Our flight school offers pilot training for students who have never had any flight training at all and those who have had some level of training. We train both domestic (U.S.) students and international students. Regardless of your flight experience, we can take you to your next goal. Whether you are simply looking to earn a Private Pilot License (PPL) for recreational flying, or you are working toward earning your Commercial Pilot License (CPL) for an airline pilot career job, Epic Flight Academy pilot training is designed to fit your individual needs and meet the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) worldwide. We encourage you to do the research so you’ll know how to choose an ATP flight school.
Professional Pilot Training Programs
Students from anywhere in the world can choose to enroll in one of our professional pilot pathway programs. We provide you with an accelerated Part 141 flight training package that includes your Private Pilot License (PPL), Instrument Rating (IFR), and Commercial Pilot License (CPL). These professional pilot programs are intended for students that are able to fly full-time (minimum of 5 days per week, 5 hours per day) with no gaps in training in order to complete quickly and efficiently. Financing options are available.
What types of programs does Epic offer?
Domestic Professional Pilot Program: This program is for U.S. residents who aspire to become professional pilots. Your flight training experience will lead to your PPL, IFR, and CPL ratings while building flight time through flight instruction, which fully prepares you for employment with commercial airlines under United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements. This is your pathway to a career in commercial aviation.
International Professional Pilot Program (non-European Union): This program is for international students (outside of the European Union) who aspire to become professional pilots. Your flight training experience will lead to your PPL, IFR, and CPL ratings while building flight time through instruction, which fully prepares you for employment with commercial airlines under all Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA). You will meet all minimum equivalent licensing requirements to be validated as a commercial pilot in your respective country, with the exception of countries in the European Union.
EASA International Professional Pilot Program (European Union): This program is for international students who aspire to pursue a professional pilot career with any airline operating in the European Union. Your flight training experience will lead to your PPL, IFR, and (Airline Transport Pilot License) ATPL ratings while building flight time through instruction. You will meet all minimum equivalent licensing requirements to be validated as a commercial pilot in the European Union through our European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and FAA.
College Degree Program: This program allows you to complete your professional pilot training at Epic and then transfer your flight training hours for college credit hours at Daytona State College, located just 13 miles from Epic. Domestic students may dual-enroll. International students will need to complete all Epic flight training, return home, change to an F-1 visa status, return to the U.S., and attend classes at DSC. This program is offered to pilots who would like to add a college degree to their credentials. You may transfer 23 credit hours toward your A.S. degree.
