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 23 April. 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.
“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 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,” a program where instructors bring the aircraft directly to flight students in any of the 48 contiguous states.
