  1. Is this kit right for me?
    These courses are designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA Instrument Rating Knowledge Test.
     
    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 kit 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.

    Android

  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 Instrument Rating 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. What do I study first?
    First view the "Your Success Begins Here" video on how to use the course effectively and gain insight to the features and benefits of the course. If you scroll down past the video, you will find an outline with additional tips and information. Once you start 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.
     
    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 Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 16 hours of video lessons.

    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 Instrument Rating 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.
    course question tool bar

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

Great product.
In all honesty i was hesitant on purchasing the big package. I've just started flying in the US from Australia but genuinely impressed with the resources and information. If you are 100% going to need all the resources then go the big one but i didn't need it as the general instrument written theory was more than enough to do the exam with. I do highly recommend Kings material.

Teaches knowledge and skills…
I felt like I actually had the knowledge and skills to answer the questions on the FAA exam. I also tried another test-prep course and felt like they taught you to memorize answers, rather than actually imparting knowledge. I suppose either way works, but when I took the FAA written exam and saw questions I’d never come across before, I just relied on the knowledge-base I’d gotten from the King Schools course.

Provided a good foundation
I used the Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep course to prepare for my knowledge test, and I feel it prepared me pretty well for the test.  But beyond that, the material does a good job at laying the foundation for learning to fly IFR.  I'm only a few hours into my instruction, but I feel that the information I picked up from the test prep course makes it much easier for me to communicate with my instructor, and to know what he is expecting of me as we progress through his flight lessons.

Love you guys!!!
So this is the 3rd course I have taken through kings...Absolutely love John and Martha's ability to make the fire hydrants worth of information not only stick, but recall as well.  The instrument ground took 4 days to get through, then another week to do it again (while taking notes)...then 10 days of studying before the IRA, to which I got yet another 100%!!!

The Instrument Rating Ground School & Test Prep Course was very helpful in preparing for the written. I followed the course exactly as recommended. It took many, many hours to review all of the questions. I was also very happy with the Instrument Rating Practical Test Course. It very thoroughly explained what can and will happen during your Instrument checkride; oral and flight.

Compared to the private pilot, the written for the instrument was more challenging. But I feel like Kings online ground school prepared me a lot for the test. From my experience the private pilot written was word for word on the written and it only took me 30min, but the instrument written was in different wording so it made me take an hour to do it. But do not just memorize the question, its better to actually know the content that they are asking. :)

Convenient for me
I seem to have an adult form of ADD and hard for me to sit and listen to fire hose of unfamiliar information for hours on end. So, formal classroom was out for me.   I was able to take the course and hour or so at a time over about 3-4 weeks with several days of not working the course.  Did end of course "push" with review....all 980+ questions...and reviewed the ones I missed so will over 1000 questions.  Did pretty well on the test.  Missed 4 ...in areas I thought I knew and answered correctly...maybe inadvertently placed selection....did that several times during the course.   I took the test and finished in under one hour but did NOT go back through.

I was stuck home during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order in Michigan.  Prior to that, I had started my IFR training and had begun reading material and putting in XC hours.  Since we couldn't fly, I decided to give this online course a try.  I found it entertaining and very useful.  I've taken about 7 practice IFR tests from this program and others and have easily passed all of them above 70% (above 80%!!).  I would recommend this course to anyone.  It easily saved me hours of reading and lots of $$$.  Looking forward to taking my IFR written now that I'm well prepared.

I scheduled the exam and kept taking practice tests until the day of my knowledge exam.  The practice tests really help you see any areas where you need to focus more. I took the exam and scored 95%.

