Student Life

Epic student life is high energy and positive! We welcome and encourage spiring pilots to join the Epic family to pursue your professional pilot dreams. Epic is honored to have trained thousands of successful aviators of different genders, races, religions, and cultural backgrounds since we began flight training in 1999. Our goal is to ensure that all of our students feel appreciated and respected. We are proud to have trained students from 80+ countries.

Monthly Events

Each month we host Student & Staff Appreciation events. Celebrating friendship over food is something everyone looks forward to, and we often schedule games and other fun activities. At Epic, you’ll make friendships that will last a lifetime.

Supplementary English Proficiency Courses

At times, we find that our non-native English speakers have a difficult time understanding English. The initial ground school course includes technical language, and learning new concepts in a foreign language can be very challenging. Support is available to assist these students with improving their English. English tutoring can be taken in addition to Ground School in order to continue training progress. Your success is our success, and we are here to help!

Student Housing Accommodations & Transportation

Relocating to another state or country for flight training can be a stressful process for students and a major concern for parents. This is why we have created easy, affordable solutions for our students. Epic Flight Academy offers safe, well-maintained, apartment-style housing for students. In addition, we offer consistent shuttle transportation to and from the flight academy and shopping centers by trained Epic employees. We reserve our rental facilities for our students only, and there is also nearby housing.

Resources at Epic

Students can access information and various necessary forms here. You will also have a Schoology account during your time at Epic. There is a store on site where students can purchase aviation supplies and snacks. If you need something, please ask!

Add Funds to Student Account

If you would like to add funds to an existing student’s account, you may do so at Student Account Payments.

Local Area Entertainment & Weekend Activities

Having a safe, clean environment promotes learning and growth, which is why we are strategically located on Florida’s east coast at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport. We expect our students to make their pilot training a top priority, but we also encourage them to make lasting connections with their classmates and mentors and enjoy all that the Central Florida area has to offer.

Located a mile from the beach, Epic students are able to take off and get a bird’s-eye view of the Atlantic coastline in minutes. We also encourage you to visit the beach for some rest and relaxation. Historic Flagler Avenue in New Smyrna Beach is a great place for food and fun by the beach. You will find all kinds of things to do in New Smyrna Beach and surrounding areas like Daytona Beach and Orlando while you attend flight school.

Learn how to become an airline pilot while enjoying sunny Florida and a wide variety of beach activities. Take a one-hour drive south to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. There you’ll see a launch simulator, museum, and hands-on exploratory center. You’ll also be able to see actual rocket launches. You might also enjoy theme parks like Disney World, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, and more.

Although you’ll spend most of your time studying and flight training, you will have plenty of time to have a little fun while you’re here!
