  4. Are the courses current?
    Your online course is always current and kept up-to-date. Courses are automatically updated with the latest information, rules and regulations 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 on 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.
  5. What do I study first?
    First view the "Your Success Begins Here" video on how to use the course effectively and gain insight to the features and benefits of the course. If you scroll down past the video, you will find an outline with additional tips and information. Once you start 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.
     
    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 Sport Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 7.5 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 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.

    Check the PSI Exams website at https://faa.psiexams.com/FAA/login to find a testing location near you.
  12. How do I find a FAA Medical Examiner to schedule my physical?
    Check the FAA.gov website at http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/ to find an examiner. You need pass your physical before you can solo.
  13. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

Excellent ground school and te
I started the Sport Pilot course on 6-17-2021 and completed it on 6-22-2021. The instruction was interesting and to the point. If you follow the program including the comprehensive question review and the practice exams you should pass the FAA written exam.  I took mine on 6-25-2021 and passed with a 95 percent.  I completed ground school and passed the FAA written exam in a total of 8 days. Well worth the price of this course.

Good solid course
This course will do what it says it will do... I passed the Sport Pilot - Airplane written test with a 90%.  Probably would have scored 100% if I had not second-guessed myself on a couple of questions.
Grant S. 08/30/2019
Sport Pilot Airplane Ground School & Test Prep
This course is the answer!
If you take this course, you will be rewarded with a passing score on the written exam. Write down everything that is on each lesson, put into a binder, and study. Take all 507 questions from the bank over and over. The 3 exams at the end were cake because of how easy the lessons are to comprehend! I have taken 2 ground schools (classroom setting) from other places and its not even comparable to the straight forward information this course delivers. I took the FAA written exam 2 months after starting the course and passed easily! Don't wait, take this course!!

Prepared Me For The Test
I got the course for Christmas, completed in about a week. Went through it twice more from January thru May. I also took the sample tests multiple times for practice - including 6 times in the days leading up to the exam.The test went really well and there was no need for the plotter or E-6B. I completed it in about 20 minutes. The only surprise was that 3 of the questions seemed totally new to me; I don't recall them in any portion of the course or practice-exams.
Jason H. 05/13/2019
Sport Pilot Airplane Ground School & Test Prep
Wonderful Instruction
Took the Sport Pilot Written last week - missed one question.  Took my E-6B manual and E-6B electronic calculators - never picked them up.  The only question which might have needed the E-6B was one that said:  Your aircraft uses 3.1 gallons of fuel going 45 mph, to go 28 miles.  How much fuel would it use to go 25 miles?  Answers to choose from were; A. 3 gallonsB. 4 gallonsC. 5 gallonsNo E-6B needed here - even a cave man could figure this one out!

Well prepared for test
The Sport Pilot practical study course prepared me quite nicely for the FAA knowledge exam -  I think it was a good idea to redo the practice tests again the day before the actual exam.

Take *THIS* instead of PPC DVD
King Schools was gracious enough to give me access to this online "Airplane" course after the "Powered Parachute" DVD-based course was found to lacking in updates and notable errors.  Instead, just study the FAA's "Powered Parachute Flying Handbook" and do this online course, and you'll be set to go (at least until King gets an online version of the PPC course).

39 out of 40
Although I had some minor issues with the online classes, in the end I easily passed the test.  But I took copious notes and studied very hard to memorize things and to understand what was being taught.
Bryan J. 08/19/2018
Sport Pilot Airplane Ground School & Test Prep
Better with some proofing
It is good if you take very good notes.  I mean stop the video and write down every word and draw everything that has an illustration.  I mean it - good if you do that, if not, you will not pick up everything.  Study your notes carefully, take the practice exams.  Also, the videos go fast so get ready to hit that pause button.  Finally, there is some wrong and missing information.  And the charts could be bigger and clearer.

John and Martha make it fun.
I enjoyed studying the Sport Pilot online course. Had to go over the air space's and navigation several times to feel comfortable with it, funny thing is I didn't have one navigational question on the exam. They must have know I was ready!

