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.

    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 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.

  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 13 hours of video clips.
    • The Private Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 4 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.

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

    You 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.

  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. 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.

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

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.

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

Magnificent Prep!
I am less than 96 hours away from my check ride and, quite frankly, offered myself no hope of passing. After watching this King prep course, I now feel like I've a least a fighting chance of passing on my first attempt. As John said at the very end of the course, "Have fun!" Why else do we GA pilots fly?

Martha and John present the materialin a way that someone who is having trouble with landings, can actually understand. They also gave me confidence because they discussed and pointed out the things I was doing right and doing well. They made me actually look forward to the next video in the lesson.

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.

A Course to Ease your Nerves
This course was excellent in introducing the new ACS standards and how to deal with them on the checkride, especially because flight schools are still working on the transition to the new standards. I am glad to have made the purchase because it lessens the "guinea pig" feeling of being among the first applicants to test using the new standards.

Saved By the Video
This is a refresher for me, but way back when I was working towards earning my license, the very first time after I soloed, I accidently entered into a spin. Since my training aircraft was not certified for spins, I never had the opportunity to practice or even see what a spin feels like. But, thanks to the Kings and their videos on spin training, I knew the steps to take and I recovered from my first spin....thank you

First Look At New ACS Standard
Worth the time to get to see a new Course that outlines the Private Pilot Airplane Airman Certification Standard established in the summer of 2016. This course emphasized the ACS Tasks which consist of the OBJECTIVE of the task, REFERENCE materials, KNOWLEDGE base expected to be learned for each task, RISK MANAGEMENT possibly associated with the tasks and finally the SKILLS that must / should be demonstrated by the check-ride applicant.

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.

Lots of information in this section. As a student pilot, I find the communications very confusing, but it was a great overview and I am beginning to see some light at the end of this tunnel. Now the challenge is to be able to communicate effectively along with the other 20 things that are needed.

Disappointing
Hoped to get a definitive sequence for practicing stalls but only got an explanation (albeit a good explanation of stalls) of what they are and recovery actions. Covered a lot of material that does not appear in check ride requirements. Too much emphasis on spins. For private pilot there is no requirement to spin or recover from a spin. did spins with my CFI but don't think this video will help me pass my check ride.

A re-do to remember!
Just completed this new Practical Test Course. Great work on the videos. I must say it was just as much or more enjoyable than the previous Practical Test Course. I've met all requirements and now ready to schedule my check ride. I'm going to take John's advice and try to have fun! Thanks
