You deserve the best preparation possible for your flying journey. Our goal is that you will both ace your test and acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to become a competent PIC (Pilot In Command). That’s why we agonize over every word and teaching technique in our video lessons. We want to ensure that we deliver the knowledge you need, together with easy ways to remember and apply it.
Of course, you want to show the depth of your knowledge by acing your test, and to do that, there is no better way than to practice with the FAA -style questions that follow each KING video lesson and to utilize the comprehensive question review section of your Knowledge Test Course . You need to practice answering questions similar to what you will see on your test, and get used to the way they are asked—some can be pretty tricky!

There has been a long-running debate at the FAA regarding the need for secrecy of the official test question databases. The current policy is that the question databases are secret. This reflects the FAA’s concern that if test applicants had access to the question database, they may just memorize the questions and answers without acquiring the necessary knowledge to be a safe and competent pilot.
Since we have been providing knowledge prep for so many years, we have saved databases from when the FAA had them publicly available. Most of the FAA test questions never change because information on aerodynamics, weather and many procedures are constant. What does change are things like regulations and flight operations issues, so we review each of those changes by the FAA immediately after they occur and create new, additional questions (and video updates) for you to study. The result is one of the most complete testing databases available anywhere. Each question also has full and thoughtful explanations of the correct—and incorrect—answer choices.
Regardless of the changes in FAA policy regarding the secrecy of test questions, we will continue to keep our focus on ensuring that you receive the knowledge you need in simple, clear and fun ways, to be a great PIC—and to ace your test!
