  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 Private Pilot 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.

Of course you can skip around if you chose but we recommend staying on the lesson path.

    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?

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?

I believe this is the best ground school you can get.
I believe this is the best ground school you can get. A bit more expensive but worth it. Just passed my test today with 95, and with King so can you, as long as you study daily for a couple of hours, I personally studied for 3-4 h aday. My plan is to use King for intrument and CPL as well!

Thanks for the confidence!
Studying textbooks could not help me fully understand the material needed to pass the flight test. I would take online and app exams with little success in passing. The online Kings School provided answers, structure, and understand why the answer is what it is. Afterward, I would pass the practice exams with flying colors. It gave the confidence I needed to walk into the testing site and say to myself, " I got this!".

Helped me ace my exam!
I am a full-time flight student at a major 141 flight school in the southeast. Although I went through the 141 ground school, half of the semester was online due to the pandemic. King schools helped fill in the gaps that I was missing through my ground training. The categorized approach in the lessons helped me ace my FAA written exam! Now that I have completed my written exam, the content provided by King Schools has helped me tremendously throughout my flight training and it has helped me become a more proficient and after pilot! I would recommend King Schools to every student pilot! Thanks John and Martha!

First try pass
I really enjoyed the videos and was thankful to be able to watch some repeatedly until I fully understood the lesson. I took the practice exams a few times. I appreciated that the relevant videos were available at the bottom of the screen so I didn't have to search for them. I recognized the majority of questions on the PAR exam, including the latest course updates. I'm really pleased with the cost and time of this course and highly recommend it. I know I have a lot more to learn, but I'm so thankful to have the pressure of the PAR off my back. Thank you, King School!

I Did It!
I was very pleased with the King course in how it helped me to prepare for the knowledge test. I delayed in taking the test since I don't fly frequently. I wish I had taken the test sooner. I also wish the incorrect answers better explained why it was wrong instead of just saying the wrong answer could be obtained by an incorrect calculation.

Great for Guided Tutoring
I have a group of 18 year olds that I'm tutoring for their PAR written exams. I decided to complete the software as they complete the software. It has been useful to know what was covered and how it was covered so I can help the students in areas where they got hung up on a question.

Just as promised!
Just as promised, I ordered the Private Pilot Course over 20 years ago that came with VHS tapes. Life events got in the way and I couldn't finish the course. This year, twenty years later, I called the King School and ask if the Trade In Guarantee still stands and they said Absolutely! I got the updated course for 50% off which basically paid for the first course. Just took the test and made a 97 out of 100. Im Thrilled! Thanks to everyone at the King School!

Great course
This was a great course with a ton of important information. I took this course before my flight lessons and it helped me prepare and have some knowledge going into the flight lessons. I passed the FAA exam on my first try because of the information I learned from this course. The videos were very interesting to watch.

Great Course
Loved the course, content, explanations, and tips. Easy to navigate both on desktop and mobile app. I ended up buying a study book too and loved that it came with the FAA testing supplement with all the figures. For the price paid to King Schools, I would be nice if they would mail one to you since it is absolutely necessary to perform the practice questions.

Studied the whole course in about 3 weeks, 3-4 hours everyday with weekend breaks.
Studied the whole course in about 3 weeks, 3-4 hours everyday with weekend breaks. The way I did it is write down every single important thing on a paper and pen while in the video lectures. This way you will remember the material better. I wrote about 22 pages worth of info at the end of the course! I took the PPL written today, 3 weeks from my start date, and got a 95%. Kings Schools REALLY helps you to become a safer pilot and actually LEARN the material in a fun engaging way, not just know the answers. John and Martha King have a bubbly personality and are very friendly. If only everyone in the world was as nice as them! Thanks to them, I passed my PPL written. Will now move onto instrument.

Not that pleased
I don't feel your system is up to date. Information was missed. Questions on the test were not covered. I tested mid to low 90's on your practice test, but do to the missing information I only scored a 85 on the FAA test.

