Jan. 20, 2017

New Smyrna Beach, FL – Danny Perna, Epic Flight Academy CEO and Josh Rawlins, VP of Operations announced the arrival of a new 2017 G-1000 model Piper Seminole and the addition of N166CS, a Cessna 172 Skyhawk with synthetic vision capabilities.

In addition to the new aircraft in the fleet, Epic has developed a new learning facility equipped with ergonomic seating arrangements for group learning. Perna and Rawlins intend to further expand the fleet growth over the course of the year in order to accommodate the growing number of student pilots.

“With our growing enrollment we are planning to purchase additional aircraft and continue expanding our classroom space,” said Perna. “Our infrastructure includes the use of computer-based instruction. Last year we began using Schoology, and our students have responded favorably to this use of technology.”

The flight school has been in operation since 1999, training airline pilots from dozens of countries as well as the U.S.
