Great Course
This is a great course for anyone wanting to renew their helicopter CFI, and you can work at your own pace and not be tied down to a certain location or hotel conference room for two days!
Mark C. 01/30/2023 Helicopter Flight Instructor Refresher Course (FIRC)
Verbose and Statistic oriented
Little visual and a ton of reading and videos from HAI which are poor;

Sight constitutes 70% of our learning but that is not effective if 70% of the course is reading a lecture that used those words to be heard in the first place.

Old school blackboard and lecture techniques.
Not engaging, reward oriented or even uses the AIM "How do people learn"  principles.

Completely miss
1. Attention—the ability of the observer to pay attention to others around him or her in order to learn.
2. Retention—the ability to remember an observed behavior to later repeat that behavior.
3. Reproduction—the act of producing a previously observed behavior. This may require additional skills
beyond what was initially observed.
4. Motivation—the reason to reproduce an observed behavior.

Instead they give you pages of what somebody scripted live once and left out the human elements of the course taker.

POOR COURSE is my first impression after reaching 50 years as a CFI.

Better than the other FIRCs
I have used the alphabet organizations firc several times before.  As a fixed and rotor wing instructor I was pleasantly surprised with the King schools offering a helicopter centered renewal course. Having never used a King product before I thought I would give it a try.  I was very pleased to see the lessons Helicopter oriented and quite informative.  I feel I learned much from the lessons and the approach to teaching the information.  If I do not renew based on performance I will be back to King's FIRC in two years.  43 years as a CFI, I highly recommend King products now.

Great Helicopter FIRC
Well laid out and informative course. I would recommend it to any Helicopter CFI looking for a better FIRC.

Well Done King Schools!
From the beginning, I was dreading the course.  By the end, I was so glad I completed everything!  GREAT information for any level of CFI. Very thorough, informative and easy to follow along.  I'm now excited to re-do this course next year to keep me sharp.  Thank you King Schools, well done!

More of John and Martha Please
Great course, but needs more actual video instruction. Over half of the modules are a reading exercise only which was disappointing. John and Martha are fantastic public speakers and that is the reason why I signed up to take this course.

King Schools PVT to ATP!
I started using King products back when I was working on my Private Pilot nearly 10 years ago. Last year I used King Schools Jepp charts review to help prep for my airline interviews and ATP. Now I have completed myfirst FIRC with the Kings. Thanks for he

Good program somewhat outdated
The King Schools application process was extremely easy, possibly the simplest paperwork I've seen in the 23 FIRCs I've done.  A lot of the material was obviously pretty old and the presentation of basic bullet-pointed items to read was somewhat tedious.
