    Has anyone from the UK gone to Epic and become a commercial pilot?

    If so, I’d love to ask a few questions about how it went!


    Hello LKTaylor94,

    Yes. Please check here,

    To become a trained airline pilot at Epic Flight Academy in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA you must:
    1) Be at least 17 years of age
    2) Speak English proficiently
    3) International students must have a valid passport (Passport information: or two other forms of identification if you are from the USA
    4) Completed high school or secondary education (Grades don’t matter, only that you completed school.)

    Thank you for using our forum!


    I noticed your query about UK pilots training at Epic Flight Academy and becoming commercial pilots. While I’m not from the UK myself, I can share some general insights that might be helpful:

    International Training Experience: Epic Flight Academy, with its comprehensive training programs and diverse student body, offers a unique opportunity for international students, including those from the UK. The experience gained here can be quite valuable, especially given the exposure to different flight conditions and regulations.

    Networking: Connecting with current or former students through Epic’s alumni network or social media groups can provide firsthand insights. These platforms are great for asking specific questions about their experiences, challenges, and how they managed the transition from UK to US aviation standards.

    FAA vs EASA Regulations: One crucial aspect for UK pilots training in the US is understanding the differences between FAA and EASA regulations. This knowledge is vital if you plan to work in Europe post-training.

    Career Opportunities: Exploring how training at Epic can align with your career goals is essential. Whether you aim to fly commercially in the UK, the US, or elsewhere, understanding how Epic’s training is perceived by employers in your target region is crucial.
