  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.

Of course you can skip around if you chose but we recommend staying on the lesson path.

    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?

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?

As expected
I had a CFI giving me crappy ground school. Turned to king. Some of it is way too slow. Seems like more of Martha's things but I could skip ahead 30 seconds and she's still talking about the same reason.

Flying high!
I just finished the test this morning in under an hour. I made a 93 on the "new" test. This guy overheard my score and asked me what did I do to prepare because he failed it. Well, I studied with the King School! I walked in confident. I aced all of the calculations. Thank you, King School, for thoroughly preparing me for the written test. I'm flying high with my solid score!

Best Ground School Out There
I tried a number of online ground schools but none them actually covered all the materials needed to answer all the published test questions, I would have been better off falling asleep while reading the PHAK cover to cover. I still didn't quite feel up to taking the knowledge test and decided to give King Schools testp prep course a try. I cannot understate how much more complete the king schools videos were compared to everything else out there. Boosted by the confidence I got from the King videos I took the exam the day after complete the last lesson and got 100% of the question on my exam correct!

After taking this course I feel that I am ready to take the written test without worry. The memory tools and phrases that they use really help the information to stick.

Thank you Kings
Just passed my private pilot written exam with a 95%. I used another app based nationally know school for ground school. However, when I started studying for the test I felt very underprepared.

Just like the practice tests
I love that I was able to do the course at my own pace, review as often as I wanted, and take as many practice tests as I wanted to! The format of the questions being directly linked to the material made it really easy to quickly clear frustrations, and when I took the real test, it felt like another practice test.

Passed my Private Pilot Test!
Just did my test today, after 3 months of studies about 3x a week for 1-2 hours at a time. No problems passing on the first try. I used a combination of this course and a couple of books when I felt I needed to learn more on particular subject: Rod Machado's Private Pilot Handbook and Delia Colvin' s Aviation Weather made easy. I feel great! Now I can focus on finishing the flying this summer!

Super Preparation - Nailed it!
I've been preparing off an on (mostly off) since 1978 to get my Private Pilots Certificate. Life does take you on many adventures and sidetracks on your path to the License to Learn. A few years ago it was time to make it happen ... and the first step I took was to buy the King Schools Private Pilot Course and started studying - well before I found a flight school and CFI. The format with brief learning 'bites' - humor - the ability to access the material online anywhere and at anytime - made it a joy to study. The learning modules are always updating and evolving so I have always felt up to date. Tough concepts are made easy. Confidence is instilled by John and Martha. I took my knowledge exam today and whizzed through the exam confident that I would score well - confident that I would score really well. I made a 97 I only missed 2. My only disappointment was with me. Against the King's advice I changed an answer - from the correct one to the second best one - which was wrong. I'm more than satisfied because I know the King's gave me the knowledge and confidence to score really well with "no stress". I actually enjoyed taking the exam!

Very Comprehensive
I used the app for almost all of the training and it was very simple, intuitive, and user friendly. The ability to load and unload individual lessons was great so I could pick exactly what I needed without taking up too much storage on my devices. I also alternated between an iPhone and an iPad and the apps kept track of my progress across devices very well. Will definitely be using the Instrument school when I get to that point.

Great thorough groundschool
I used it for my PPL written test prep and found it to be a great learning aid over the years. The one thing you just can't underestimate is the ability to go back and revisit the training when you have an otherwise busy life. Without having to pay the monthly fees of other schools. You pay once and you have it for life with all the current updates included, as if you started today. Looking at the dates I started 9 years ago, but just didn't have the time go all the way. As time went on, I'd go back and learn a little bit at a time. Well, I went and took my test today and got 98%. In this last month of my real prep I also decided to try another new, currenlty very popular online school just to make sure I had my bases covered (this one had monthly subscription), and I found the explanations lacking depth and experience that you get here. Long story short, if anyone asked me about which ground school I would recommend, this would be it. And I will absolutely be using the following courses to augment my actual flight training going forward.

Awesome
This course along with your other DVD's allowed me to study with ease. After 3 months of studying every question over and over I achieved a score of 97% on my FAA exam. 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! Thank you King Schools!

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.

100% WooHoo!
John and Martha do an outstanding job preparing you for the Private Pilot Knowledge test. I took my exam yesterday and scored 100%. There were questions I had to spend some time thinking through, but King Schools had given me the tools I needed to figure them out. Well worth the money. On to my check ride! 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!

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.

The best way to prepare!
I've taken my Sport Pilot written test and now my Private Pilot written test, both times after using the King Schools courses. The online course is ideal for someone with a busy schedule like mine. 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.

Good but getting out of date
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!

Perfect Preparation Course
This course is very comprehensive and prepares you extremely well for the FAA Knowledge Test. I had not spent much time around aviation other than commercial flights and a few plane rides in my father-in-law's Piper Comanche. This course enabled me to score a 95% on the test!

Great Study Course
I found the King's Course to be a great tool for studying for my written exam. Most of the videos were easy to understand. Some of them, go a little fast for beginners. But, most were comprehendible. I passed my exam on the first try. So, I am a happy customer!

Good course, has issues
It's a good course overall. However, it has several of the figures that did not match the problems on the test questions this makes it very difficult to try and do the problems I think they should spend a little more time on quality assurance to make sure all the figures match the corresponding questions.

Amazing Online Course
I cannot begin to describe how satisfied I am with this course. In just two weeks I went from knowing less than a quarter of required material to acing my knowledge exam. The videos are very clear and I rarely had to search for explanations or was unsure of the material taught. The practice questions and exams were as close to the actual exam as you can get. I absolutely recommend this course to anyone in primary flight training that's looking for an affordable and quality online ground school courses.

Great Training
I am in training to become a pilot, and this was a great course. I had a coworker who used a different company and after looking at his content I am glad I went with the King School option. Not to mention all the other modules that will give me a practical overview so when I am in the cockpit I am already ahead of the curve.

Very Helpful!
I'm married with a wife and kids and a busy job in the construction industry, so my schedule is extremely unpredictable. I chose the online Private Pilot Ground School and Test Prep Course so I could study at my own pace any time I have my phone or I Pad. I really appreciate the whole course, but especially the mandatory practice tests at the end because they gave me terrific confidence before taking the actual test. I got a 90% the first try. Thanks John and Martha!

Course completion
I found the course very helpful. I wish that I had used the online version rather than the DVD computer-based. I had a computer crash and had to get the program re-set and re-do a lot of material to complete the program. While this was not a problem in itself, it took a lot of time, stretched out my completion time and had me spending more time re-completing the course than reviewing the areas I was weakest in. So, I recommend everyone use the web-based program!

Passed my written!
Well, I passed the written! At first, starting this journey to learn to fly, I was skeptical whether this wealth of knowledge was manageable as I was not able to attend a formal ground school. Then I found King Schools online ground school and their videos and to the point instruction really helped me achieve my goal. Thank you.

King Schools made it so that I could learn the knowledge needed for the FAA Knowledge Test at the pace I wanted to go.
King Schools made it so that I could learn the knowledge needed for the FAA Knowledge Test at the pace I wanted to go. It was very helpful taking practice exams set up the exact same way as the actual test. Answering questions after each section also helped to make sure I had really absorbed the material. Overall I do not think there is a more convenient and cost effective way to prepare for the private pilot knowledge test.
