“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 training,” said Johnson.

Epic’s staff was on hand to welcome visitors, and they arranged discovery flights and answered questions about the new flight school location. Visitors were able to check out the facility, which includes several Epic aircraft and a flight simulator.

Jon Luck, Epic’s Career Development Coordinator, was pleased with the grand opening. “We were excited to have such strong attendance and look forward to hosting other 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. Its home base is in New Smyrna Beach. According to Epic, the flight school also offers “Epic Anywhere,” a program where instructors bring the aircraft directly to flight students in any of the 48 contiguous states.
