Epic Flight Academy Opens Satellite Pilot Training Center
Florida, US based Epic Flight Academy welcomed members of the Ocala Metro Chamber and Economic Partnership, the Central Florida Business Aviation Association, and the public to its open house and ribbon-cutting on Saturday, April 23rd at its new satellite location in Ocala, Florida.
Epic Flight Academy is an FAA-certified Part 141 flight school in operation since 1999. Its home base is in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The new satellite location in Ocala is part of Epic’s strategic plan to make flight training more accessible. The flight school also offers “Epic Anywhere.” This is a program where instructors bring the aircraft directly to flight students in any of the 48 contiguous states.
Epic staff members were on hand to welcome visitors. They facilitated discovery flights and answered questions about the new flight school location at the Ocala International Airport. Visitors toured the facility, including an inspection of several Epic aircraft and a flight simulator.
Jim Pazda, Director of First Impressions for the Chamber, said, “I was impressed by the enthusiasm and positivity of the Epic team members. They were welcoming and shared helpful information with attendees. We are happy to welcome Epic Flight Academy to Ocala.”
“It was a great day for Epic,” said Chief Flight Instructor Vic Johnson. Vic officially cut the ribbon for the new location. “Ocala International Airport is the perfect site to establish our satellite flight school. We have already enrolled flight students who have started training.”
Epic’s Career Development Coordinator Jon Luck added, “It was great to work with the Ocala Chamber members in planning our event. We were excited to have such strong attendance and look forward to hosting other events here in the future. Ocala has been very welcoming.”
