    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.
