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 private pilot Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA private pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. Private Pilot 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.

  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:

  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.

  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 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.

    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 Private Pilot Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Private Pilot Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Private Pilot practical test (a.k.a. Private Pilot 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 Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 15 hours of video clips.
    • The Private Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 6.5 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.

  9. How do I receive my endorsement to take the FAA Knowledge Test?

  10. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?

I passed the Written!!
I wish I had you two for my college courses. You two are fantastic teachers. Logical, to the point, lively, great context, sincere and delivered with an inspiring love of aviation. It was the first course that actually taught the material in the manner that was focused on both the body of knowledge required to be a safe pilot AND to be successful in taking the FAA test. I hope to be able to meet you someday. It would be an honor.

Vision Waiver-SODA student!
This course and video package has been a life saver for me in keeping current and progressing at a slow/steady pace, as I navigated my way through completing a Statement of Demonstrated Ability (SODA waiver), Special Medical Flight Test for uncorrectable 20/400 vision in my right eye. If you're considering flying and you've got a bad eye (Amblyopia specifically), you MUST pre-plan for the SODA checkride! I was ready to solo and had not completed my medical, and got a very unpleasant surprise that seriously delayed my training. So- if you have a vision problem, start on your medical BEFORE you begin flight training as you'll be able to combine your "solo" with your SODA checkride, because landing the airplane is a requirement to proving you can see! :) King videos and test prep have kept me in the game even after major disappointment and facing 100 reasons to just put flying on hold. Thanks for having such a complete and self-directed program available!

Almost feel like it's cheating
This course is absolutely one of the best, most comprehensive sources of preparation material you can find. The format and material presented are a great help in retaining the information needed to become a safe and proficient pilot and more importantly it helps to gain a higher level of understanding of the risk factors involved in each phase of flight, including mitigation strategies for those risks. Don't hesitate to buy this course, even if you're already a licensed pilot!

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!

Absolutely Top Notch Course
I decided to purchase the King Private Pilot Ground School Course. It suited my needs and availability perfectly, and allowed me the ability to study at my pace. Both John and Martha have a very efficient and unique method of explaining and applying concepts.

Passed with a 92%!
King's courses covered all the bases for the written exam. I went in feeling very confident that I knew what I needed to know. Many of the examples covered in the King's course were covered on the actual exam. I walked away only missing 5 questions. Thanks Kings!
