  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 "Your Success Begins Here" 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 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?

    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.

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?

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

I used multiple sources while studying for my PAR from books to websites and so forth.
I used multiple sources while studying for my PAR from books to websites and so forth. The King School videos were by far the best way to break up all the information making it easily comprehendible. I took just over a week to watch the videos and take notes on it. Studied my notes 2-3 times and made noticeable progress each time I took pre-tests. If you are willing to carve out the time, these videos will be one of, if not the best resources for studying for your PAR.

King Schools really helps!
I'm just your average student pilot who was sweating this written exam. Because of King's videos and extremely helpful individual tests (you can go through each topic individually and answer all the questions), I passed very comfortably. I will continue to use and recommend King for all the up and coming private pilots out there!

Too expensive,lacking, Old
first of all the old guy talks really really fast. it was hard to catch what he was saying a lot of times. i think the course needs to create new questions instead of the same example they solve during the course. when you take the tests at the end of every tutorial, you will get to asked the same questions which is stupid idea. I would like to solve different questions. After all i am not really happy with this course. there are many online ground schools that are cheaper and more informative. I think i will go with another online course provider for my IFR. these courses seem like out of dated or from 1980s. it is time to retire the old guy and lady and have someone who speaks better and explain things in matter of science.

Excellent Course
This course provided an excellent learning format. The videos provided how to's to show examples and further enforce the learning message. The short courses allowed me to maximize my learning by not dragging out the course content for extended periods of time. The way that they were broken into 5-10 min videos were just the right length to maximize learning!

King Schools, the ONLY choice!
I own two Private Pilot ground school courses, Sporty's and Kings. Kings is much more detailed, entertaining, easier to follow along and definitely the right choice. Sometimes watching Sporty's ground school I would just fall asleep. The videos are presented almost in its entirety in a monotone voice. They do have nice graphics though. Regarding King's videos, I would like to see in the future a Bookmark option.

Perfect!!!
King Schools prepared me very well for the Private Pilot Written test. I could not have had better training. I feel like I have come to understand the material versus memorized information. Thank you King Schools!

Helpful course to pass exam
The course definitely helped me to pass the test and covered all relevant topics. The material in the online course are exactly the same as in the test, so you felt very familiar and comfortable during the test. I wished the online course would explain a little bit more the theory behind some topics. I sometimes had the feeling, all it does is to provide you the correct answer, but without a proper explanation. Thats why I rated 4 out of 5 stars. The presentation style could be a little bit more up to date, but thats what you expect from King schools :)

Crushed it
I started revising just over one month before my test, taking my time with each video and subject. I spent the 10 days before the test doing the 3 practice tests and answering all questions. Got 88% on my test, first time, felt very well prepared.

Loved The Course
I was warned I may find the videos and accompanying humor obnoxious but that the content was solid. Turns out I love the humor and the content is amazingly dense yet understandable.

Very Impressed
I was taking a ground school course in my area and it was great...however retaining the information was not so great. I'd have to go back week after week, paying to refresh on the things I was already taught...This got very frustrating and expensive. In doing a search to get better at understanding airspaces, I ran across one of your instructional videos online. You all broke it down so clear and the huge prop behind you showing me exactly what you're talking about was exactly what I was needing to put the dots together in my mind...On top of that, if I had any questions, I could just hit replay and watch it over and over again. I took the plunge and just bought the entire course package. I am so impressed, the videos that I purchased seemed to be way more in depth and you all do a phenomenal job being as detailed as possible...I grateful for your hard work and dedication to getting this course out there for us. The staff also in customer service have always been kind and courteous...Great job you all around.

Fantastic Course
What a great course. I took a couple of years to get through it due to being posted overseas, and it was great to get the updates and use the companion app. The length of each module is appropriate and John and Martha’s presentation style keep even the most mundane topics interesting. After my checkride my DPE commented on my command of the knowledge during both the oral portion and questions during the checkride. I look forward to taking the King course for my instrument rating. Thanks!

