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?

    These courses are designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA instrument rating Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA instrument rating Practical Test (a.k.a. Instrument Rating checkride).

    The King Schools pilot skills courses teach you not only the required skills that the FAA wants you to know, we teach you how to manage risks and how to handle situations that can arise unexpectedly during a flight.

    This package will save you money with your flight training as you will be steps ahead of your training reviewing & understanding techniques before your training flights.

  2. What are the system requirements for this course?

    Any device with an Internet browser and broadband Internet connection.

  3. Can I use my smartphone to view the course materials?

    Apple iPhone and iPad
    We recommend using the Safari browser.

    Free bonus! You can download your lessons and take them later on an iPad or iPhone—even when not connected to the Internet. The free King Schools Companion app allows you to view and complete lessons in your course when no Internet connection is available. The app will automatically sync progress between all of your devices when your iOS device returns online. The free app is available through the iTunes App Store by searching for "King Schools Companion."

    Follow the steps below to access your courses on your iOS device offline:

    • After you have created your iLearn account by following the instructions in the email you'll receive after you complete your order,
    • Download the King Schools Companion app through the iTunes App Store onto your iOS device while you are connected to the Internet.
    • Once your course(s) have finished loading, you can start studying offline!

    Android
    Your course is compatible with the Google Chrome browser on your Android device. The Chrome browser is available for free download from the Google Play Store by searching for "Chrome".

  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 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.

  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.
    • The Instrument Rating Practical Test Course contains approximately 7.5 hours of video.
    • Each pilot skills course vary 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.

  10. How do I get my WINGS credit for taking the course?

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.

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!

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.

Yet another home run after using the Kings help. I passed my IFR oral and practical exam with flying colors. It is always good to watch how the exam goes from beginning to end and see how the flow of the test might go. It was great for me to settle my nerves before taking my test as it showed me every detail along the way. Thanks again for equipping me with the tools I needed to succeed.

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!

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.

Awesome Weather Course

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.

This Course was very helpful!
I just successfully passed my IFR check ride today. Part of that success was seeing the Oral and Practice exam as it happened. This allowed me to focus on the material and not worry about how the exam would be given. In addition this course went way more in depth of the ACS to cover all the material that the examiner would draw from. Kings example responses were extremely valuable. I would highly recommend this course to any aspiring instrument pilot about to take your check ride.

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.

Just so so.
Website is okay. Fairly easy to navigate. Just wish there was more advise on what to product to select with details for grouped purposes. Need tailored videos on the products. Not just one generic useless reused one for all.
