confusing, having outdated material, and lacking any explanation. YOUR course broke everything down, explained it thoroughly, and was much more informative. The only thing better would be to sit in the same room with John and Marthe for instruction.I give the course high marks and praise. I'd recommend this course to anyone. MONEY WELL SPENT!

Oldie but Goodie
The videos in this series are informative, but dated. The information is good, but the old videos that were recorded when John and Martha King were younger are looking very out of date. The online graphics are unreadable on the test questions. The new HD video segments are much better. It is nice to see what John and Martha look like now too, rather than 30 years ago. They have aged well. Even the FAA has updated the graphics in their test supplement to include color and sharp clear printing. The video series needs to reflect that overall improvement that is a result of modern technology and printing.