Very Complete
I actually started the course 4 years ago and then got side tracked with life. After that much time I came back and finished it and made a 95 on the test. Still current information and very thorough.

Trust The Process
The PAR course was very easy to follow and the practice exams made a great simulation of the actual exam by the FAA. Recommend the course to everyone. I start at ATP in May 2019, but decided to complete my PAR written before starting. Coming in from Zero flight time, King Schools made it very easy to learn the materials for the FAA PAR Exam. The videos may not seem fancy for 2019, but they have all the necessary information to ace the exam.

The King's staff is brilliant. They go into the perfect amount of detail and give you all the resources you need to succeed, and somehow keep it interesting (even the topics you aren't particularly interested in). Great product.

Great Visuals!
This ground course was a very helpful course in terms of visuals and their explanations. I am not the type of person at all to sit down and read textbook to help me study. I am all about visuals because that's the only way I learn! Even my notebook with notes to help me study that I took from this course are all colorful with highlights and different diagrams. I am very happy I took this course being it helped me prepare for the written and doing it quickly. I did very little ground with my instructor because I had this long pause between my solo and now, my Checkride prep. King Schools really helped me in check with the theory aspect of aviation and flying. From the perfect green screen used to the amusing jokes that Martha and John cracked, I was kept entertained all the way through!

The only way to go
The material is so complex that the only way to master it is to review it several times. With videos you can do that easily, with ground schools you can't. And John and Martha do such a superior job I can't imagine anyone else being better at it.

The course was very helpful in understanding key concepts of aviation (airplane). The explanations were thorough and practical where it applies directly to the test.

I used Kings School to supplement an in-person ground school. The program gave me the confidence and visual learning that I needed to succeed. I'd highly recommend it and look forward to using it to pursue my full array of aviation goals.

Worth every penny
I didn't take any ground lessons with my instructor. Instead, I bought this and ended up with a 90% on my written. Amazing videos!

Well worth the Investment
I purchased King’s ground school and private pilot test prep course. I was very please with material and the way John and Martha presented it. This was just what I needed given the fact that I do not have an aviation background. I passed my written test with flying colors! Thank You!

Comprehensive & Easy to Follow
I don't think it can get anymore straight forward and comprehensive when it comes to ground school. John and Martha do it well in this course. The reputation speaks for itself.

Great Program to Take!
King School is simply excellent. The videos are dry, but filled with all the information a Private Pilot should know! It was extremely beneficial going to an instructor, and showing my knowledge of the theoretical and conceptual subjects that go along with flight training. He was impressed, and my progress was accelerated with my prior knowledge learned from John and Martha. The best part is getting FAA questions to practice, and to test yourself, which are required to complete the course before endorsement! Thank you to the both of you for your time and effort in helping future pilots like myself!

Very Thorough!
Very thorough and well laid out course. Videos explain the content very well. I personally struggled with the flight planning and weight and balance portion. The videos made sense but when I went to answer exam questions I completely blanked out on how to figure those out. I also didn't realize I would need a flight computer and plotter so I didn't get to practice using them. I really enjoyed how fun the course was. Key items were repeated multiple times to reinforce the correct information.

Excellent
I took your course in 1987 with Beta tapes and got a 100% and you sent me a Top Gun hat. I never completed my Private Pilot License: life got in the way. Second time around I got a 95%. Great job.

Well worth it!!!!
Fantastic course. I found he King’s entertaining and very easy to follow. I was nervous going into the test but by the time I was 30 questions in I found I was totally prepared! Just follow the test prep and by the time you take finish the 3 practice tests you will feel completely at ease. The best part was the fact that I finished the test with an hour to spare.

The tricks for simplifying and remembering large amounts of otherwise confusing info is awesome. The fact that they make it fun and very achievable is quite a feat and well worth the money spent. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in a heart beat!

I recently passed my PP written exam with a score of 95% and I attribute much of that to the training that I received through the King Schools PP online course.