Wonderful course for the most part.  This course helped me in many areas of my learning.  But this was not the only course I was taking.  I started this course prior to my start date of a 141 school.  I continued this course simultaneously while in the 141 school.  I also was using both ASA prepware practice exams and Sheppard Air study guide and practice exam.  I indicated wonderful course for the "most part", cause I was surprised how much this course had airplane stuff since I purchased it as a helicopter course.  I've been told by more then one instructor that the FAA knowledge exam will have airplane questions even though you are taking a helicopter exam.  I've now taken Helicopter Private, Helicopter Instrument and Helicopter CFII exams.  Out of all three (3) exams, totaling 170 questions, there was maybe 2 or 3 questions that could be deemed airplane type questions.  I would not hesitate to use the King Schools courses!!!  The methods John and Martha King use are very easy to follow and understand.  Thank you for assisting me in my training.  Some may argue that I was taking too many courses and exams simultaneously.  But this is what I choose to do. It worked for me and my style of learning.

Good IFR Course
I purchased the Instrument Rating Ground School and Test Prep Course in July 2019, but didn't get serious about it until Nov. 2019. I took my time watching the videos and once I watched them all I went back through them again. The best part was going through all 938 questions several times. This gives you a good idea of what will be asked on the exam. However the FAA question are asked completely different 70 percent of the time you still have  a good idea of what they're wanting. If I decide to go further on to get my CFI or commercial I'll purchase the courses from the Kings.

Generally solid preparation
I did not feel that the Instrument course provided the same comprehensive level of preparation provided by the PPL course. Everything that WAS presented was presented very well. I DID learn a great deal from the course, but my 97-100% scores on the practice exams translated to 90-93% level scores on actual instrument exams. This was due to the King course failing to emphasize some items and in some cases the King course either not covering the items at all or otherwise not providing any preparation for them. The King course IS definitely worth the money, in my opinion - translating to both good performance and deeper understanding, but I wish I had supplemented my test prep with other sources (besides the FAA primary material - which I read carefully).

Got a 95% on my written!
I will admit I was skeptical at first, but I wanted to give the written test prep course a honest try.  I watched all of the videos and took notes during each one (as if I was back in school).  It took me about 12 days (1-2 hours ever day or two) to finish the entire ground school.  I took the three required practice exams, then did two additional "randomized questions" exams.  I reviewed and took further notes on any missed questions each time (this is important!).  I studied my notes for about 90 minutes (45 minutes one day, 45 minutes the morning of my exam).  I did not do any 'on my own' research or use any other reference materials - I did not read any of the other IFR prep books, etc - I only used the King ground school program (and I realize this looks like a fake review or that they told me what to do/say, but that is NOT the case).  I really wanted to know if I could rely on the King method to take me all the way to CFI, so this was kind of a litmus test to that effect.  Long story (and review) short, I am very pleased and earned a 95% on my written test (first time)!  I am already signed up for their commercial pilot ground school and test prep program!

I have used King’s Schools for both Private and IFR. I tried another company but it was not as organized and didn’t teach the material. I will continue to use King’s for all of my ratings.

IRA and FII
I took the instrument rating written (IRA) and got and 88. I then went and took the instrument instructor written (FII) immediately after finishing my IRA exam and got an 82. The instrument rating course for king ground school will prepare you well enough to take both exams back to back. I would absolutely recommend taking them both.

Tried many. King is the best!
Having done the weekend ground school with American flyers and the Sportys online, I managed to fail the Written. Having that failure a few years ago I needed to be instructed using old school charts and methodical teaching style. I felt once I completed the online Instrument King course that I could pass the test. With 28 minutes remaining I hit the finish button. My score shows that I still have work to do but I'm sure I will find the course materials within the King videos. Very happy with the product. Looking forward to all the future ratings with King as my ground online instructors. I'm not in anyway discounting the other products. I now believe that different pilots learn in different ways. The same as when a particular instructor may not be a match when learning how to fly. If you want guaranteed results look no further.

