Humor Helps You Learn
Humor is part of our style because it makes learning more enjoyable, but there´s always a more important point to humor: to make key concepts easier to remember.

  1. Is this course right for me?
    This course is designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA CFII knowledge test.
  2. What are the system requirements for this course?
    Online course media requires a broadband internet connection. The course will run on your iPad, tablet, iPhone or smartphone.
  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 CFII 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.

  4. How much time will it take to complete the course?
    The CFII Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 17 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.
  5. 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 - 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 CFII Ground School & Test Prep courses contain 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.

  6. Can I still access the course material after I complete the course?
    You have lifetime access to your online course materials.
  7. Do I need an endorsement?
    CFI/FOI Course
    Please refer to for a complete explanation of required endorsements.

    CFII Course
    Please refer to for a complete explanation of required endorsements.
  8. What does CFI mean?
    CFI is short for Certificated Flight Instructor. It is common to see or hear it as Certified Flight Instructor, but this is technically not correct. The FAA has stated that they do not 'certify' pilots, they just 'certificate' them.

Didn't help me teach
Basically a review of the Instrument ground school sold at your local Cessna Pilot Center. If you already have that then there is no need to purchase this. It didn't explain how to teach any of the concepts covered either.
