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?

    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.

Best of the Bunch
I started in another online program and had nothing but trouble with their "hi-tech" learning system. After completing all of the video work and all of the prep work, their system lost my progress and demanded I start over. I am so thankful that happened. I never felt I was learning from their videos. This was the complete opposite of what I got when I found the King School. Every video felt like I was learning the material, not memorizing the questions or "having a chat with an experienced pilot". Sure it feels dated at times...but like that 150 yr old calculus textbook, the information has not changed! I passed my exam with a 96.7%. If you follow the recommendations, actually watch videos, and practice the material you will excel in your preparation and pass your exam. It costs a little more than many of the other options, but it is well worth the money.

Great course!
Website was very easy to use. Some of the icons were no very intuitive though. For example, not sure why the exit button was a parachute.

Absolutely Thorough and Fun!
As always, the Kings have set the standard above and beyond. if this doesnt get someone ready top notch and confident for their own checkride, i dont know what would. this will expose one's weak spot as well as give great suggestions for a Safe and satisfying career, or use of their instrument ticket. I am using this as my prep for ATP-135 Helicopter, as it is a fantastic thorough refresher for instrument work. I used King Instrument course twelve years ago for my own helicopter instrument, but today's option to keep current with the online courses is invaluable. Thank you King Kingdom!

thank you for your courses. eventhough you dont offer ATP helicopter, this helped me to get a 95% on the FAA ATP Written, and hopefully soon pass my practical and checkride! I obtained my rotorcraft \Heli Instrument with the help of your instrument course 11 yrs ago. your courses are a must, and thank you for the online versions now available so we can keep to date with the ever rapidly changing regs/procedures!

Good Solid Review
Course is great for a relatively brief review of the weather basics. Make note, this is not for a review of weather planning, just weather basics: clouds, precip, thunderstorms, icing, etc.

Luck is the same as prepared
It was fantastic going into my IFR Airplane test with the simple knowledge, that "Good Luck" was not necessary, I was WELL prepared. I have done both my Private and IFR with the tutoring of the King Schools. I have tested extremely well on both. I simply do not know how the best intentioned CFI or CFII could prepare someone to the level that is achieved with the courses provided here. While the course has done a great job of presenting the information as it is seen on the FAA exams, more importantly, the information is presented in a way that teaches the concepts, not just the answers.

Outstanding Course!
I have used Gleim, Jeppessen, and King Schools training programs in the past. King Schools is by far the best. While their videos can be cheesy at times, they do an excellent job of breaking down the material in easily understood, bite size chunks that you can easily work your way through. The test prep is exceptional and I was able to pass my exam on the first try. I highly recommend their course work for any level.

Passed Instrument test today
I have used king schools for both my PPL ( 2 years ago ) and now my instrument. I went into both tests confident and knowing I would pass the test. I used each exclusively and got the majority of my knowledge solely off these videos. I would most definitely use them again. Thanks John and Martha.

Good review

Class pacing slow but thorough
The pacing of the videos was a bit slow. Some areas I wanted to speed up the discussions. Since the aircraft sported a G1000 setup with autopilot, there wasn't as much attention given to hand flying and spacial awareness in the absence of the magenta line. Overall worth watching but start watching a couple weeks in advance of your checkride!

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.

Really procrastinated the first time through the course, inconsistently studying.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Great resource
I completed both, the ground school and check-ride training, with King's School. I feel like it prepared me very well for the written test and my check-ride. I would highly recommend a full course to every future pilot.

Passed!
Ended up getting an 80% on the written. It took me just under 5 weeks while going to school full time. You get what you put into it; work hard and you will pass no problem.

Another Home Run
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.

Passed my checkride!
The scores had me more than well prepared for the oral portion of the check ride. Having gone through this course gave me the confidence to do incredibly well in my own oral exam and would recommend that you take it as well, as it was very helpful, especially in planning the cross country flight and NAV log.

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.