Best of the Bunch
I started in another online program and had nothing but trouble with their "hi-tech" learning system.  After completing all of the video work and all of the prep work, their system lost my progress and demanded I start over.I am so thankful that happened.  I never felt I was learning from their videos.  This was the complete opposite of what I got when I found the King School.  Every video felt like I was learning the material, not memorizing the questions or "having a chat with an experienced pilot".  Sure it feels dated at times...but like that 150 yr old calculus textbook, the information has not changed!  I passed my exam with a 96.7%.  If you follow the recommendations, actually watch videos, and practice the material you will excel in your preparation and pass your exam.  It costs a little more than many of the other options, but it is well worth the money.

Luck is the same as prepared
It was fantastic going into my IFR Airplane test with the simple knowledge, that "Good Luck" was not necessary, I was WELL prepared. I have done both my Private and IFR with the tutoring of the King Schools. I have tested extremely well on both. I simply do not know how the best intentioned CFI or CFII could prepare someone to the level that is achieved with the courses provided here. While the course has done a great job of presenting the information as it is seen on the FAA exams, more importantly, the information is presented in a way that teaches the concepts, not just the answers.

I have used Gleim, Jeppessen, and King Schools training programs in the past. King Schools is by far the best. While their videos can be cheesy at times, they do an excellent job of breaking down the material in easily understood, bite size chunks that you can easily work your way through. The test prep is exceptional and I was able to pass my exam on the first try. I highly recommend their course work for any level.

Crushed my IR Test!!!
Yes, I studied my butt off, but this course gave me the 99% of the information, and the framework to do it.  I really did enjoy this course.  Here's how I approached studying.  I went through the videos, AND took notes.  I occasionally supplemented with more internet research (mostly just because I was interested).  I then studied my notes and went back and re-watched a few video segments.  I took two of three required mock FAA tests as part of the course (three required for King sign-off to take FAA exam).  Then it happened.  Life got in the way, and I completely stopped for almost 2 years.  So, I went through the whole course again (parts had been updated).  I updated my notes as I went through it.  It was great review, and I definitely understood much more the second time. I restudied my notes and then took the 3 tests required to get King sign off.  Then as final review before FAA exam, I went back and re-answered all the questions that I had EVER missed (easy to get these) - did that until I understood them.  This course really did help me prepare, so much so, that I just bought the King Instrument Rating Practical Test Course.  Yes, I took the Instrument written before starting on the flying - I'm 1000% sure this knowledge will help me.Oh!!!  ONE IMPORTANT TIP - you can get a plugin for your browser that lets you speed up and slow down the videos (e.g., "Video Speed Controller" for chrome).  This is gold, especially for re-watching parts.  Hope that helps.

Decent
Kings was easily a 5/5 for my private pilot. That being said, there was a lot of information in Instrument Training that I feel could have been condensed to shorter videos. There were often videos that took too long to get to the subject matter. That being said, kings will not fail you and you will pass using kings. It is just very lengthy compared to other sources I have used.

messy
by going step by step, I found it difficult to understand the whole "picture". The material is not well orginizied. and I am still missing the line that connects all the dots. Much more then in the PPL, some of the explanations were too shallow, and were ment to give the right answers to the right question in the right FAA test, and not to explain what's behind the answer. That's not the reason I choose king school. I hope it will still be good enough for the test.

I was a little uneasy  going in for my IFR knowledge test, but was able to pass with an 80%.  I would love to have had a higher score, but truth be told I had not been able to take any IFR training flights due to a physical injury and I feel that put me at a disadvantage.  The information was well presented, but having not seen how it applied in the cockpit made it a little more difficult to mentally process the information in a way as to truly understand the material.  If there is anything I would recommend, it would be to take a few training flights before taking the test.  I feel that my score would have been much higher if I had.

Beyond the three required practice exams I did one random exam and one pass through all questions ever answered incorrectly; actual exam was a non-issue!

