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 private pilot Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA private pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. Private Pilot 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 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.

  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 Private Pilot 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 Private Pilot Knowledge Test, it´s time to start your Private Pilot Practical Test Course so you will ace your FAA Private Pilot practical test (a.k.a. Private Pilot 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 Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 15 hours of video lessons.
    • The Private Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 6.5 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. You can also email us at custserv@kingschools.com - We have a full staff of pilots and flight instructors available to answer your questions. 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 Private Pilot 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 Private Pilot 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. Where do I take my FAA Knowledge test?

    Check the FAA.gov website at http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/media/test_centers.pdf to schedule your test at a testing location near you.

  11. How do I find a FAA Medical Examiner to schedule my physical?

    Check the FAA.gov website at http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/ to find an examiner. You need pass your physical before you can solo.

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

Loved The Course
I was warned I may find the videos and accompanying humor obnoxious but that the content was solid. Turns out I love the humor and the content is amazingly dense yet understandable. Great course and absolutely worth the money. I felt like I learned and not just memorized too which was a worry of mine going into the course.

Very Impressed
I was taking a ground school course in my area and it was great...however retaining the information was not so great. I'd have to go back week after week, paying to refresh on the things I was already taught...This got very frustrating and expensive. In doing a search to get better at understanding airspaces, I ran across one of your instructional videos online. You all broke it down so clear and the huge prop behind you showing me exactly what you're talking about was exactly what I was needing to put the dots together in my mind...On top of that, if I had any questions, I could just hit replay and watch it over and over again. I took the plunge and just bought the entire course package. I am so impressed, the videos that I purchased seemed to be way more in depth and you all do a phenomenal job being as detailed as possible...I grateful for your hard work and dedication to getting this course out there for us. The staff also in customer service have always been kind and courteous...Great job you all around.

Fantastic Course
What a great course. I took a couple of years to get through it due to being posted overseas, and it was great to get the updates and use the companion app. The length of each module is appropriate and John and Martha’s presentation style keep even the most mundane topics interesting. After my checkride my DPE commented on my command of the knowledge during both the oral portion and questions during the checkride. I look forward to taking the King course for my instrument rating. Thanks!

Trust The Process
The PAR course was very easy to follow and the practice exams made a great simulation of the actual exam by the FAA. Recommend the course to everyone. I start at ATP in May 2019, but decided to complete my PAR written before starting. Coming in from Zero flight time, King Schools made it very easy to learn the materials for the FAA PAR Exam. The videos may not seem fancy for 2019, but they have all the necessary information to ace the exam.

Great Visuals!
This ground course was a very helpful course in terms of visuals and their explanations. I am not the type of person at all to sit down and read textbook to help me study. I am all about visuals because that's the only way I learn! Even my notebook with notes to help me study that I took from this course are all colorful with highlights and different diagrams. I am very happy I took this course being it helped me prepare for the written and doing it quickly. I did very little ground with my instructor because I had this long pause between my solo and now, my Checkride prep. King Schools really helped me in check with the theory aspect of aviation and flying. From the perfect green screen used to the amusing jokes that Martha and John cracked, I was kept entertained all the way through!

What a relief!
The check ride, in my opinion, is the most terrifying upcoming event in all the private pilot training milestones. Not because you can't meet all the requirements, but because you don't know exactly what to expect. This course changed all that and gave me a sense of ease. I'm not scared of the checkride anymore now that I know what to expect. Great course, highly recommend!

Great Program to Take!
King School is simply excellent. The videos are dry, but filled with all the information a Private Pilot should know! It was extremely beneficial going to an instructor, and showing my knowledge of the theoretical and conceptual subjects that go along with flight training. He was impressed, and my progress was accelerated with my prior knowledge learned from John and Martha. The best part is getting FAA questions to practice, and to test yourself, which are required to complete the course before endorsement! Thank you to the both of you for your time and effort in helping future pilots like myself!

Very Thorough!
Very thorough and well laid out course. Videos explain the content very well. I personally struggled with the flight planning and weight and balance portion. The videos made sense but when I went to answer exam questions I completely blanked out on how to figure those out. I also didn't realize I would need a flight computer and plotter so I didn't get to practice using them. I really enjoyed how fun the course was. Key items were repeated multiple times to reinforce the correct information.

Great Preparation Course
I took this more for a review for the oral test, because after all, performing the maneuvers correctly takes practice. It provided more than enough information - anything the instructor could ask you that's not specifically related to the aircraft you're doing the check ride in is covered. Even if you're rusty on some maneuvers, this course explains how to approach them. I felt very prepared going into my check ride, and passed on the first try.

Well worth it!!!!
Fantastic course. I found he King’s entertaining and very easy to follow. I was nervous going into the test but by the time I was 30 questions in I found I was totally prepared! Just follow the test prep and by the time you take finish the 3 practice tests you will feel completely at ease. The best part was the fact that I finished the test with an hour to spare.

Excellent Course
The king schools is such a great tool. It is an excellent aid to memorize the vast amount of information that is required. As well, to help "chair fly" and get you ready to apply what you know with confidence!

Great
This was my very first online lessons for my private pilots license. At first it was pretty confusing because it was all new information for me, but the Kings explained the topics very well and now I feel confident.

Super effective and enjoyable!
The tricks for simplifying and remembering large amounts of otherwise confusing info is awesome. The fact that they make it fun and very achievable is quite a feat and well worth the money spent. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in a heart beat!

Excellent program
I recently passed my PP written exam with a score of 95% and I attribute much of that to the training that I received through the King Schools PP online course.

Great product to learn from
I enjoyed the convenience of video training followed by a short quiz to reenforce what waas covered. I especially like the Mother-in-law jokes!

I needed this course!
I just finished doing landings couple of days ago, my CFI was telling me that I can't pull up to stall speed in my flare and expect sink slowly to the ground even though my 182 will slow fly pretty good at stall speed in ground effect for a little while. Your course planted several things in my mind. I will probably take it again just to further those mindbits, but I believe I will improve my stability on my landing approaches, now. It helped much. Thanks.

Great Intro to communications
I think this course is a fun, informative, introduction to pilot communications and is a great place to start for new pilots or refresh for rusty pilots.
