  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. 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 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?

    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.

    Once you complete the three practice exams with a score of 70% or higher, you can print out your endorsement.

  11. 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.

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

  13. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

This is the course for you!!
I am a 41 year old female dentist with absolutely no aviation experience--a complete novice. I took the private pilot airplane course, familiarized myself with all 700+ questions, supplemented that with a test prep book, and passed my test on the first try (11/22/17) with a 98! I was afraid that because of the new ACS format, I would struggle with the exam. Not one bit!

Not a Better Way To Learn!!
The King Schools Private Pilot-Airplane course is top notch! There's not a better way to learn and prepare for the FAA written! While the course includes a TON of information, it is broken down into short, easy-to-understand and easy-to-remember videos. As I took the test, I could vividly remember John and Martha's explanations of the various subjects. For adult learners, this course is "the only way to fly"!!

I used this course in conjunction with the Jeppesen text book and other internet resources. I believe I would have passed the test with just this course but if you want to have a deeper understanding you need to supplement the course with additional resources.

Good basic prep
I used this course as my primary preparation for the exam, augmented with a lot of other study (reading the FARs, free online prep, other practice exams, 3 hrs. ground school with my CFI.) The videos were excellent at instilling the basic test terminology and how to think about the questions. Overall I did 7 practice exams (4 of them from King). Scored 97% on the exam.

Couldn't be happier!
Choosing King Schools to prepare for my written exam was definitely the right decision. They're very good at taking a lot of material and making it not seem overwhelming to learn. If you do what they say and take the practice tests they provide, you will definitely pass. I couldn't be happier with my exam results and will now be purchasing their check ride prep course.

Passed with Flying Colors 95%
With my full time working schedule, I would have never been able to pass the Private Pilot's Knowledge test without the help of Kings Aviation Online School. I used Kings Online course two years ago to pass my Sports Pilot Knowledge exam. Thank you John and Martha for all the work that you folks put in to developing the online course. The value of your online courses are well worth more than you charge. Bob Clark

5 STAR - great program
Everyone should take this course before spending a lot of money on flight time first. Get the Ground done right away and figure out the aircraft from a knowledge base instead of in the air.

Great course, terrible tests
Classes are great, tests are terribly unstable. I got errors on about every other question. I tried different web browsers and called tech support but they were no help.. I ended up writing down my answers and hand grading my tests, not what I expected from a $300 course.

King Courses Rule!
Though I did bungle the test a bit and get only a 92%, I cannot fault the presentation of the King Courses. The material was well explained and I very rarely had to review a video to understand a concept. I would certainly recommend this course. It's convenient, covers all the required material, and it'll get you there.

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!

Flying high!
I just finished the test this morning in under an hour. I made a 93 on the "new" test. This guy overheard my score and asked me what did I do to prepare because he failed it.

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!

Just did my test today, after 3 months of studies about 3x a week for 1-2 hours at a time. No problems passing on the first try. I used a combination of this course and a couple of books when I felt I needed to learn more on particular subject: Rod Machado's Private Pilot Handbook and Delia Colvin' s Aviation Weather made easy. I feel great! Now I can focus on finishing the flying this summer!

Super Preparation - Nailed it!
I've been preparing off an on (mostly off) since 1978 to get my Private Pilots Certificate. Life does take you on many adventures and sidetracks on your path to the License to Learn. A few years ago it was time to make it happen ... and the first step I took was to buy the King Schools Private Pilot Course and started studying - well before I found a flight school and CFI. The format with brief learning 'bites' - humor - the ability to access the material online anywhere and at anytime - made it a joy to study. The learning modules are always updating and evolving so I have always felt up to date. Tough concepts are made easy. Confidence is instilled by John and Martha. I took my knowledge exam today and whizzed through the exam confident that I would score well - confident that I would score really well. I made a 97 I only missed 2. My only disappointment was with me. Against the King's advice I changed an answer - from the correct one to the second best one - which was wrong. I'm more than satisfied because I know the King's gave me the knowledge and confidence to score really well with "no stress". I actually enjoyed taking the exam!

Very Comprehensive
I used the app for almost all of the training and it was very simple, intuitive, and user friendly. The ability to load and unload individual lessons was great so I could pick exactly what I needed without taking up too much storage on my devices. I also alternated between an iPhone and an iPad and the apps kept track of my progress across devices very well. Will definitely be using the Instrument school when I get to that point.

Outstanding Resource
Excellent tool to help prepare you for written exam. Companion App for iPhone was essential and core part of my studying that led to a 98% on test.

Great source for Private Pilot
The website is easy to navigate. The information in the course is relevant and current. I really like the explanations of why an answer is correct but also why the others are incorrect.

Great thorough groundschool
I used it for my PPL written test prep and found it to be a great learning aid over the years. The one thing you just can't underestimate is the ability to go back and revisit the training when you have an otherwise busy life. Without having to pay the monthly fees of other schools. You pay once and you have it for life with all the current updates included, as if you started today. Looking at the dates I started 9 years ago, but just didn't have the time go all the way. As time went on, I'd go back and learn a little bit at a time. Well, I went and took my test today and got 98%. In this last month of my real prep I also decided to try another new, currenlty very popular online school just to make sure I had my bases covered (this one had monthly subscription), and I found the explanations lacking depth and experience that you get here. Long story short, if anyone asked me about which ground school I would recommend, this would be it. And I will absolutely be using the following courses to augment my actual flight training going forward.

Great Course
King Schools has a great Private Pilot course that will help you pass. Only one star off for several dated videos, but content is very relevant.