Very Thorough and detailed.  Lots of practice questions and great ability to go back an re-work questions and look at videos again. Just noticed  based upon a warning and being kicked off from one of the sources that only one source can be logged in at once.  I recommend two being allowed if on the same server IP address, as I had one to access the legend (which I didn’t want to print) and the other for test questions.  Ultimately I downloaded the legend into my computer while I used the iPad for questions, but it would be nice to not have to do that if not required.  Just a suggestion, but I understand if you are trying to protect your IP from multiple users using it. In the end it worked out for me, I just had to save the PDF of the legend to be able to use it while answering questions.

The best way to learn!
I am a private pilot who decided to go after my instrument rating.  When I first started the ground work I spent two weeks reading books on my own and self testing with various apps.  I became frustrated with my progress and my inability to retain much of what I was reading.  I saw an add for King Schools and decided to give it a try. It was the best decision I could have made.  Not only did I make rapid progress, but I retained almost all of the information straight away.  I highly recommend to anyone who is furthering their aviation knowledge.

Great as always
Another successful course with the kings. This is my fourth course with them now. I have used John and Martha for other courses that are non-rating as well and their never come up short. As an Air Traffic Controller, I will continue to use and recommend King Courses and look forward to my Commercial and CFI courses with the Kings. Thank you John and Martha for your continued commitment to excellence in this industry.

Thank you so so so much!!!
I read on an online forum that the King Schools was the best preparation for the Instrument Rating Airplane, and so I purchased the course and completed it.  The best thing about the course was that I didn't just learn the answers, I actually learned the reasons, the facts, the theory etc for the instrument rating. Test day was today and I received a 98% on my IRA exam...absolutely thrilled with that result!!! Thank you, John and Martha!

All in all not a bad option.  I stretched their prep over about a year and wish I wouldn’t have.  Would be much better to watch the videos over a month or two, cram fro the test, and take it.  I’m neither happy with nor dissatisfied with the course but can’t find anything particularly negative that King specifically did to disappoint me.

Success!
I was able to pass my IFR test with confidence. When I started through the lessons I felt that this might be very daunting, and I felt that for quite a bit of the videos.  As they went along, I started gaining an understanding of the relationship between each of the lessons and how they all fell together.  By the end I understood each principle and why they were important.  Thanks to the Kings for the format and how it works well with my learning style.Paul

Great course/Updates needed
The course is great and gave me a level of understanding far beyond what I would have if I had merely memorized the questions.  However, the questions on the FAA exam were quite different than the ones given on the King practice tests.  That definitely increased my “pucker factor” when I began anwering the questions on the FAA knowledge test.  Luckily, the course gave me enough general IFR knowledge to work my way through the most of the questions and finish with a passing score.  However, I don’t believe I will exclusively rely on the King courses going forward to ensure that I pass FAA exams.

With help from the King IFR course I was able to pass the written test the first time. From someone who has taken the written, let me assure you that it is no walk in the park. The FAA has made this test really difficult and hard to pass, but if you will study like John and Martha recommend , you will pass too.

Works every time!
I have used King Courses for both my private pilot and instrument courses. I have always felt extremely well-prepared for the written exams and have provided an outstanding foundation for understanding the concepts necessary to pass the practical exams.My only criticism is that in the explanations for the questions following the individual modules and the practice exams, detail is lacking as to why the incorrect answers are wrong, often stating essentially that the answers are wrong because they’re not the right answer. However, the proper video module is available with each of the questions to review the material again without having to search for it.Overall, I have been extremely satisfied!

The IFR Rating Ground School and Test Prep helped prepare me for the knowledge test.  However, you are going to have to really study.  You can't just try to memorize the questions and the answers from the test prep and then take the test.  The FAA test questions are no longer identical to what you learn in the class, so they really test whether or not you actually understand the material.

I used the King program for my IFR written and couldn’t be happier.

I had purchased a different ground school product and the progress was slow and painful and included items that weren't even part of the test material anymore. With the King course being updated frequently and easy to consume in small pieces, I was able to fly through the whole thing quickly and took the exam nearly a month faster than I expected, and got a score over 90 to boot!

