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 PSI Exams website at https://faa.psiexams.com/FAA/login to find 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?

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!

John and Martha make radio work make sense. This is an invaluable course, not onlu for student pilots but for rusty pilots, like myself, getting ready to get back in the air.

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.

     
Private Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course - Online

 

I passed!
For a brief moment, King School helped me become the newest private pilot in the world. The video guides are great, and cover lots of relevant information.

Great Course
Very straightforward, their attitude put me at ease about this challenging exam. Clear, thorough, and made me feel it was OK to not know everything about aviation and to make mistakes and still be a very good and safe pilot, which I don't hear often in my actual training. It was very comprehensive and a positive and kind approach

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.

Good course, feels a bit old
This course was a great review prior to my Private Pilot Checkride. Lots of good tips along the way. Some of the content could use an update, such as discussion of navigation systems and weather briefings, but overall a nice complement to the other King courses I have taken.

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 real world
It would be nice to update the video. Although I love Martha and John, I am certain that someone there would like to take a cross country with a GoPro. If you can accompany the video with maps that can be printed i could follow along. Invite the viewer to pause the video so we can have time to reference the maps and use the E6-B to make calculations. That way i can get real world experience on my computer. Thank you for the great videos.

Loved the course, content, explanations, and tips.

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.

Used this course and a written book together to prep for the private pilot test and did well. Good format and convenient small chunks to work through as time allows. Practice tests are very useful.

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.

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.

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!

Great Tips!!!
This course provides a great visual insight and great head start on becoming skilled at the important aspects of takeoffs and landings! It provided me with a great confidence boost to already have these types of visual aides and knowledge before my feet even left the ground!
