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 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?

King Schools, the ONLY choice!
I own two Private Pilot ground school courses, Sporty's and Kings. Kings is much more detailed, entertaining, easier to follow along and definitely the right choice. Sometimes watching Sporty's ground school I would just fall asleep. The videos are presented almost in its entirety in a monotone voice. They do have nice graphics though. Regarding King's videos, I would like to see in the future a Bookmark option.

Helpful course to pass exam
The course definitely helped me to pass the test and covered all relevant topics. The material in the online course are exactly the same as in the test, so you felt very familiar and comfortable during the test. I wished the online course would explain a little bit more the theory behind some topics. I sometimes had the feeling, all it does is to provide you the correct answer, but without a proper explanation. Thats why I rated 4 out of 5 stars. The presentation style could be a little bit more up to date, but thats what you expect from King schools :)

Great Place To Start
My experience at King School was great! The video format is great for self pacing and review. I thought the practice questions were great memory aids and helped me do well on the Knowledge Exam. I would say that I was unique though, because my family is full of aviators and it has been a passion on mine long before I started the course. Therefore, I think the videos and course only touches upon the questions that appear on the Knowledge Exam, but do not give great detail and full understanding into the topics. I think so of the videos are a little dated and just give you the information you need to get the question right, but not be a well rounded pilot. For someone who is brand new to flying I fell like they will need to do lots of extra reading and researching beyond this course. That is my only non-positive thought on King Schools. Its a great place to start!

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.

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.

Exhaustive & Detailed!
The Private Pilot Practical Test Course was a fantastic course that did a great job at covering many, if not all, bases for my upcoming Checkride!

The simulated checkride was extremely valuable, if for no other reason than to confirm what my instructor told me all along.

The nonstop jokes became a little grating by the end of the course even though they did a good job of demonstrating how friendly and cooperative the whole experience should be.

Makes learning easy
I really liked the structure of this course. Learning to fly can be overwhelming, but John and Martha are great at simplifying concepts in ways that stick with you. The corny jokes are outstanding.

One test down
Initially I was a little hesitant with taking the course because of the reported "new test format." In the end the Kings School prepared me very well. On to the next phase of PPL.
