Epic Alumni Spotlight
We love hearing from our graduates! Sending a big shoutout to Ryan Krenek who said, “Epic trained me in the little details of my instrument rating and helped me fully understand the ins and outs of instrument flying.” Ryan was a great student, and he is now a First Officer flying for Aero National. Well done, Ryan!
Congratulations to these Epic Flight Academy students who passed check rides on their first attempt in October! We salute you!
