  4. Are the courses current?

    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 Commercial 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.

Of course you can skip around if you chose but we recommend staying on the lesson path.

    King Schools courses are self-paced so completion time will vary from person to person.

If you have 10-15 minutes of time, you can complete a course lesson.

    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 - We have a full staff of pilots and flight instructors available to answer your questions.

    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 Commercial 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 Long Does It Take to Become a Commercial Pilot?
    First, a distinction: A Commercial Pilot is someone who has the qualifications to earn money while flying. However, when someone hears Commercial Pilot, they often assume an airline pilot flying for a major air carrier. Acquiring your Commercial Pilot Certificate and experience needed for a first pilot job will take a year or two after becoming Private Pilot. Getting hired by an Airline would then take an additional couple of years. Airlines require another higher level of certification called an Airline Transport Rating which normally requires a minimum of 1500 flight hours to achieve, and building those hours takes time. The good news is that once you have your Commercial Pilot Certificate, you can earn money as a pilot while gaining the needed flight time.
  9. 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. Click on the Course Complete icon on the main menu to print your completion certificate.
  10. Can I still access the course material after I complete the course?
    You have lifetime access to your Online Commercial Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course. Remember, with the online media, the course is also automatically updated and will always be current.
  11. 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.
  12. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?
    Check the PSI Exams website at to find a testing location near you.
  13. How do I find a FAA Medical Examiner to schedule my physical?

    Check the website at to find an examiner. You need pass your physical before you can solo.

  14. 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.

Another King success story!
Just completed my third King course scoring a 94% on the Commercial Written! 95, 97, and 94 on the private, instrument, and commercial exams respectively. I will only use King, I always learn a lot and enjoy the course.

Nothing Compares
I used King Schools for Private, Instrument, and Commercial so far and I have passed my written with flying colors (no pun intended). I highly recommend King Schools to anyone who's looking to start aviation or become a more educated aviator.

Aced it!!!
Went into the test feeling confident and prepared after using the King School Commercial Ground School course.  What a relief walking out with a score of 100% correct,... no second guessing or wondering where I went wrong!!  Thanks John and Martha.

Crammed 3 day's and passed
I bought this course a month after I passed my IR (KING as well). I went through the whole course in about a month and a half. Life got in the way and 2 years went by. I crammed 3 day's on all the questions and worked on some of my weak areas because I had my written scheduled for 4/7/2022. I did pass my test with 76%. Lower than average for me but it is a pass (not a good test taker). I'll most likely retest now that life isn't in the way so much.

King School helped me pass my commercial written exam! Their videos are put together very well and the visuals they use helped me the most since I'm more of a visual learner. I used King School ground courses for my private, instrument and now my commercial. I highly recommend them!

Great Course!
I loved the Commercial Pilot Ground and Test Prep course. It is well-explained, includes practical examples, and a good rational pop up window for each question.

Excellent experience
This course prepared is a great preparation for the written test and also provides great knowledge for the oral portion of the check ride. It allowed me to pass my check ride flying colors. I 100% recommend this course to any student planing to go commercial.

The Kings did it again!
I used the King Schools Commercial pilot video course and practice tests combined with the ASA study guide and got a 97% on the written.... so I guess it worked!  I've used King for Private, IFR and Commercial and have been very satisfied with the quality of the materials, the technology, and their presentation style. Definitely recommended.

Excellent presentation
I passed my commercial written almost two years ago - cfi and dpe were scarce so I didn’t get my checkride - I wanted to review and confirm what I learned previously and this course did that and also added significantly to my confidence for my now upcoming checkride
