3 New Aircraft Arriving

3 New Cessna Aircraft Arriving

We are excited to announce that Epic will be taking delivery of 3 new Cessna 172 Skyhawks on February 16th. As our fleet continues to grow we are able to increase availability for our flight students to fly around the clock. The Cessna 172 with G1000 cockpits are the #1 flight training aircraft for many reasons. We buy ours brand new directly from the Cessna factory. Safety first!

Alumni News

Epic Alumni Aytac Canik and Yildiray Canik

In 2014, Epic welcomed brothers Aytac Canik (left) and Yildiray Canik (right) from Turkey. We recently heard from the pair who both fly the Airbus A320/321. Aytac flies for Onur Air, and Yildiray flies for Pegasus Airlines. Aytak had this to say about training at Epic:

“Our jobs are an international business. Therefore, we constantly fly to foreign countries and have to stay for some time. Since Epic has students from various countries, it has allowed us to make friends in almost every country and create lasting memories. It has also allowed us to see the beauty in different cultures.”

Well said, Aytac! Are you an Epic graduate? Send us your career updates and tag us on social media! We are proud of your accomplishments!
