Are there female flight students at Epic?

FAQ » , » Are there female flight students at Epic?

Yes, of course there are female pilots at Epic! We have been empowering women in aviation since 1999. Approximately 10-15% of our student pilots are women, and that number is increasing as more airlines are hiring female pilots. Women in aviation used to be less common, but we expect to see many more women become commercial pilots. Many of Epic’s female flight students are now flying for the airlines. Some have even been the first at their airlines, such as Elissa Figaro, who became the first female pilot and first female Captain at Caicos Express Airlines. We are extremely proud of the women who train at Epic! We have even hired many to work here as flight instructors, like CFII Jody Brandel.
