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?

    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.

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.

*****
Overall the Kings Private Pilot Ground School course prepared me well for the FAA Written Exam. I felt as through I knew the material well going into the exam and I passed it with a score of 97%. I initially thought learning the volume of material for the exam would be impossible, but the King's course broke each area down into short, simple to understand videos. This also made it easy to go back and rewatch those where I needed to better understand a particular area. I will definitely use the King's courses for any additional ratings that I may pursue.

20 years ago - I owned the King Schools Private Pilot Training program on VHS. Due to life reasons, I never took the check ride. After making the decision to try again, Purchasing these courses from John and Martha was a no brainer.

I really thought I understood flight characteristics before course. After watching the Kings video course, I was so wrong. Thanks for explaining in depth & for filling the other 60% that wasn't explained and/or taught in such a thorough manner. This course imo, is a great video that teaches all of individual conponents, the why - how - and whats that really causes to find themselves in situations in first place.

Excellent Course!
I started my private pilot training in September 2018 without any previous knowledge or experience. King Schools was recommended to me by my CFI as a good option for ground school. I am very happy I decided to use this course. Three months later, I find myself to be competent and ready for my knowledge exam. This course is well designed with tons of essential information you will need. It is presented in a way that's easy to understand and I liked the cheesy humor that John and Martha throw in periodically. I highly recommend this course and will use King Schools again for future rating courses they offer. Thank you John and Martha!

Fantastic work.
Fantastic work. Had trouble with measurements on the sectionals due to doing this on a computer, but that's how it is online. No troubles here loved the jokes!

Everything needed, all-in-one
The King's School Private Pilot Test Prep program had everything needed to not only pass the test, but ace it to the highest possible level. Besides having the information needed to properly learn, it was also presented in such a way with nifty little memory tricks that enabled me to remember nuanced rules and regulations (ANDS for compass errors is a good example)
