Epic in Lakeland

Epic staff had a great time last month in Lakeland, Florida at the Sun ‘n Fun Holiday Fly-In Festival. We met up with alumni, made new friends, and shared Epic’s mission.

Airport News

The City of New Smyrna Beach recently completed a $1.4 million project that features a 15-unit T-hangar on the south end of the airport. Two units can house aircraft with a 47′ wingspan, and the others are for aircraft with wingspan no wider than 40′.

Aircraft Mechanic Program

If you think school should be more hands-on, you’ll love Epic’s Aircraft Mechanic Program! Hitting the books means grabbing your toolbox and getting to work.

Our next class begins on February 7th. Will you be there?
