  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 Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Instrument Rating Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Instrument Rating practical test (a.k.a. Instrument Rating 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 Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 16 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. 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 Instrument Rating 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 have lifetime access to your Instrument Rating 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. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

    Just make sure the email address in your King Schools iLearn account matches your WINGS account. We will automatically grant WINGS credit when you complete the course. For more information, click here.

  12. Now that I finished the course, what´s next?

This course will prepare you for your instrument rating checkride (Also referred to as the instrument rating practical test). It includes footage on how to flawlessly execute in-flight maneuvers as well as prepare you for the oral test. Your passing the test is guaranteed!

I was well-prepared.
The FAA is updating their database. You really need to learn the material and be prepared to apply it, don't just memorize the answers to the practice tests here. This course did a great job preparing me for the written by actually teaching me the information. Passed with a 95% on my first try!

Amazing!
I'm a visual learner, and these videos helped quite a bit. John & Martha are silly, which I think also helps me remember details. I just wish this course included a few PDFs to print out & reference, such as quick reference guides for airspace differences, weather & alternate quick memory guides, etc.

Great course
I started with the Gleim IFR ground school as suggested by my flight school. I got about halfway through it; I just didn't feel like I was learning. The King Schools made a big difference. The short, interactive lessons made a huge difference.

Comprehensive Content
I intended to use the King Schools Instrument Course as a supplement to a Part 141 Instrument Rating course I was taking last semester. However, I quickly discovered the content, material and instructional aides provided in the King Schools Instrument course was more comprehensive and detailed in preparing me for my written exam. Ultimately, I passed my FAA Exam with a 97% thanks to King Schools!!!

     
Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Test Course - Online

 

Passed with a 90%
I can say the IRA test is a hard exam, but Kings prepares you, Next to impossible to memorize questions given majority of questions are navigational. Kings prepares you by understanding the material rather then memorization and being able to relate it to the exam and real world flying. I took the exam in under one hour and the answers I got wrong were simply because I answered it too quickly. Highly recommended product

Passed with a 90!!!
I started on the Instrument training ground school in 2016 and had to take time off because life happens. I started back up again at the beginning of August 2020. I simply started the course over from the very beginning to make sure I caught all the updates ( and there were a lot). I'm so glad I purchased the online course as it was updated regularly and I didn't have to worry about missing out on something with the CD's. John and Martha do a great job of teaching all the information in a manner that makes it understandable and retainable. I do my IFR checkride in October and then off to Commercial and Multi-engine. Cannot wait!!!!

Glad I Studied with you
Well its only been a few hours since i left the testing center and i am sure glad i went with King Schools. I started studying for the instrument rating by using another company that "has the test databank." After a few days of using "the other company" i was frustrated being i wasn't grasping the concepts. I purchased the King Schools instrument ground school and after about a week of hitting the books i passed. The questions they use are not verbatim; however, the concepts are the same. I don't think i would have passed if it wasnt for King Schools and the instrument ground school.

Well done, well explained
I purchased a couple of online aids. The King version was the best; the videos were right sized, they had excellent content and were very clear and simple to approach. I really liked being able to go back over topics and review them in minutes rather than searching/seeking thru long videos.

The info in the videos is good, but some of the videos have 10 seconds of nothing at the end of them, and the sound effects for quizzes are very loud

Thanks again.
Used your courses for both my Private Pilot and Instrument rating. I got 100% for my Private Pilot and and 97% for my Instrument rating. I was surprised i was able get those scores as i am 50 years old and don't hold information like i did in my 20's. Your memory aids and presentation made the information easy to retain. Looking forward to using your Commercial course soon. Blue skies. Warren.

Great
Compared to the private pilot, the written for the instrument was more challenging. But I feel like Kings online ground school prepared me a lot for the test. From my experience the private pilot written was word for word on the written and it only took me 30min, but the instrument written was in different wording so it made me take an hour to do it. But do not just memorize the question, its better to actually know the content that they are asking. :)

4 Stars
I truly believe King Schools is the way to go if you want to understand in depth all about instrument flying (which you should!) however as far as preparing me for the actual exam I would say that is what took it down from 5 stars to 4 stars. I would recommend King schools to anyone! Thank you!

