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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

Good Review Needs Update
This was a good review but needs to be updated to cover WASS GPS Approaches as an example LPV, VNAV and LNAV. Note the use of display in TERM, LPV, of LNAV. Also key aspects of OBS vs GPS guidance.

Excellent course!
I've had my instrument rating for ten years and this was an excellent refresher. I plan to incorporate this into my regular proficiency training.

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.
