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 16 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.

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

    You have lifetime access to your Online Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course. Remember, with the online media, the course is also automatically updated and will always be current.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

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

4 Stars
I truly believe King Schools is the way to go if you want to understand in depth all about instrument flying (which you should!) however as far as preparing me for the actual exam I would say that is what took it down from 5 stars to 4 stars. I would recommend King schools to anyone! Thank you!

Convenient for me
I seem to have an adult form of ADD and hard for me to sit and listen to fire hose of unfamiliar information for hours on end. So, formal classroom was out for me. I was able to take the course and hour or so at a time over about 3-4 weeks with several days of not working the course. Did end of course "push" with review....all 980+ questions...and reviewed the ones I missed so will over 1000 questions. Did pretty well on the test. Missed 4 ...in areas I thought I knew and answered correctly...maybe inadvertently placed selection....did that several times during the course. I took the test and finished in under one hour but did NOT go back through.

Useful for getting a Grasp
The practical prep lab is a good check to see how you would respond to typical scenarios presented by a real examiner; and how it may be presented. Though it suffers from State-of-the-Art flight equipment that almost no "regular" flight school would have, it does help to see how the flow of a ride might be.

This is a great review for those applicants who have access to a G1000 equipped Airplane. But for those who have steam gauges or older GPS systems. It would be great if you had a review focused on those that do not have A G1000 system with a coupled autopilot.

Great
I was stuck home during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order in Michigan. Prior to that, I had started my IFR training and had begun reading material and putting in XC hours. Since we couldn't fly, I decided to give this online course a try. I found it entertaining and very useful. I've taken about 7 practice IFR tests from this program and others and have easily passed all of them above 70% (above 80%!!). I would recommend this course to anyone. It easily saved me hours of reading and lots of $$$. Looking forward to taking my IFR written now that I'm well prepared.

Awesome Product!
I purchased the King online IFR course for the knowledge exam and am so glad I did. I spent about three weeks going through the course and took my time to make sure I was absorbing the information along the way. The video segments don't just show you the answers, they show you how to get the answers which is improtant since a lot of the questions on the exam are similar, but not the same as the ones in the course. I scheduled the exam and kept taking practice tests until the day of my knowledge exam. The practice tests really help you see any areas where you need to focus more. I took the exam and scored 95%. Thanks King Schools!

Emphasize Newer Approaches

Superb Course
I tried another study at home course, using just a book, and it hardly gave any information at all. It certainly didn't help prepare me for their practice tests. The King's course was excellent. The updates really made a difference as well. It's well worth the cost to have the updated materials. Along with the information you need to pass the FAA written, the King's give you lots of practical advice as well. The easy way to do holding is almost worth it all by itself! Thank you so much to Martha and John!

Wonderful course for the most part.
Wonderful course for the most part. This course helped me in many areas of my learning. But this was not the only course I was taking. I started this course prior to my start date of a 141 school. I continued this course simultaneously while in the 141 school. I also was using both ASA prepware practice exams and Sheppard Air study guide and practice exam. I indicated wonderful course for the "most part", cause I was surprised how much this course had airplane stuff since I purchased it as a helicopter course. I've been told by more then one instructor that the FAA knowledge exam will have airplane questions even though you are taking a helicopter exam. I've now taken Helicopter Private, Helicopter Instrument and Helicopter CFII exams. Out of all three (3) exams, totaling 170 questions, there was maybe 2 or 3 questions that could be deemed airplane type questions. I would not hesitate to use the King Schools courses!!! The methods John and Martha King use are very easy to follow and understand. Thank you for assisting me in my training. Some may argue that I was taking too many courses and exams simultaneously. But this is what I choose to do. It worked for me and my style of learning.

I'm not sure what I expected but this wasn't quite it. Martha had excellent knowledge but I don't think the questions covered enough. Barely any questions about weather, physiological effects, etc. While it was nice to see how a model checkride would go this would not prepare anyone for the knowledge portions unless they already knew the material.

Helpful
While the content is still useful overall. It needs an update in "look and feel" and current tools used.

Wonderful Course!!!
The Instrument Rating is the second course I have purchased. I need to study on my own pace because I have a family and would be difficult to attend school on regular basis. I would highly recommend the Instrument Rating course for its contents, its Online Aviation Library and Lifetime Access & Updates, prompt customer service. I would like to thank King School for all the effort to put this course together.

Good! Be Sure To Read Updates
This is excellent material. The videos do show some age on them (meaning there is some older terminology like "WAC") but King Schools provides a pdf in the upper right-hand corner the computer version of the course main page. On that pdf sheet, you'll find a list of the latest updates and even references to their respective AIM or FAR.

Makes Learning Fun
There is no other way to study for your pilot ratings. John and Martha make the content fun to learn. This is my second course from King and you can be assured I will use them again.

Passed the Test
I attended an in person IFR ground school in 2016 but never took the test. Three hour blocks of instruction just didn't work. Your online program is FANTASTIC! I'm working full time so it took me about 6 months to get through it, but I just scored 100% on the test and felt completely prepared. I especially liked the bite-size videos that fully explain the important points, as well as the test questions. You do an excellent job in taking a mountain of material and making is accessible. Thanks!

A bit dated, but very useful.
Very useful information. Some portions are quite dated. For example, DUATs no longer exists, but the main focus is accurate.

Good IFR Course
I purchased the Instrument Rating Ground School and Test Prep Course in July 2019, but didn't get serious about it until Nov. 2019. I took my time watching the videos and once I watched them all I went back through them again. The best part was going through all 938 questions several times. This gives you a good idea of what will be asked on the exam. However the FAA question are asked completely different 70 percent of the time you still have a good idea of what they're wanting. If I decide to go further on to get my CFI or commercial I'll purchase the courses from the Kings. BTW I met John and Martha King at the AOPA fly-in at Tallahoma TN and they are great people.......and funny.
