King Schools

http://www.kingschools.com/?sco=WB&scu=FACEBK01 Born from a Passion for Flying King Schools, Inc. is the world´s leading producer of aviation training videos and computer software. It was first established in 1974, when John and Martha began flying throughout the country to teach ground school courses. A decade later, they began producing video courses in a spare room of their house. Today, King Schools has over 70 employees operating from an 18,000 sq. ft. complex, housing a dedicated video production and duplication facility. In the past 10 years we have delivered more than 2-1/2 million videos with over 4 million hours of video instruction, teaching up to one-half of the instrument students and over one-third of all pilots in the U.S. obtaining training. We are keenly aware of the importance of the work we do. During the time someone is learning to fly, flying is the most important thing in his or her life. We are privileged to play such a significant role in the lives of such committed individuals. We take pride in producing quality work for these special people.

Hello fellow pilots! We have a big announcement that concerns our community. The FAA will be discontinuing the DUATS program on May 16th.

Not to fear, though. Pilots will still be able to access internet-based services including weather and aeronautical information, flight plan filing, and automated services at no charge at the flight service website, and are encouraged to register to use it.

DUAT services were first offered in 1989, and their introduction is credited with helping pilots transition to using automated information services. This decision was reached in an effort to reduce cost, and an increase in other preflight planning platforms by pilots, including commercial vendors.