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

Understand AND Memorize
I went with King as opposed to their competitors because I told myself the study product decision was "Understand OR Memorize". As an AvGeek, I didn't just want to memorize answers to pass, I wanted to truly understand. From the reviews it seemed that King does a good job of actual instruction, and I must say that they delivered in that regard. Sure, the videos have a bit of a dated feel but the content was solid. That being said, to truly be successful I had to "Understand AND Memorize". Even after consuming all the video content and practice questions, I still did a fair bit of memorizing questions and answers, which paid off, because I recognized 58 out of the 60 questions on my exam.

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

Extremely Helpful
I for one am a visual learner. John & Martha King made it easy for me to follow along and actually understand the content! I'm very happy to have used their program!

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

Fun and Concise!
This video course is exactly as much information as you need. It doesn't get overly bogged down in technical detail when you already understand the underlying concepts, so if you follow the lessons in order you shouldn't have any trouble staying on top of things! I love all the dad jokes peppered throughout. Keeps things light while you learn!

WORTH IT
Disclaimer: Everyone studies differently, so do what works for you, but here is how I ended up with a 97%.... As I went through the lessons and videos I had a separate file open and typed up notes, paused the videos, took screen shots, etc. During the questions portion, I took a screen shot of every one and created my own study guide, printing out the notes and questions for each section. When it came time to study for the exam, I completed all 3 practice exams and did an additional 4-5 randomly generated exams. I did not sign up to take the test until I was consistently getting in the 90's. Review the topics on the questions you get wrong, and do it again. Also, a cx-3 is an excellent investment and is allowed during the exam. It will save you some headaches using the whizwheel. I began the course on 3/5 and took the exam 5/16, devoting 3-4 nights a week for few hours each night. I also purchased an actual FAA Knowledge Prep course book and downloaded an app that was like going through questions in a flash-card style. Those were nice supplements to the King course, which was exactly what the exam was like. Thanks King Schools!

Good preparation
the course is very focused on the FAA questions, which good to some extend. Because many of the question you have in the training you will find in the FAA test. However, that leaf the risk that question which are unknown to Kingschool are not addressed in the training. I think a small expension just over the FAA questions would do great for this course. That sad, the course has the potential to prepare you to a passing grad. its on you to use the potential. The problem of the course could be the presentation of the raining questions. evenso there is an app is is only good to view the movies. if you like to learn on questions, you have to use the webpage. which is less stable then it is desirable. also the provided methods to learn are sub optimal. you can track your wrong questiins but that is about it. it should provide a learning mehid which repeats questions automatically until they are learned. There are many better ways out there. just oick one.

98% on my Exam! Thanks King!
This course is well worth the money! Many of the practice questions are word-for-word what you see on the real exam. The content is engaging and split up well to help you watch the material at any time possible. The practice question bank is expansive and if you go through it a few times, you feel very well prepared. The explanations were great as well. My only critique is the website feels slightly dated, and the iOS App occasionally didn't work well on playing back video.

Great way to learn!
Having a really busy work and life schedule made it impossible for me to take a traditional scheduled ground school. The King program was exactly what I needed in flexibility. The iPhone app is awesome! I downloaded all the lessons was able to study anywhere. I easily passed my exam, thank you!

This is a wonderful class
I found King schools to be a terrific resource to prep myself for the FAA written test. The explanations are super easy to follow, and the instructors are serving them with clarity and humor that is fun to watch. My only criticism is the somewhat dated interface, which reminds me of a 1990s website, but other than that, this is terrific!

A must have to save time
It took me over 2 yrs to decide and take the written although I never stopped flying and reviewed the videos. I finally decided to take it and did well. I did review throughout the 2yrs but finally concentrated and took it. It helped that I can take anywhere and review while I had down time.

I highly recommend it!
John and Martha break every topic down into easy-to-understand, bite-sized videos! I aced the written test and learned a whole lot along the way too! (some places just want you to memorize and regurgitate facts instead of learning the concepts, but not King Schools!)

