  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.

    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.

    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.

    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. You can also email us at custserv@kingschools.com - We have a full staff of pilots and flight instructors available to answer your questions. 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. How do I access my course completion certificate?

    Once you have completed all the lessons and answered all the questions in each lesson, you´ll be able to print out your completion certificate.

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

    You can 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

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.

Test completed.
I took the private pilot knowledge test yesterday. The King course Is excellent l and I was very well prepared for the test. One step closer to flying. This is an exciting adventure for a 58 year old!

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.

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.

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

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.

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. 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.

The Best Teachers
If you are planing to take a course in anything about airplane don't waste your time with any other schools. I tried few before ending up with the King's. Knowledgeable teachers you can find a lot. Teachers who know how to teach and make your learning enjoyable only KING's school can do that.

Great Course!!
I didn't have time to do a Part 141 ground school, so using this course prepared me for the Private Pilot Knowledge test. The material was laid out in an easy way to navigate and learn. After completing everything you'll get your test endorsement, I scored a 95% after going through all the questions a couple times. In addition to this course, I would also buy the FAA Knowledge Testing Supplement book (FAA-CT-8080-2G). It's difficult to plot your course with an image on the computer screen.

Little old, but good enough
The videos have all the information you need to pass. Some are extremely old (one refers to the Osprey as "the new tiltrotor that is going to be coming out") so you know they haven't been updated since the early 1990s. The information is still relevant, just old quality.

The course has glitches
The videos by John and Martha were excellent. Easy to understand, great explanations and not too lengthy so it is easy to digest material in small increments. However, there were numerous inconsistencies (have now been corrected) with the study questions for each lesson. The FAA evidently switched the numbering system on their illustrations and many of the questions did not have the updated figure numbers. This resulted in a lot of aggravation trying to learn basic concepts. I thought I'd have them figured out, but my answer would be wrong, and I would spend many frustrating hours trying to figure out why. It was only after I called them and explained the situation, did they review the question and agree that their illustrations had not been updated, and so the "correct" answers/explanations were not really correct. I called them at least 3 times, with 5 questions that had inconsistent answers. It was extremely frustrating, and they agreed. They course should have had better quality assurance. After the FAA changed the illustrations, the course should have been reviewed with a fine tooth comb to reflect those changes. But unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Taught me what I need to know
The local ground school courses are taught on Wednesday evenings--inconvenient for me. So my CFI recommended the King School. John and Martha taught me everything I needed to know to ace the FAA knowledge test on the first attempt.

Excellent course!
The King Schools private pilot ground school course was the perfect mixture of useful, real-world knowledge and test preparation for the written exam. The format of short videos with practice questions at the end of each video was very helpful in learning what you need for the test as well as retaining information applicable to actual flight training. The Ipad application synced seamlessly with the website for proper recording of segments watched and questions taken. I can vouch for the adequacy of the course for written exam preparation: I got a 98% on the knowledge test two days after finishing the course.

The website overall worked really well.
The website overall worked really well. The only problems I had occurred when I tried to use Google chrome to run the website. Some of the question text would merge and become illegible. Also, the main section titles were sometimes cut in half and were difficult to read. A similar problem occurred when I tried to use edge. This may be a problem with edge and Google chrome rather than this website but I thought it still might be worth mentioning.

Very Comprehendible. It was a challenge to do some of the calculation involving the maps on the computer screen. I do recommend this course for convenience purposes.

Great for test prep
This course does just what it says - it prepares you for the faa written test (and well too). That said, I would have preferred a little but of deeper explanation in a few topics that seemed to be taught just to get a right answer not as useful knowledge. This is fine, just know you might want to research the topics presented in this course a little deeper if you want a better understanding.

Amazing!
The Kings School program was a lifesaver! I learned everything I could have possibly needed to know quickly and easily and it made my FAA Private Pilot written Exam easy! The actual exam was just like all of the practice tests that this website provides for you after you complete the videos!

Passed with a 95%!!
The website is pretty good. I did have some trouble with some of the videos not loading well. Espcially the one about airport signs. I ended up using my wife's mac before it would work! I got confused by the menu layout for the classes. The reverse S shape is confusing. I would use something more simple and linear. The classes themselves are great. I'll definitely recommend you folks to others. Nice job.

I was happy to pass my test but had hoped for a better score. I knew weather was my weakest subject and it just so happened that I got a lot of weather questions. Luck of the draw I guess.

Awesome
The King school relieved my stress! This school would make any student pilot an Ace! I wish instructors would tell the students or there students this school is an option instead of waste money and time. I really have to thank Skyport in San Marcos Texas for telling me about this Course.

Overall very nice
This school helped me pass my written exam. The only minor problem I had with this school was that sometimes they explained things too much.

Not well enough prepared
The charts and weather related questions were rough. Overall though this course will prepare you enough to pass.

Your Course was Spot On!
The way you prepared me was awesome. I wanted to go back and check answers because I finished the written so quickly. But at the same time knew it was not necessary because when you read the question and the answer pops out because it is so obvious... Job well done. Thank you

A vital part of my success!
I started 6 weeks ago and today took my FAA Airman Knowledge Test. I began with zero aeronautical knowledge and was very intimidated by the prospect of studying to take such a test since I haven't done so since earning my college degree over 10 years ago. The King school "Get It All" package supplied everything I needed. It was also vital that I was able to download the entire course to my iPad using the companion app and complete it offline; if I had to be online at while studying it would have taken me much longer to get through the course.

Great Job keeping it interesti
Gave me all I needed to be a 75 day wonder. Took about 30 minutes once they got the endorsement right. They have not seen an AIGI endorsement. They had to call the FAA for clarification.
