"I have been taking weekend and online FIRCs for many years and this is by far the BEST renewal course I have ever taken and I look forward to using again in two years."

How This Course Works
 
To successfully complete this course, you must, for every lesson in the course...
  1. Complete the pre-lesson assessment quiz
  2. Study all the lesson content, and
  3. Pass the end-of-lesson test
 
When You Complete Your Course...
...you can instantly print out your...
  • TSA Training Certificate
  • Completion Certificate
  • Graduation Certificate
 
Your FIRC purchase includes the Certificate Renewal Service, you will be able to...
  • Fill out an online 8710 form using the FAA's IACRA online program
  • Supply us with your FAA Tracking Number (FTN) assigned by IACRA
  • After we process your application, we will issue you a downloadable and printable temporary certificate
 

 
Save Time and Money on Your Renewal
Other courses require you to notarize documents and to send in information using certified mail. This can add significantly to the overall cost of your FIRC course. Since the KING FIRC uses the FAA's online IACRA system to process your certificate, all this is avoided. There is nothing to send in, allowing for a quick, easy, and inexpensive renewal process.
 
Why Not Try Something New—and more significant
You may have noticed that the FIRC options for flight instructors have not changed much in recent years. Well, you now have the opportunity to try something new. You´ll meet your certificate renewal requirements just like with any other FIRC, but the KING course will make you thoughtful about what you can do as a flight instructor to make general aviation pilots safer.
 
You will delve into areas that will be interesting, relevant, and sometimes provocative. You will find this new approach truly refreshing, and we are certain you will find our alternative to be engaging, educational and fun.
 
You're in Control
You may take the lessons in any order you choose. Once you comprehend all the material in a lesson, you will be ready to take the lesson test and confirm your learning. Once you pass, start studying the next lesson of your choice immediately.
 
Renew Online Without Leaving Home
This FIRC is the first to incorporate a paperwork-free, completely online, renewal process. You will be able to complete the renewal requirements at your computer and you will receive your temporary certificate by email.

A personal note to Flight Instructors
from John and Martha

"Flying self-selects fabulous people. It is easy to become fond of them. They are competent, committed and persistent. They are also vulnerable to the risks associated with flying. These are not foolhardy people. They often just don´t understand the risks they are taking. There is a very strong need to help pilots gain insights that will save their lives.

 

We decided our FIRC should cover things like "Identifying and Changing At-Risk Behaviors." If you are like us, you often see scary behavior in your own customers. We hope to give you specific tools to help your customers gain the insight they need. At a minimum taking this FIRC will make you thoughtful about these topics. The best case is that if you are not already, you will become a strong advocate of risk management to everyone in aviation."

 
John and Martha
 

  1. Does your Instructor Certificate expire this month?
    The FAA considers the FIRC lesson content critically important and wants to ensure that you do not rush through it or skip any of it. Therefore, they have mandated that we require a minimum amount of time be spent studying each lesson. As mandated by the FAA you must start your FIRC course at least 72 hours prior to the CFI expiration.
  2. Do I need to make any trips to the FSDO or get my documentation notarized?
    No, we do the renewal processing for you. By purchasing the KING FIRC, you will take advantage of our completely paperless, online renewal process.
  3. What devices will the course work on?

    Access your course from any device...all you need is an Internet connection and a web browser

    You can start your course anytime you want.

  8. How do I keep the same expiration date I currently have?
    You need to complete your course within 4 months of your current expiration date.
  9. How soon before my CFI certificate expires can I take your FIRC and maintain my same month of expiration?
    • To retain your same expiration month, submit your application for renewal anytime within the 3 calendar months prior to your current expiration month.
    • Your course graduation certificate is good for 3 calendar months from the month of issuance and must be valid at the time you submit your application for renewal.

  18. 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.

Great Course Modules...

A great instructor review!
I always enjoy taking the Kings School eFIRC.  I always learn something new and relearn some items I've forgotten.  The course has actually become a bit harder over the past 4-6 years (driven by the FAA requirements, but it is still presented in such a way to make it interesting and educational without being overly burdensome. I'll renew again with Kings School in two years!

Convenient Method to Renew CFI
This is a convenient method to renew your certificates.  I especially like the option to have King Schools do all the legwork to get my certificates sent to me.  I did not have success with the videos as they refused to buffer and play on my 4G network, but the textual portions of the lesson were adequate to provide success on the tests.

Airplane Flight Instructor Refresher Course (FIRC)
This course is no joke!
The CFI refresher course is well organized and flows well.  With all but two modules I had to use more time than the FAA minimum because there is so much information to study.  Don't plan on the minimum sixteen hours to complete, if you plan to get the most out of the course plan on at least 25 hours total.  But if you spend the time you will be rewarded with a legitimate thorough CFI refresher course.  I renewed with the KING course four years ago when and things have changed for the better, its better but will take more time.  I'll come back in two years!

