Epic Flight Academy opens satellite pilot training center in Ocala
Epic Flight Academy recently celebrated the grand opening of its Satellite Pilot Training Center at Ocala International Airport.
On Saturday, April 23, Epic Flight Academy was officially welcomed to the airport with a ceremony and Chief Flight Instructor Vic Johnson had the honor of cutting the ribbon.
“It was a great day for Epic. Ocala International Airport is the perfect site to establish our satellite flight school. We have already enrolled flight students who have started their training,” Johnson said.
Epic staff were on hand to greet visitors, and they facilitated discovery flights and answered questions about the new flight school location. Visitors were able to explore the facility which includes several Epic aircraft and a flight simulator.
Jon Luck, Career Development Coordinator at Epic, was thrilled with the grand opening. “We were thrilled to have such turnout and look forward to hosting more events here in the future. Ocala has been very welcoming.
Epic Flight Academy is an FAA-certified Part 141 flight school that was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. According to Epic, the flight school also offers “Epic Anywhere,” a program in which instructors bring the aircraft directly to students flying in any of the 48 contiguous states.
