  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.

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 15 hours of video lessons.

    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?

The school felt very complete and well done. Some stuff I did have to go back over more than once because of the complexity, but I m sure that is expected. I think the layout and cosmetics could use an update, but the school is overall very easy to use.

Great Léa ring platform
King Schools online was the best platform for me especially being on the go. I really enjoyed the fact that I could load the course and study them offline. I wish the same could be done for the practice test portion as well. Since I don’t have cellular data on my iPad, it was hard to learn when WiFi is not available.

Great course, fun to take
John and Martha have done a great job over the years assembling a comprehensive course covering everything you need to know for the exam. It's easy to return and review areas, as well as the highly helpful practice exams. Nailed the PAR knowledge exam on my first try. I'll be back for my next rating!

ORGANIZED PERFECTLY!
I could not be happier with this course! It was organized in such a way that I was never confused by what was being taught. The pace was perfect and the presentation was hilarious at times. I was sad to finish the videos!! I got an 82%, BUT had a date scheduled shortly after finishing the ground school test. For this reason I was not able to spend much time in the test prep module. There is no reason somebody could not get a 90% or better if they take the time.

Thanks John & Martha
Passed the private written test this morning 9/13/18 w/ a 95%. You and your team really have a knack for making the material "stick". I started the ground school over 5 mo. ago, and was a bit worried that I'd have forgotten some of the earlier lessons. Nope, the 3 I had wrong were mostly due to not correctly reading the questio

Well worth it!
John and Martha King did a great job getting me through my course. As I'm new to the aviation world and have been asking around regarding flight instruction I was pleasantly surprised to see how often King Schools name came up. I'd definitely recommend this course.

Great Program
I loved the videos. This is a great program for someone who is just starting their journey in becoming a pilot. Thorough yet concise, all while being fun and easy to understand.

Best money I ever spent
I was really worried about taking the FAA knowledge test for my PPL. I watched all of the videos answered all the questions and studied every chance I got. However, every practice test I took in the course I would barely pass. I finally decided I wasn't going to be able to cram anything more in my head and I just needed to take the exam. I was very nervous when I got there, but as I took the test everything Martha and John had gone over came back and was there when I needed it. I passed the exam with a 92%!!! I have a full time job and a family so I don't come by spare time easily. With King Schools' course I was able to study on my time when it was convenient (in the middle of the night when everyone else was asleep) and two weeks after watching the introductory video I was able to pass my knowledge exam. I can't thank you guys enough. I will be coming back for more!

A Perfect Match!
King School's private pilot course has been the perfect choice for me. As a 68 year old first-time student, I was apprehensive about whether I could effectively and thoroughly learn all the material that the FAA requires. John's and Martha's method of teaching and reinforcing relevant knowledge, however, has allowed me to advance at my own pace, feel confident as I progressed through the various subjects, and ultimately earn a high score on the FAA written exam!

King School
King's Schools for pilots has helped me to easily understand the things that seemed so complex in the book. I feel 100% more confident about the basics of VFR flying since using the King School program. Thank you John and Martha for making my VFR ground school a successful learning experience.

Awesome!
I am a very visual learner, so all the videos, graphs, charts and explanations were perfect for me! I took seven practice exams and went through all the questions individually after I finished the course. I loved being able to review the missed ones. Any question I missed, then missed twice I reviewed that section, and went into the test feeling very prepared. Everything was explained simply, and I love your excitement and passion for flying!

PASSED!!
Took my written about 2 hours ago. Passed with an 88%. Very thankful I did Kings Ground School. I felt over prepared. I also used an ASA prep test book for more questions. The teachers are a bit corky, but they cover everything you need to know for the written. I used the VOR diagram drawing, airspace minimum drawing, and the compass acronyms. They made the questions easy to answer. I will be using Kings for my IR and Commercial when the time comes. Thanks!

Extremely Effective.
This stuff is cheesy, and the two instructors are quirky. But I'll be damned if they didn't fill my head with hard-to-forget mnemonic devices and solid repetition of difficult concepts. It's really a good course. I crushed it in just a couple of weeks, and I've heard of students going through the entire thing in days (that would make me go completely insane but I do believe it's possible).

Teaches to the Test
King Schools provided a wealth of information, but at times, I felt the information lacked concentration on the actual relative information, but more so on the means of passing the written exam. I suppose that is the overall goal, but for my purposes, I lost some of the information or understanding. The end result was a passed test, but with questions I still didn't understand. The presentation was a little cheesy, but admittedly upbeat. I do appreciate the positive attitudes. When teaching, I often found them focusing on the means and methods of getting the correct answer, more than why the correct answer was what it was. There was once instance where they were obsessed with a graph, where they wanted you to go up, then horizontal. They repeated it three times the method, but I only heard once why we were even using the graph, and lost the entire purpose from the beginning.

Definition of "to the point"
I took the Private Pilot course with Kings School and the lessons and contained information was short and sweet. It was easy to understand and not a boring black and white way of studying. Videos were informative and helpful to understand the fundamental concepts of the course knowledge.

Review
This course helped so much and gave very pertinent, if not exact information that was found on the knowledge test. I would recommend not spreading the course out as much as I did (over 4 months) so that the information is fresher in your memory. The practice tests were a huge help as they allowed me to go back and study the topics that needed to be reviewed. Overall, it was a great course!

Very detailed
I had done the Sporty's Private Pilot Ground School and I enjoyed it very much but I felt it was lacking in detail. I did not feel confident in my ability to pass the written test after completion of the program. I felt like it did not have enough detail and test prep included. After completion of the King School program I feel that I'm going to do great on my test. Thank you King Schools!!

Your website and courses did their job. I passed my knowledge test today with an 88. First time I took it and at age 61, I am very pleased. I would highly recommend your courses to anyone thinking of taking ground school. Thanks again.

Great teachings from the Kings
Overall, I enjoyed learning with King schools. I thought the system was a little outdated but sometimes you shouldn't fix something thats not broken.

not very modern
You might want to consider having a web designer change up the website to be more modern.

I passed thanks to King School
I believe the headline states it all. However, I must say that I took my time to cover, absorb and review all the material that John and Martha covered. It was an enjoyable journey seeing myself go from not knowing anything about aviation to understanding all of the various terminologies, rules, and regulations. King Schools private pilot course gets to the meat and potatoes of what you need to know and also. They provide the information in a clear, concise and fun fashion which helps in getting the information to stick. Also, I like being able to use the app on my tablet which made it convenient for taking my learning with me.

Thanks Kings! Between this course and all the extras that went with it, I was able to get exactly what I needed to pass the written test the first time. I have already recommended you and will keep doing so.