Convenient for me
I seem to have an adult form of ADD and hard for me to sit and listen to fire hose of unfamiliar information for hours on end. So, formal classroom was out for me. I was able to take the course and hour or so at a time over about 3-4 weeks with several days of not working the course. Did end of course "push" with review....all 980+ questions...and reviewed the ones I missed so will over 1000 questions. Did pretty well on the test. Missed 4 ...in areas I thought I knew and answered correctly...maybe inadvertently placed selection....did that several times during the course. I took the test and finished in under one hour but did NOT go back through.

Great
I was stuck home during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order in Michigan. Prior to that, I had started my IFR training and had begun reading material and putting in XC hours. Since we couldn't fly, I decided to give this online course a try. I found it entertaining and very useful. I've taken about 7 practice IFR tests from this program and others and have easily passed all of them above 70% (above 80%!!). I would recommend this course to anyone. It easily saved me hours of reading and lots of $$$. Looking forward to taking my IFR written now that I'm well prepared.

Awesome Product!
I purchased the King online IFR course for the knowledge exam and am so glad I did. I spent about three weeks going through the course and took my time to make sure I was absorbing the information along the way. The video segments don't just show you the answers, they show you how to get the answers which is improtant since a lot of the questions on the exam are similar, but not the same as the ones in the course. I scheduled the exam and kept taking practice tests until the day of my knowledge exam. The practice tests really help you see any areas where you need to focus more. I took the exam and scored 95%. Thanks King Schools!

Superb Course
I tried another study at home course, using just a book, and it hardly gave any information at all. It certainly didn't help prepare me for their practice tests. The King's course was excellent. The updates really made a difference as well. It's well worth the cost to have the updated materials. Along with the information you need to pass the FAA written, the King's give you lots of practical advice as well. The easy way to do holding is almost worth it all by itself! Thank you so much to Martha and John!

Wonderful course for the most part.
Wonderful course for the most part. This course helped me in many areas of my learning. But this was not the only course I was taking. I started this course prior to my start date of a 141 school. I continued this course simultaneously while in the 141 school. I also was using both ASA prepware practice exams and Sheppard Air study guide and practice exam. I indicated wonderful course for the "most part", cause I was surprised how much this course had airplane stuff since I purchased it as a helicopter course. I've been told by more then one instructor that the FAA knowledge exam will have airplane questions even though you are taking a helicopter exam. I've now taken Helicopter Private, Helicopter Instrument and Helicopter CFII exams. Out of all three (3) exams, totaling 170 questions, there was maybe 2 or 3 questions that could be deemed airplane type questions. I would not hesitate to use the King Schools courses!!! The methods John and Martha King use are very easy to follow and understand. Thank you for assisting me in my training. Some may argue that I was taking too many courses and exams simultaneously. But this is what I choose to do. It worked for me and my style of learning.

I attended an in person IFR ground school in 2016 but never took the test. Three hour blocks of instruction just didn't work. Your online program is FANTASTIC! I'm working full time so it took me about 6 months to get through it, but I just scored 100% on the test and felt completely prepared. I especially liked the bite-size videos that fully explain the important points, as well as the test questions. You do an excellent job in taking a mountain of material and making is accessible. Thanks!

Good IFR Course
I purchased the Instrument Rating Ground School and Test Prep Course in July 2019, but didn't get serious about it until Nov. 2019. I took my time watching the videos and once I watched them all I went back through them again. The best part was going through all 938 questions several times. This gives you a good idea of what will be asked on the exam. However the FAA question are asked completely different 70 percent of the time you still have a good idea of what they're wanting. If I decide to go further on to get my CFI or commercial I'll purchase the courses from the Kings. BTW I met John and Martha King at the AOPA fly-in at Tallahoma TN and they are great people.......and funny.

Excellent preparatory course
4+ stars. For the most part I found the videos engaging, informative, and with good suggestions for remembering some of the concepts. A couple of courses were weak in that regard but they are in the minority. I took 3 practice tests and except for one (I could never find Hobby VOR or airport), they were honest reflections of the course material. Now for the actual FAA test which I will take this coming Friday, 3/6. Wish me luck!