80% on IRA and 86% on FII
Using this and Gleim...I just passed the IRA with an 80% and right after took the FII and got an 86%. There were about 12 questions that I never saw from either studying source on the IRA. Overall, I started studying the Gleim book and watching the King videos exactly a week ago and passed two tests 7 days later. Felt like I could have done better on the IRA and most of the questions I got wrong were not in the King videos nor the Gleim book.

Out of date; covers material
The King Schools course covers the material and has numerous practice exams necessary to study for and pass the instrument written test.   I was frustrated by the blurry and antiquated images and user interface that was not mobile friendly, antiquated in design and functionality, and often very frustrating.  The course is effective at providing all the FAA questions and getting an endorsement.

Tough and challenging
I have taken the instrument ground school at my VA accredited college.  They use a curriculum based on the JEPPESSEN text books.  I found the college course confusing, having outdated material, and lacking any explanation.  YOUR course broke everything down, explained it thoroughly, and was much more informative.  The only thing better would be to sit in the same room with John and Marthe for instruction.I give the course high marks and praise.  I'd recommend this course to anyone.  MONEY WELL SPENT!

Oldie but Goodie
The videos in this series are informative, but dated. The information is good, but the old videos that were recorded when John and Martha King were younger are looking very out of date. The online graphics are unreadable on the test questions. The new HD video segments are much better. It is nice to see what John and Martha look like now too, rather than 30 years ago. They have aged well. Even the FAA has updated the graphics in their test supplement to include color and sharp clear printing. The video series needs to reflect that overall improvement that is a result of modern technology and printing.

Made it much easier!
I used another service for my Private Pilot.  The King program was far superior in both education and in their App program and watching the videos.  I watched the videos, made flash cards and took the practice exams.  I passed the written with a score of 88% first try without having to cram.  Their instruction and ability to explain wrong answers by taking you back to the correct video made the exam easier.  Their questions are very similar to format of the exam.  I liked it so much I have decided to continue on and use their check ride videos as well.  I will continue to watch both series while I learn to fly IFR and thereafter.  I would highly recommend this course over all others.

Difficult subject made easy!!!
John & Martha are simply awesome!  They made the very difficult concepts and materials in the Instrument rating so easy to understand!  Their explanations are clear, concise and presented in a way that anyone can grasp the concepts and really learn the material easily.  I had to do some ground school with my instructor and he often made things so darn complicated that I struggled to remember the information.  The Kings' methods are just fabulous and I love the various tips, tricks & memory items they give you along the way to help you remember things that can easily get confusing.  i.e. "high to low, look out below", VOR orientation diagram, etc.  I also very much appreciate the value of this course.  I don't remember how long this course is but best guess at least 30+ hours of material, likely more.  You'd pay a fortune to your CFII for ground school to cover the same material and very likely not get even remotely the same understanding and grasp of the material.I passed on my first try with a very respectable score.  Check ride course is next.  I've already watched nearly the first hour and it is extremely helpful!Thanks guys!!!!

King Schools is the only way to train for your ratings. I received a great learning foundation for my Instrument Rating. The FAA just revamped the IRA test questions in the middle of my course which made me a little nervous. After completing the IRA test today, I came to realize that King Schools prepared an outstanding foundation for me, so that I was able to answer any new question the FAA would throw at me with ease.

The BEST Self-Study course!!
I decided to try the Instrument Written course after I saw several previews of Martha and John King's series on YouTube and I was very happy with what I purchased! I think it's absolutely necessary to understand the basis of the knowledge exam's questions, especially for the written. I'm by no means a student that can absorb knowledge efficiently just by reading it, so getting the graphic explanation was a must. I did the Sporty's course for the Private Pilot several years ago, however it could get very dry for me. I think that the Kings have a natural talent at presenting these courses and it clicks much better for me. The question database is decent with the King's, but I highly recommend a secondary course like the Gleim or Sheppard Air (Sheppard Air has by far the most up to date database, but Gleim has better software). The reason I say this is because the FAA will often reword questions and add new, more confusing questions to their database in order to fool even the most experienced pilots. Although King Schools has an adequate database, it may not be enough to get a 90 depending on what the PSI/CATS gods randomly generate for you. However, I don't believe using just the Gleim or just Sheppard Air would be enough to pass unless you're an extreme memorizer. To each their own, and I definitely believe in the King system!!

