The free King Schools Companion app allows you to view and complete lessons in your course when no Internet connection is available.

  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 Flight Instructor Written Test or Fundamentals of Instruction(FOI) 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 Flight Instructor Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 13.5 hours of video lessons.
    • The Fundamentals of Instruction(FOI) Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 3 hours of video lessons.
    • The Flight Instructor Practical Test (Checkride) Course contains approximately 6.5 hours of video lessons.
    • Each Pilot Training Course varies in running time from 34 minutes to 134 minutes. On average, each course is approximately an hour.

    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 Flight Instructor and Fundamentals of Instruction(FOI) Ground School & Test Prep Courses contain 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.

    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.
  9. Can I still access the course material after I complete the course?
    You have lifetime access to your Online Flight Instructor and Fundamentals of Instruction(FOI) Ground School & Test Prep Courses. Remember, with the online media, the course is also automatically updated and will always be current.
  10. 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.
  11. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?
    Check the PSI Exams website at https://faa.psiexams.com/FAA/login to find a testing location near you.

Unedited Customer Reviews
John is the bomb
The Flight Instructor practical test videos were average quality in terms of image resolution. However the content of the videos was amazing and certainly gave me knowledge to learn!
David S. 11/30/2022
CFI Practical Test (Checkride) Prep Course
Outdated.
Information is presented well, however the content is not sufficient enough to cover additional requirements and changes in the PTS and what is expected of an applicant since this course was last updated/created. I prefer King Schools to other online ground schools, but this course will not supply the knowledge required to pass a CFI oral. Large chunks of the PTS are not covered or even hinted at. Disappointed.
Alexander C. 11/24/2022
CFI Practical Test (Checkride) Prep Course
Not too short not too long
Very helpful but needs to be updated. This must be at least 30 years old. 90% of it is relative, but so much is changed as an a DSB, GPS electronic flight bags,etc
John W. 11/22/2022
CFI Practical Test (Checkride) Prep Course
Great Course!
The King FOI course was great and covered all of the topics thoroughly. I will be back for more training!

Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) Ground School & Test Prep
Practical CFI Review
It is helpful to see the gist of a practical flight test.  The video is from 1994 and I am writing this in 2022 so some updates might be in order.  Doing the CFI checkride in a Mooney is a nice touch.  Overall it helps with some overall expectations for the checkride.  This is one of many resources I am using as I get ready to start down the CFI road.
Mark H. 11/16/2022
CFI Practical Test (Checkride) Prep Course

Surviving Aircraft Systems Emergencies
Fantastic as always with King
You guys always do a great job at presenting this material.  Passed my instrument rating a year ago using your material and after a long break between, I am chasing down a Commercial Certificate and going back through your courses to get back up to speed.  Thanks for the help John and Martha you two are the best!
