  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 Commercial Pilot - Helicopter 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.