I highly recommend this course. I used it as a supplement to my instructor and hearing the information from a different angle made everything come together for me in a very short period of time. I feel like anyone could benefit from this no matter how much or how little that you know before starting. I learned a few tricks to better understand the material and how to understand the tricky questions that the FAA throws in there.

Did as promised, nothing more.
The Kings said I would pass the test, and I did...easily.  The course did an excellent job preparing me for the test.  The videos and presentation was a bit dated, but so is the FAA.  It moved along quickly, with lots of stops and starts to keep me from zoning out or getting bored.However, after starting the flight training I realized how lacking the course was when it came to real world application.  It wasn't coherent....just a collection of facts and info that you regurgitated on the test.  However in the plane you are supposed to put all that together and John and Martha don't tell you how.  I ended up buying an ASA book which helped put everything in context.If I had to do it all over again I would have bought the book first, and then used the King course.  But yeah, still would have bought the course.  I got my money's worth.

I took the instrument course To go to the CFII test. While I passed, I was disappointed in the test taking module accompanying the course.

FAA Questions Not Similiar
I think King instruction is great.  However, the instrument course is way to tailored to specific (old) FAA test questions.  I took the test today and only 30-40% of the question structure was similar.  What is great - is the logic behind the instruction.  My advise would be to re-do the videos with no actual FAA test question structure (tons of reference to this through).  Several questions on the exam that were not addressed in the King instruction.   I will use King for further training without a doubt - just would like to see the instruction pace with the changes FAA is introducing.  Still - Martha and John are best at explaining all aviation concepts.

I took my first IRA test in 1999 but was unable to complete the air work. Well its time again. Not many IFR ground schools offered any more so I signed up for the King IFR ground on-line course. I passed again. . . . The course is updated to cover the new topics. I liked the ability to study at my own pace.

Videos are old school and seems out of date but the FAA is not. Went through all the videos and answered all the questions and 95% of the questions from the videos showed up on the written test.

Good experience
The only problem I had was, because I bought the online version only, I had no paper materials to refer to, and the images online were not very clear on my desktop computer.  Nevertheless, I got a strong pass 87% on my test by slogging through the videos and doing the practice tests as recommended.

Excellent course.
This course was very informative. the website was very easy to follow. I liked the fact that if u missed a question, you could get an explanation of why you missed it.

Good material - passed!
Passed the test first attempt - that's the most important metric!  The King material seemed a bit "dated" (shocking, but the FAA material appears to have been modernized and the King material is a bit behind).  All in all the King prep was sufficient - I entered confidently and passed.

That was unexpected
I originally took this course in 2008. Never took the actual exam. That was cd/dvd oriented. This course someone needs to go through. It kept blowing me back to a login screen. Some of the courses skipped around. For example if you took say weather, first entry, when you completed that section there was a new first one, the second one was checked as completed. I thought it was just me, then another section did the same thing. BTW, the next course - the checkride course was just user hostile. It kept thinking I wasn't me and demanded my password, other security questions even though I had just used the previous section moments before. At one point I called up because I had so much trouble.  I'm using Windows 10, so it's MS Edge browser and Firefox. Firefox seemed to work better.I'd offer to go through it again and help, however I'm afraid you take me up on the offer. The course requires a lot of cognitive attention, as it should.  The material isn't easy.Someone should get a pat on the back for breaking the segments up. They're long enough and the tests quick enough that you tend to retain it.  I think that part is where it should be. Any longer and I bet I'd tune it out.

