  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 Instrument Rating 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.

  5. Is there a particular order to follow? Are some lessons easier than others?

    First, select the "Your Success Begins Here" menu icon on your Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course home screen. From there, you will learn how to use the course effectively with and gain insight to the features and benefits of 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.

    As you begin your flight training lessons, you will want to review the pilot skills courses as they will tie into your practical flying.

    Once you have passed the FAA Instrument Rating Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Instrument Rating Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Instrument Rating practical test (a.k.a. Instrument Rating checkride).

    Some lessons will be more challenging than others. 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 Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 14 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.

  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 Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course contains 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.

  8. How do I access my course completion certificate?

    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.

  9. Can I still access the course material after I complete the course?

    You have lifetime access to your Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course. 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. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

    Just make sure the email address in your King Schools iLearn account matches your WINGS account. We will automatically grant WINGS credit when you complete the course. For more information, click here.

  12. Now that I finished the course, what´s next?

    Consider purchasing King Schools Instrument Rating Practical Test Course if you haven´t already. This course will prepare you for your instrument rating checkride (Also referred to as the instrument rating practical test). It includes footage on how to flawlessly execute in-flight maneuvers as well as prepare you for the oral test. Your passing the test is guaranteed!

Crushed my IR Test!!!
Yes, I studied my butt off, but this course gave me the 99% of the information, and the framework to do it. I really did enjoy this course. Here's how I approached studying. I went through the videos, AND took notes. I occasionally supplemented with more internet research (mostly just because I was interested). I then studied my notes and went back and re-watched a few video segments. I took two of three required mock FAA tests as part of the course (three required for King sign-off to take FAA exam). Then it happened. Life got in the way, and I completely stopped for almost 2 years. So, I went through the whole course again (parts had been updated). I updated my notes as I went through it. It was great review, and I definitely understood much more the second time. I restudied my notes and then took the 3 tests required to get King sign off. Then as final review before FAA exam, I went back and re-answered all the questions that I had EVER missed (easy to get these) - did that until I understood them. This course really did help me prepare, so much so, that I just bought the King Instrument Rating Practical Test Course. Yes, I took the Instrument written before starting on the flying - I'm 1000% sure this knowledge will help me. Oh!!! ONE IMPORTANT TIP - you can get a plugin for your browser that lets you speed up and slow down the videos (e.g., "Video Speed Controller" for chrome). This is gold, especially for re-watching parts. Hope that helps.

Decent
Kings was easily a 5/5 for my private pilot. That being said, there was a lot of information in Instrument Training that I feel could have been condensed to shorter videos. There were often videos that took too long to get to the subject matter. That being said, kings will not fail you and you will pass using kings. It is just very lengthy compared to other sources I have used.

Extremely Thorough !
Course was extremely thorough and logical in formatting. I recently took another course from another company as I did my private there, it was severely lacking compared to King. I actually had more questions than answers when I completed it. The King course is by far superior and I have no questions gone unanswered. I feel well prepared for the written. Excellent job King!

Great Content
I really enjoyed the lessons. I have the original 3.5" disk when I took the PP ground school in 1994. I have been out of flying for the past 20 years and decided to get back in the sky. After getting my BFR I decided to get serious and get my Instrument rating. Great new format with the online learning. Very thorough with all the new regulations, wow have things changed. Just finished the FAA Knowledge Test and all went well. Thanks again for all your help. Now i'm on the practical side then Multi and commercial. A big congratulations on the Hall Of Fame induction!

Passed with ease!
Even though I purchased the IFR written course several years ago, I just never seemed to find the time to finish until 2 weeks ago. It was great knowing that the course is always up to date. I went through it completely one time and completed the test with an 88%. Thank you John and Martha!

I felt 100% prepared!
I have always been skeptical about online learning courses, but I had been recomended to Kings by another student and I thought I'd give it a shot. I was NOT dissapointed, and neither will you be. This course prepared me extremely well, and I went into the FAA test feeling confident and ready. It really works!

I passed easily
Really procrastinated the first time through the course, inconsistently studying. Then I really buckled down and was able to do the entire course and rework all the questions in a little over a week after work in the evenings. Felt confident going into the exam and many of the questions we very similar.

Passed Test With Ease!
The instrument test was a breeze after using the King Schools videos. I started the videos more than a year ago and was excited to see updated videos appear over the past 6 months. The new videos really helped due to the updated materials and technology. I made a 95% on the knowledge test; only missing 3 questions. Love John and Martha’s style!

King Schools Again!
I used King Schools back in 2001 for the PPL and really liked the course. So when I went back for the IFR 18 years later I went right to King again and was delighted to see the quality only became better. I'll keep coming back. Great work!

