Orlando, FL, October 31, 2012—Today, at NBAA’s Annual Meeting & Convention, John and Martha King announced that King Schools is preparing to release its 24th course targeting the needs of turbine powered, professional and owner-flown operators. The King pro-series of courses includes everything from initial transition to jets and high-altitude flying, to certificate courses for operations such as RVSM, RNP, MNPS, P-RNAV, International Operations and Part 135 initial and recurrent pilot training.
International operations can be complicated and tricky. They are full of pitfalls and traps, and require specific additional knowledge to avoid them. “With our new International Operations Overview course, you’ll learn practical how-to information that will prepare you for the differences,” commented John King. “You’ll know what you don’t know, so you won’t be surprised by regulatory requirements, and will know how to get fully prepared for your international flight,” added Martha King.
“You have heard the quote, ‘If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter’,” commented John. “Well, it does take time and lots of work to make complex material appear simple,” continued John. “King Schools puts in that work and you will love the result. The KING courses are clear, simple and easy to understand,” observed Martha.

- ICAO Rules and regulations