Easy, Cheesy, Quick and Breezy
I took and failed my PP Knowledge exam, then I figured out that when I was in school for aviation, they skipped over the basics because everyone already knew it. I did not. When I heard that King had a well-worth-it course for private pilot knowledge I jumped on it and signed up; after all, it is the same price and a two hour flight! Thank you, King School!

The Best Test Prep Around!
The Kings are legends. My dad used them for his PPL and IR back in the 1980s, so when I decided to begin my aviation journey, I knew exactly who to turn to. They conveyed the information I needed to know in a clear, concise, easy to remember fashion. They actually taught me the material instead of trying to get me to just memorize the information. I know I will be back for my next exam!

Decent, but has gaps
Just passed the FAA Private Pilot Airplane exam, while I did pass on the first try, there were several questions the practice exam did not prepare me for.

Best I have seen!
I believe this is the absolute best way to prep for the written exam. Take your time and complete the course at least twice and commit to doing it as quick as possible! I work a full time job and am a full time single parent. I completed this entire course twice and reviewed multiple random areas of weakness in 20 days. On day 21 I completed my written exam with a score of 97%. Make the commitment and do it quick and it will pay off!

Had fun
I was able to learn the material and in a fun way. The acronyms helped a lot when it came to memorization.

Excellent prep course
The course has excellent coverage of all topics on the exam, and a near complete test bank. The only question which I was not familiar with was on ADS-B. I will definitely review the ADS-B requirement with my instructor, as I am operating around Seattle Class B airspace. I got a somewhat low score, but that was only because I did not follow Martha's advice to review the entire test bank. I took the course over a 6-7 month period, so I was rusty on some topics by the time I took the test. I did the three practice exams, but did not go through the entire test bank again.

95%! Thanks John & Martha!
Even after all these decades, John and Martha do not disappoint. While I was sitting in the exam room, I could hear John and Martha in my head saying "High to low, look out below!" and all their tried and true mnemonic devices! You will succeed if you take this course!

Wonderful stuff, great course!
Love John & Martha, this course was well worth the money. Took a while for some concepts to click, like high-to-low density altitude and VOR usage but after reviewing a few times I finally got it!! Thank you John & Martha, you two are great!

Great course
I was allowed to start a Jeppesen ground school course 8 days behind the rest of the class. I caught up in about a week and half but my brain was fried! I needed a break from the reading. Too slow paced and hard to stay motivated. I decided to go with King Schools to switch to a different learning method. Videos seem to work better for me. Kings Schools was easy to follow and kept me interested. It also allowed me to go to the gym. When it came to cardio time I could watch videos while on the elliptical and or bike. I continued to take both courses but didn't read much of the Jeppesen material any more. I took the FAA Knowledge exam a week after finishing both course and scored an 82%. I highly recommend this course!

One Step Closer
Thank you! Very Helpful, Organized. Systematically covered the material and reinforced with overlap when needed. Being able to print all the figures, maps, charts and being able to review was exactly like having the Test booklet available. The FAA Written Test was a Fair Test of the Knowledge Material for the PAR. King School Course gave me the material, confidence to Complete...but you have to study! K.Brady

Worked Great!
The course helped me know nearly everything I needed to know for the test. While very cross country planning based, the course covers all the basics and helps prepare you for the test and all practical applications as well.

This was an absolutely fantastic course.
This was an absolutely fantastic course. Both Mr. and Mrs. King clearly have not only a love and passion for aviation, but a love and passion for teaching as well, and it definitely shows in this course. I can say that not only do I feel confident to ace my written exam, I also feel like I have developed a genuinely solid foundation of aeronautical knowledge which I will carry with me for the rest of my career. Thank you for the great course, I will definitely recommend it to anybody who wants to learn.

Great Course!
This course is great for reviewing all the material that you will see on the FAA PAR exam. It's a lot of material, kind of like drinking from a firehose, so be prepared to put in some real effort and time if you want to get everything out of this course you need to get a great score on your written exam. As long as you put in the time, you'll do great on the test. I put in a lot of time and effort and was not surprised by any questions on my written exam.