Accurate course information
The IFR written course was easy to complete at my own pace and was very accurate with respect to the content seen on the exam.

     
Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Test Course - Online

 

Great study tool!
Makes it easy to isolate your trouble spots and concentrate on them. I need lots of repetition to get all of the wrote data to stick! It is very convenient to click on the video again, for a question I answered a week ago but now can't remember some detail. You definitely need to understand concepts with the new unpublished FAA test questions and this course teaches concepts!

Right on Target
This five star course perfectly matches what the FAA is looking for and maximizes learning efficiency. The short vignettes can be watched on or offline making it possible to study whenever a spare moment can be had.

Thumbs up except cost
I enjoyed this course, and learned everything I needed to know. I can’t help but wish it would’ve been more in line costwise with other courses.

     
Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Test Course - Online

 

messy
by going step by step, I found it difficult to understand the whole "picture". The material is not well orginizied. and I am still missing the line that connects all the dots. Much more then in the PPL, some of the explanations were too shallow, and were ment to give the right answers to the right question in the right FAA test, and not to explain what's behind the answer. That's not the reason I choose king school. I hope it will still be good enough for the test.

Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Test Course - Online

 

I passed! Yippeeee!
I was a little uneasy going in for my IFR knowledge test, but was able to pass with an 80%. I would love to have had a higher score, but truth be told I had not been able to take any IFR training flights due to a physical injury and I feel that put me at a disadvantage. The information was well presented, but having not seen how it applied in the cockpit made it a little more difficult to mentally process the information in a way as to truly understand the material. If there is anything I would recommend, it would be to take a few training flights before taking the test. I feel that my score would have been much higher if I had.

Always Get Good Scores w/King
I bought & started the IFR ground school course several years ago with the hopes of starting my Instrument training. It took a few years before I actually started, but my King purchase was still good. I used it again, in conjunction with my Part 141 ground school to study for my written. I got a 95% on my Instrument Airplane exam and 96% on my CFII exam. I love the King courses!

     
Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Test Course - Online

 

Great Course!
In my opinion, the King Schools' Instrument Rating course is fantastic. I could study on my own pace and at any time of the day, considering my responsibilities. The videos accompanied with books and equipment (E6B, etc.) have been enough to learn for the Written Exam as well as for several flight practices. Really easy to understand and, if I had any questions, I could contact customer services. I thank the King Schools' team to compile this course.

Fantastic course
Passed the Instrument written with ease after using this course. I will note that the actual FAA test questions were very different from the practice test ones but the King teaching method really works and prepared me for them. Needless to say, I am happy with the results.

Really enjoyed the course
The online course is very well done. John and Martha explain even the most difficult concepts in an intuitive and easy to memorize manner. The test questions are spot on and the additional features allow for efficient exam prep. I did 90% of my Instrument Knowledge Exam prep with Kings School and couldn't have asked for better material.

PAssed with a 95%
The King videos were outstanding. Yes, some of the videos are a bit dated, but the material is relevant and is updated for changes in regulations, procedures, etc. John & Martha were entertaining and their methods not only made it easy to remember the material, but to understand it so you could apply it to the questions on the exam!

Great Course!
Both Private Pilot and the Instrument Rating courses worked very well for my needs. Being able to study at my own pace and time have been one of the most important things. Also, the well-explained videos and books have helped me accomplish my goals. The customer service and the material update have turned the entire course into a great experience. I appreciate all the effort and work that King School and associates have put into these courses.

Relevant material & questions!
The course was excellent and not only was the material directly relevant to the the written instrument exam but also as a true ground school providing thorough examples to interpret the approach/departure procedures and actual weather reports. Beyond the three required practice exams I did one random exam and one pass through all questions ever answered incorrectly; actual exam was a non-issue! The online format worked perfectly across Windows, Linux, and Android systems for me. The format allowed me to make the most of my limited time and I am sure I will make use of the videos for future review.

Great Course
Very Thorough and detailed. Lots of practice questions and great ability to go back an re-work questions and look at videos again. Just noticed based upon a warning and being kicked off from one of the sources that only one source can be logged in at once. I recommend two being allowed if on the same server IP address, as I had one to access the legend (which I didn’t want to print) and the other for test questions. Ultimately I downloaded the legend into my computer while I used the iPad for questions, but it would be nice to not have to do that if not required. Just a suggestion, but I understand if you are trying to protect your IP from multiple users using it. In the end it worked out for me, I just had to save the PDF of the legend to be able to use it while answering questions.

The best way to learn!
I am a private pilot who decided to go after my instrument rating. When I first started the ground work I spent two weeks reading books on my own and self testing with various apps. I became frustrated with my progress and my inability to retain much of what I was reading. I saw an add for King Schools and decided to give it a try. It was the best decision I could have made. Not only did I make rapid progress, but I retained almost all of the information straight away. I highly recommend to anyone who is furthering their aviation knowledge.

