There are two components you need study to prepare for your exams.
- King Schools Private Pilot Ground School and Test Prep Course
- Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations titled "Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems"
Using your King Schools Private Pilot Ground School and Test Prep Course, you only need to study the subject areas that are listed below.
First, let's explain the terminology we use to identify and find lessons in the course. We use three terms; Labs, Lesson Groups and Lessons. The Labs are the main chapters in the course. The Lesson Groups are groups of lessons found inside the Lab. The Lessons are the individual video and review questions on a specific topic nested inside the Lesson Group.
The Labs you need to study are outlined in green.
Inside each Lab, there are Lesson Groups.
After you select the Lesson Group, you will select the individual Lesson to study.
Below is the list of subjects you need to study broken out by Lab, Lesson Group and Lesson.
While your course works on an iPhone, iPad, Mac , PC or any device with an Internet connection, you can download the referenced Labs while connected to the Internet and study them while offline. Just click on Companion App on the main menu of your course. Start the app and login to your iLearn account. All your course progress will be synced when you reconnect to the Internet.
