We welcomed 40 new students to Epic, took delivery of two brand new Cessna 172s for our continually growing fleet, and welcomed new partners to our Aircraft Mechanic Program. Aerotek, American Aero Services, Ascent Aviation Services, Baker Aviation, Southern Airways Express, and STS Aviation Group have signed letters of agreement to offer interviews to graduates of Epic’s aircraft mechanic program. We are grateful to our dedicated staff, students, and partners who are devoted to developing careers in aviation.
