New Smyrna Beach, Florida — Epic Flight Academy is proud to announce the sponsorship of two $25,000 scholarships for aircraft mechanic training by AOG Maintenance in Daytona Beach, Florida. AOG MX is sponsoring two Volusia County high school students. Upon completion of the program, which takes 14 to 18 months, both scholarship winners will be offered full-time employment with AOG MX as long as they successfully complete the program and meet AOG’s hiring requirements.

Epic and AOG encourage Volusia County seniors to apply for these scholarships. Eligibility requirements:

  • U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident living in Volusia County, Florida
  • 18 years old by the time of completing the program
  • Must be able to start training in the October 5, 2021 class
  • Provide parent or guardian’s approval if under 18 years of age
  • Have consistent, reliable transportation to attend Epic Flight Academy

Students can complete their applications online. The deadline to apply is September 1st, 2021. The scholarship winners will begin their first class on October 5, 2021.

“AOG has continued to grow as a leader in the aircraft maintenance industry, and we are thrilled about these scholarships,” said Epic CEO Danny Perna. “We opened our aircraft mechanic school last year, and we’ve developed numerous partnerships with businesses who want to hire our graduates. However, this is the first one that is actually sponsoring the full training of two of our students.” Perna added that AOG MX is supporting Volusia County students because of their proximity to both Epic Flight Academy and AOG MX.