Great as always
Another successful course with the kings. This is my fourth course with them now. I have used John and Martha for other courses that are non-rating as well and their never come up short. As an Air Traffic Controller, I will continue to use and recommend King Courses and look forward to my Commercial and CFI courses with the Kings. Thank you John and Martha for your continued commitment to excellence in this industry.

Thank you so so so much!!!
I read on an online forum that the King Schools was the best preparation for the Instrument Rating Airplane, and so I purchased the course and completed it. The best thing about the course was that I didn't just learn the answers, I actually learned the reasons, the facts, the theory etc for the instrument rating. Test day was today and I received a 98% on my IRA exam...absolutely thrilled with that result!!! Thank you, John and Martha!

Most of the video's in this course have been updated recently, which is a good thing. The practice exams were pretty accurate to what was on the actual test. I took every question again for the course and then took each practice exam again and again until my scores were above 90%. Passed yesterday with a 93%

Passed with no issues!
The program was easy to follow and covered everything you need to know for instrument flying. I passed the written with 'flying colors.'

Martha & John Thanks
It almost like you end up being friends with Martha and John. Johns about corny and Martha seems like she wants you to get it. I passed with an 85 which for me was great.

Good course
The King's course prepared me for the IFR written exam! I passed with a 92%. The videos help you learn the material so you can be prepared for your checkride as well. I recommend the King videos over other options.

No better class on the market.
If you are looking for the most comprehensive, and best taught course on the web look no further than King Schools. Their instrument course is the best course out there. I have tried all of the competition and demo'd them all and the King was the best bar none!

It worked
All in all not a bad option. I stretched their prep over about a year and wish I wouldn’t have. Would be much better to watch the videos over a month or two, cram fro the test, and take it. I’m neither happy with nor dissatisfied with the course but can’t find anything particularly negative that King specifically did to disappoint me.

Success!
I was able to pass my IFR test with confidence. When I started through the lessons I felt that this might be very daunting, and I felt that for quite a bit of the videos. As they went along, I started gaining an understanding of the relationship between each of the lessons and how they all fell together. By the end I understood each principle and why they were important. Thanks to the Kings for the format and how it works well with my learning style. Paul

IGI and FII Prep review
I found this course work to more than adequately cover all of the material that I needed for the Instrument Ground Instructor and the FII Knowledge tests. It took me about three weeks of evening study to work through all of the modules and drill on the practice exams.

Great course/Updates needed
The course is great and gave me a level of understanding far beyond what I would have if I had merely memorized the questions. However, the questions on the FAA exam were quite different than the ones given on the King practice tests. That definitely increased my “pucker factor” when I began anwering the questions on the FAA knowledge test. Luckily, the course gave me enough general IFR knowledge to work my way through the most of the questions and finish with a passing score. However, I don’t believe I will exclusively rely on the King courses going forward to ensure that I pass FAA exams.

I passed my IFR the first time
With help from the King IFR course I was able to pass the written test the first time. From someone who has taken the written, let me assure you that it is no walk in the park. The FAA has made this test really difficult and hard to pass, but if you will study like John and Martha recommend , you will pass too.

Good study guide
I was expecting over 95% but I think I made some obvious mistakes so I received an 80%. I did 97% in my private using Kings School but hey I at least passed the IRA. Now on to Oral and Checkride.

Great Course!

Works every time!
I have used King Courses for both my private pilot and instrument courses. I have always felt extremely well-prepared for the written exams and have provided an outstanding foundation for understanding the concepts necessary to pass the practical exams. My only criticism is that in the explanations for the questions following the individual modules and the practice exams, detail is lacking as to why the incorrect answers are wrong, often stating essentially that the answers are wrong because they’re not the right answer. However, the proper video module is available with each of the questions to review the material again without having to search for it. Overall, I have been extremely satisfied!

Great Instrument Prep Course
Well laid out and effective videos teach you the material you need to know for the written exam. Study at your own pace and use online or app quizzing to reinforce what you've learned.

Great test prep.
Great test prep. Practice exams were very similar to the actual exam, so I felt very comfortable and confident on test day. Though the wording of the actual test questions was different, I felt as though I had seen a King practice question related to every topic that showed up on the exam.

Worth every penny, amazing!
I scored 93% in my instrument rating and 94% in my CFII thanks to this course 1 year later after I bought it, It keeps current and helps you refresh your knowledge by always being handy when you need it to brush up.

Got it finished!
I compared Kings to Sporty's and there are differences for sure. Kings was simpler for me, and easier to remember based on their content and approach. I did find a few needed updates, but they responded very quickly to help.
