King Schools has trained 1 out of every 2 pilots!

  1. Is this course right for me?

    These courses are designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA sport pilot Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA sport pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. Sport 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.

    Not sure about the process of becoming a pilot, check out King Schools How to Become a Pilot page.

  2. What are the system requirements for this course?

    Any device with an Internet browser and broadband Internet connection.

  3. 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 Sport 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.

  4. Is there a particular order to follow? Are some lessons easier than others?

    First, select the "Click HERE to Start" menu icon on your Sport 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 4 pilot skills courses as they will tie into your practical flying.

    Once you have passed the FAA Sport Pilot Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Sport Pilot Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Sport Pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. sport pilot checkride).

    Of course, 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.

  5. How much time will it take to complete the course?

    • The Sport Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 7.5 hours of video lessons.
    • The Sport Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 3.5 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.

  6. 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 you 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 your 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can review the material as often as you like at anytime. Sometimes, you may want to review a video segment a couple of times.

    King Schools Sport 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.

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

    You have lifetime access to your Sport Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course.

  8. 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.

  9. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?

    You can check the PSI Exams website at https://faa.psiexams.com/FAA/login for a testing center near you.

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

    Consider getting your private pilot certificate! Of course, King Schools will be there to help you achieve this goal with King Schools Private Pilot Courses.

Thank you! Always very useful.

Airplane Used was Too Complex
The videos were useful, not quite as in depth as I would have liked, but of all the airplanes I could've chosen I would have preferred to see a Cessna 172 or Piper Arrow/Archer/Warrior as opposed to an up-to-date Mooney. Some of the systems discussed (think cowl flaps or a trim interrupt switch) were the opposite of generic as I feel they're intended to be. Like I said, beyond that there were some good discussions and points made that I think will help for my upcoming CFI check ride.

Refreshing Before Flying Again
It's been 2 or 3 years since I flew last. It's time to refresh and I know of no better way than to refresh with John and Martha King. I learned to fly with their VHS tapes and course books in the mid 90's, and I've always be a safe pilot. I intend to keep it that way!

The video footage and music may be a bit outdated but the overview is valuable and relevant. In the case of the commercial checkride course I found my actual checkride to be fairly similar to the video, except for some specific points that I was told by my instructor to expect from our particular examiner. Taking the mystery out of the checkride makes it so much more approachable.
