1. Is this kit right for me?
These courses are designed to prepare you to take and pass the FAA sport pilot Knowledge Test & take and pass the FAA sport pilot Practical Test (a.k.a. Sport 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 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?
DVD for Windows media requires a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.
3.Are the courses current?
KING courses are up-to date with the latest information and subjects areas 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 the FAA tests.
Warning: You can’t just memorize test questions and expect to pass your FAA Sport 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.
DVD for Windows Media - Your disc-based course is always up-to-date when it is shipped from KING. You can subscribe to our update subscription service at an additional charge and we will send you "hotsheets" whenever questions change.
4.Is there a particular order to follow? Are some lessons easier than others?
Of course, 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.
5.How much time will it take to complete the course?
The Sport Pilot Ground School & Test Prep Course contains approximately 7.5 hours of video clips.
The Sport Pilot Practical Test Course contains approximately 3.5 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.