Generally solid preparation
I did not feel that the Instrument course provided the same comprehensive level of preparation provided by the PPL course. Everything that WAS presented was presented very well. I DID learn a great deal from the course, but my 97-100% scores on the practice exams translated to 90-93% level scores on actual instrument exams. This was due to the King course failing to emphasize some items and in some cases the King course either not covering the items at all or otherwise not providing any preparation for them. The King course IS definitely worth the money, in my opinion - translating to both good performance and deeper understanding, but I wish I had supplemented my test prep with other sources (besides the FAA primary material - which I read carefully).

Easy to Understand!!!
I really enjoyed this course in large part to the presentation of the material. The presentations made digesting the information easy and without the marathon viewing/listening that many others would require of you. This I believe helped me greatly in not only grasping quickly but also retaining everything that was covered.

FAA Questions changing
The Private Pilot I took in December 2019 was right on the content and the questions almost exact. The instrument course FAA questions on the exam were quite a bit different not only in wording but also in content/context. I still did well but several of the questions I was able to answer because I had done some other studying as well. Still good, but seems to be older questions or FAA made major changes for 2020.

This course was amazing!
I am 58 years old and wanted a course that would give me a practical, systematic approach to learning my instrument ground school. I took this course along with the practice tests and test prep. And I passed the FAA written exam the first time. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to pass the test the first time.

2 for 2 with Kings
I passed my PPL few years ago, and my IRA officially today with a 88% on the first try! Kings has great videos, tricks and tips, and the explanations were well delivered. I will be buying the commercial course in a few months! Thanks again!

the school portion is great and easy to follow. the charts provided are uploaded in a low quality. please upload better quality chart supplements as some are nearly impossible to read when doing the testing.

*****Great test prep course
After starting & stopping instrument study over several years from borrowed books I bought the King IFR Course and within 2 months of studying and taking the practice exams I passed the IFR written test with a 90%. Great way to get this done.

Fantasitc!
After trying once a few years ago on my own to study for the instrument exam, I gave up after slogging through the FAA books and free online exams. After taking this course over a month and a half, I was able to consistently do well on practice exams and more importantly, learn the material. I took the test and got in the 90s. Will definitely take another King course.

Got a 95% on my written!
I will admit I was skeptical at first, but I wanted to give the written test prep course a honest try. I watched all of the videos and took notes during each one (as if I was back in school). It took me about 12 days (1-2 hours ever day or two) to finish the entire ground school. I took the three required practice exams, then did two additional "randomized questions" exams. I reviewed and took further notes on any missed questions each time (this is important!). I studied my notes for about 90 minutes (45 minutes one day, 45 minutes the morning of my exam). I did not do any 'on my own' research or use any other reference materials - I did not read any of the other IFR prep books, etc - I only used the King ground school program (and I realize this looks like a fake review or that they told me what to do/say, but that is NOT the case). I really wanted to know if I could rely on the King method to take me all the way to CFI, so this was kind of a litmus test to that effect. Long story (and review) short, I am very pleased and earned a 95% on my written test (first time)! I am already signed up for their commercial pilot ground school and test prep program!

Best study material out there!
I have used King’s Schools for both Private and IFR. I tried another company but it was not as organized and didn’t teach the material. I will continue to use King’s for all of my ratings.

IRA and FII
I took the instrument rating written (IRA) and got and 88. I then went and took the instrument instructor written (FII) immediately after finishing my IRA exam and got an 82. The instrument rating course for king ground school will prepare you well enough to take both exams back to back. I would absolutely recommend taking them both.

Great course - again
I found the course very detailed and informative, covering everything needed for the written test. The website is very user-friendly and the app helps a lot when I'm not around my computer. Will definitely be purchasing the commercial test prep course after I take my instrument rating check ride.

Great course to pass the IRA!
This course could not be any better in my opinion. If you really pay attention to the material and take the practice tests and quizez, you will have no probelm passing the IRA first try.
