Epic’s campus is strategically located in sunny New Smyrna Beach, Florida where flight training is available year-round. In fact, more than 50% of the world’s flight training takes place in Florida because of the weather which is ideal for flight training year-round. Florida, in particular Central Florida, has become the number one place in the world for international flight training because of the weather and the amount of resources and talent available including aircraft and certified flight instructors. Companies like SpaceX operate in central Florida for these same reasons.
I was wondering why so many of my friends were choosing Central Florida but now it makes sense, also my uncle who flies for Jet, completed his training in Florida in the 1990s and recommend the same. what about the airport where the campus is located are there alot of other flight schools or aircraft that would cause delays?
Epic is the only flight school located at our airport. As the only flight academy here at the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport (KEVB), students have the comfort of a low traffic, towered airport, and Air Traffic Controllers experienced with student pilots, as they ease into their flight training. With many surrounding public airports that don’t charge airport taxes or landing fees, aspiring pilots are able to soar through their training in the perfect pilot training environment.