Years with the King's
I've used King courses for years, both learning and CFI refresher courses. I've tried other courses but always return to the King courses simply for John and Martha. They are the most competent GA couple of all time but will still tell of their own mistakes both past and present. We owe a great deal to John and Martha for the commitment they have made to make GA safer for all concerned. They don't just talk the talk they truly walk the walk.

It keeps getting better.
I have been using King Schools FIRC for my CFI renewal for many years. It is my course of choice because it keeps getting better. I learn something new or have something clarified every time I take it. I used to take a popular three day ground school but stopped because there was just too much "hangar talk" and not enough learning time. I want the renewal but I also want to learn what is new from the FAA and TSA. Great job John and Martha.

Extremely informative FIRC
As this is my first online FIRC renewal, the only comparison I can make is a 2 day weekend renewal course. This, by far exceeds any 2 day live refresher course, in that it gives you time to review and study the course material. I've been an instructor for 46 years, I give this FIRC 5 stars plus.

Thank you again guys, thanks for calling me ahead of time and offering me the discount, I actually have a lifetime  enrollment in one of the other course offerings that is free after paying the first one but I still pay for yours because of your effort’s to be relevant and up to date on everything  and in the way you keep everything interesting, I have been a lifelong user of King, my director of operations harasses me for paying for it  but he is 30 and I am 56 And don’t care. I always seem to learn something new after flying 46 years,  thanks again guys and happy holidays  ; )

I have a renewed CFI
Thank you to the Kings for putting together a durable CFI renewal course. Most of the content with the King’s teaching is recycled from other courses. There is a substantial amount of bulleted text reading that goes into completing this course. While the course accomplished it’s goal, I would have liked to see something a bit more engaging. That said, I very much appreciated access to some of the relevant articles that John and Martha had published in years past.

Excellent, as usual!
Have used King Schools materials for private, instrument, commercial, flight instructor and FOI, as well as 4 FIRC courses.  All are excellent, well-organized and provide relevant information, as well as, in the case of FIRC, pertinent suggestions for providing meaningful flight instruction at all levels.

This was my first FIRC, and I was a bit wary of just about any provider out there.....especially the "buy one, get a lifetime free" kind of deals. In any case, this proved to be a very informative and enjoyable course......at-ease, stress free experience. I'm really happy I chose this route and with the added benefit/option of paperless processing.

Best CFI Refresher ever.
I have attended in person with AOPA, FAA, Bonanza Society and others.  I have taken the AOPA CD, VHS, written material mail in course, and twice taken AOPA online version.  King Schools gave me more pertinent and usable info than ever before, in over 50 years of renewals. Not to say it isn't an odious chore, but it was quite rewarding and very well laid out and easy to navigate and submit my application.  I won't hesitate to use King Schools in the future.
James S. 02/19/2018

Very Comprehensive
In addition to the obvious cost and convenience advantages, this is a big improvement over the average in person FIRC where you are limited listen to one or maybe two presenters, usually with limited audio-visuals less time to review things that aren't immediately clear.

As a bonus there are links to plenty of resources so you can fortify any of your weakness with some additional study.  I recommend it!

King Schools did a great job on this course.   I have been a CFI for over 30 years and this was the best online course I have taken.  It was complete, interesting and really covered material which is useful to being a professional CFI.  The renewal process at the end of the course was very easy because they walked you through the process.  I will do this course again in the future.

A very educational experience!
After completing the King Schools eFIRC nearly two years ago, I expected pretty much the same course.  YES..the course is still administratively the same, BUT WOW...was I surprised at the content!  The course material was much more applicable than two years ago and despite having to follow the "two-day" FAA imposed time requirement, I really felt like I learned a great deal!  Some courses were a great review and others taught me new information (I thought I knew)!  I look forward to next time.

While the FIRC accomplishes the goal, it does require quite a bit of time to work through the course.  I would suspect most dedicated instructors could work through the course in a more efficient manner if allowed.

I used this course last time as well, so it was my first choice for this reup, great just like last time, the updates on the ACS and the elective on tablets in the cockpit were a great addition. Great refresher for a working pilot who doesn't spend as much time instructing as he would like to, A+

Very beneficial course
I always renewed with an examiner.  The FIRC was very beneficial because of the knowledge review.  The broad spectrum of subjects keeps things interesting and makes for a better all around flight review.  I don't instruct full time and mostly perform flight reviews or aviation presentations at middle schools.  The course is good for someone not instructing every day also.

Gets down to the nuts and bolts of what we need to know as instructors.