Well worth the time and money
I would highly recommend KING Schools to any future pilot. I personally used the Sport Pilot Ground School, and it was great! The videos were extremely helpful and full of all the necessary information. Some are a bit cheesy, but that keeps them fun to watch. You still need to put in the effort to study for the test and prepare yourself, but this ground school does its part to prepare you to ace the test.

Thank You!!!!
John, Martha and all your great employees!!!! Thank you. I think your web site is excellent and highly recommend it to others. I especially enjoyed the Answer Questions section in the Test Prep. I went over all the questions several times. I find repetition to be the best way to learn. Do something over and over and over and you will remember it. It only took me 34 minutes to complete the test this morning and I went through it twice. I shouldn't have missed the 2 that I did and that is because I did not read them thourghly.

STOKED !!!
Just took my sport pilot written test and passed with a score of 95. My CFI is using my score to taunt his pilot students. Was it easy ? actually yes. studied the KING material a couple hours a week. Threw in 4 to 6 hours of ground with my CFI, and BAM !  Done deal.. On to solo next. Waited many years for this dream to become reality. Thank you KING. I will be back. Sport pilot CFI on down the road.

great homestudy course
The illustration, videos, and on screen notes/captions are superb as they really aid in helping me understand the material. I love the memory tricks/aids used to help me remember number like distance from clouds for example as well as airspace class (aka alphabet soup airspace) with the 3d models used to illustrate it and remove the complexity

The Sport Pilot course was a thorough introduction to the information needed for the FAA knowledge test.  It was presented in an easy-to-understand manner, and most importantly, explained the principles behind the answers---that made answering questions that were new or worded differently much easier.  Thank you, John and Martha!

Passed FAA Exam First Time..
I ordered this course based on my flight instructors recommendation. Before taking the King's School course I knew virtually nothing about aviation. I went through the course twice. The first time I took my time and listen to each lesson very carefully. The  second time through was fairly fast paced just focusing on the lessons I didn't fully understand. This is a great course, I highly recommended to anyone getting ready to take the FAA knowledge test regardless of your experience. I went through all practice exams until I was averaging 95 to 100 percent, especially the random question exam. The FAA gives you two hours for the exam, I was out of there in about forty five minutes total time including registering for the exam and paperwork after the exam. I passed the exam well above the minimum score required with ease. I highly recommend this course.
Michael C. 10/28/2015

Very informatiive & fun course
This course is packed with information, and John and Martha present that information in a fun yet informative style.  (Although some of John's jokes are real groaners).  I'd definitely recommend the Sport Pilot course, and when I go for my next rating, I'll definitely come back to King Schools to help.
Dale W. 09/01/2015

Passed it!
I took the test today and they threw me a few curves, I'm a BS EE and I studied the required English but I know my math better than I do my usage of the "inglés" language! A close friend warned me the FAA loves questions with a correct answer AND a more correct answer and those were the ones I had trouble with. Saying that, the course covered most of all the test questions and I was prepared. Of interest, I did NOT have to use my plotter or E6 computer, there was one fuel question and I did the simple math in my head. I honestly feel the course you have is far superior to probably 75% of the CFIs holding classes at a FBO. As such, I’ll recommend your program to anyone that asks where I learned how to fly!

The course followed  a very logical progression that made it easy to remember and apply the principles that were learned. The question bank completely covered the FAA learning objectives. I felt completely prepared to not only take the knowledge exam but to also now understand better the critical information to be a better pilot.

King Sport Pilot Test Overview
I think the King Course is a good one as it prepares the student for what type of questions can be asked on the FAA test.  It is almost impossible, at least in my case,  to be 100% prepared for everything that can be "thrown at you".  I probably went too deep into some areas and avoided the simpler questions that jumped up and bit me! The FAA worded them in a completely different context that made me try and out think the basic principles.

THE WAY TO GO
I spent about six months studying for my FAA written test using the King School Sport Pilot Course. It was more than worth the price of the material. The big difference to me was having John and Martha go through and explain each subject in the video class room format. I can highly recommend this program to anyone going for a pilot's license, at any level.