COULD NOT HAVE PASSED WITHOUT
COURSE WAS VERY WELL LAID OUT. ALL TOPICS WERE COVERED TO THE POINT WHERE I UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS BEING TAUGHT. THIS IS MUCH BETTER THAN JUST MEMORIZING THE ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS….THIS IS REAL KNOWLEDGE THAT CAN BE USSED TO STAY LEGAL, BUT MOST OF ALL, TO STAY SAFE!!!!

Course should have been better
If you are hoping for a very insightful and easy to understand online course, this is not it. Unless you have a pretty good working knowledge of IFR flight this course does a poor job of explaining and helping a student comprehend instrument flight. For all the good reviews I was expecting a much better course presentation.

Solid prep for the test!
The King Course was the only test prep tool I used for the written exam.  Passed on first try with score of 88.  I had previously read the FAA materials over a two month period but found I wasn't retaining the information.  The King Course solved that problem.  I esp liked the ability to take the course on my iPad which made it much more convenient to squeeze in lessons during the day.

Hitting home
I have tried other home study courses, and I came back to King Schools.  Nobody prepares you to take the FAA exams like King Schools. Its as close as you can get to a guarantee of a passing grade. The material is presented in a way that you can understand and absorb.

Solid and entertainingly hoaky
All the material is there and is presented clearly and concisely by, apparently, your grandparents as they were in the 80s. If that doesn't bother you, it adds just enough charm to keep the whole thing from seeming too routine. On the other hand, while I'm sure it's a major challenge keeping abreast of all the developments in IFR technology, some of the material really does feel borderline obsolete. But then, the FAA is using charts on the test that you simply don't find in circulation anymore, so I guess they're just teaching to the test.

Good Solid Score!
I passed the test for my instrument rating with a good solid score!  John and Martha did an excellent job breaking the material down into bite-sized modules.  The practice exams helped me identify areas needing extra study.  When I tested, I went with confidence.

90 YESTERDAY ON MY FIRST TRY
The King IFR course is indispensible - not only for a good grade on the test but for UNDERSTANDING the material.  Well thought out, clearly organized and explained - i did score a 90 on my test first time around. THE single most valuable part of this course is the SIGNOFF you get that enables you to actually TAKE your written test, once you've completed the course.  AUTOMATICALLY.  This alone makes it worth the cost of the course. Can't recommend it any more highly.

great test prep course
As long as you are methodical and put in the time to listen to the lectures and do the questions there is no way you will fail the test. The videos may seem a bit "old school" at times but frankly the FAA test is as old school as it gets. A great many questions are irrelevant in the times of glass cockpits in GA aircraft but that's the way it is. This is the only theory I had and it was more than sufficient. Great job by the Kings!

Good way to get introduced.
I wish there was an easy way to determine which areas were my weakest overall.  The analysis options seem to be limited.  May future versions could include a running analysis of knowledge area codes the student is missing on quizzes and practice test.  Or, maybe I just wasn't doing it right.

Outstanding Preparation
Team King,Your product is outstanding and did a great job preparing me for the Instrument Knowledge Test.  Your test environment was actually more difficult than what I encountered at the FAA location in terms of questions asked and problems presented.  Excellent job.I also wanted to let you know I, for one, enjoyed your humor.  I know the feedback on the goofy jokes is mixed, but I enjoyed them and found myself chuckling several times.  Thanks for everything.  You got me a score in the 90's!  Joe Potter

100% confidence taking my test
I didn't have the slightest doubt I would pass my IFR written test, the only question I had was how close to perfect could I be (98% so I guess not too far off).  I found the videos easy to follow.  The questions following each video were a very close representation, if not exact, to the questions on the test.  I feel I have gained a true command of the knowledge needed to be a safe and proficient instrument pilot.  I was completely prepared for the test and was glad I choose the King Schools courses.