This was my 11th. FIRC and my second time doing it with King. Throughout the years I have tried them all. From the 16 hour sit down FIRC's to all the online FIRC's from when they first came about in the late 90's. The best is King! Super easy menu navigation, plenty of useful information for CFI's and the ability to print the lesson material covered which is great for keeping handy as a future reference. I especially like the option of being able to pick the topic that interests me in 2 of the modules. And of course the easy and convenient paperless processing using IACRA. All in all I give the whole thing an A+. Thanks King!!

A Great Way to Renew
King Schools' FIRC is a thorough, yet quick and easy way to renew your Flight Instructor certificate.  It's scenario-driven approach helps pilots understand the concepts as they are presented.  Including the required TSA and Security Awareness Training module is a big plus as it permits renewal of those requirements at the same time.  I especially like the pre-test for each section, which highlighted my strengths and weaknesses in each topic area and prepared me for what I needed to know in that segment.  The program itself is very easy to navigate and the instructions are clear and concise.  King Schools' FIRC is a great way to renew your flight instructor certificate.Thomas P.

User Friendly and Informative
I thought this course was informative and helpful.  At no time did I feel like questions or responses were designed to be tricky or test my knowledge of grammar more than my subject knowledge.  Everything was well presented, written and helpful.

FIRC course
Once again, good review course on many subjects that apply.    To give you some background, I am a retired airline pilot, background being that of military and airlines.   I used your courses on the FIRC now twice to keep my instructor licenses up-to-date and having instructed both in the Navy and with my airline, I plan to instruct in the civilian world, most likely specializing in instrument or ATP lessons.   Your courses, I have found to be quite professional and good, keep up the work.Capt.

King does it again, A+
This was by first online FIRC, my last renewal was for my Gold Seal.  I'm currently flying single pilot EMS, though I still enjoy teaching, I wanted to not only get my renewal done quickly, but to get some worthwhile knowledge as well, this course was just what I was looking for.  I've always recommended King products for my students and used them for my initial ATP and later as a supplement for 135 indoc, I have high expectations for the King programs and this course met those expectations. The whole process was smooth, worked great on my iPad, complete with a fresh security awareness re-up and the online certificate renewal service saved me a ton of time.    King does it again, A+

This course is a major departu
This is a major departure form King courses I grew up with.  I was hoping for Video content like all the others and so far 3 modules in and zero video only text on the screen

I was hoping for a more interactive experience.  Reading an outline and taking a test was just a means to an end.

Great FIRC Value!
I originally started the course just to check the box and be done with it.  However, soon after beginning the course material and after examining the resources you provide, I realized that I had an enormous treasure trove of information available to me in virtually every module.  Oh, did I mention that I am an ATP with over 13,000 hours and fifty years of aviation experience behind me?  Well done ladies and gentlemen, well done!

Just awesome
After using another popular FIRC, getting halfway through and being completely bored and frustrated, I decided to try King's. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Easy to use format, lots of valuable information and reference material. Thanks again King Schools!!

Outstanding FIRC Course
Concise and to the point.  An excellent review for senior instructors.  I have kept my CFI Certificate active since 1959.  Note:  My regards to John and Martha.  I first met them in the 1970's during one of their Alaska training trips to Fairbanks, AK.

King FERC ~ A for Excellent
Just completed the King FERC, and came away very impressed.  The material was relevant, and presented in an easy to understand, engaging style.  The CFI is a license to teach and to learn.  Not surprisingly, I picked up a lot from the course which should make me a better instructor.  It was very convenient to have King Schools process the renewal with IACRA, but I didn't expect to also get a certificate for TSA Security Awareness Training, and earn Wings credits, too! Thank You, Gabe Wisdom

I like this course!
The CFI renewal is always a PITB ao I was pleasantly surprised 2 years ago when I first used this renewal program and have just completed it again this year. Instead of slogging throught the same old FOI etc, this course adresses more real world issues facing CFI's and how they can better prepare students for the real world of flying. For instance, I have been flying a PC12 for the last nine years single pilot in EMS and when I first took this course two years it opened my eyes to risk management. RM has been given lip service and we have forms to consult etc but I agree with the statements in the program that our primary job as piliots is Risk Management and when that breaks down, it opens the door for bad things to happen. Thanks for an instructional and relatively painless way to renew the CFI.

Everything I expected!
King is the only school I will ever use. When I discovered that King is now doing a FIRC it was a no-brainer. As I expected...they did it again! Thank you for a quality product and excellent experience.

Best FIRC
I've done different online courses and the King FIRC is the best by far yet. Easy to navigate and understand. No more having to get paperwork notirized and sending it. Best for the money at your own pace.
