Epic Flight Academy opened its 32,000-square-foot, $8 million aircraft mechanic school on the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport’s (CVG) campus. Staff, students, and guests celebrated the opening of the new FAA Part 147-certified school with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Students who complete the program will have the opportunity to become FAA-certified airframe and powerplant (A&P) aviation mechanics, and will be able to seek direct employment in the aviation industry. The new school and training areas offer students the opportunity to get hands-on experience working on aircraft engines and to learn how to repair plane and helicopter equipment, in addition to completing other coursework.

“Workforce development is the most important and proactive step we can take for the future of Kentucky’s economy,” said Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear. “This new training facility from Epic Flight Academy will train workers at CVG, helping prepare thousands of Kentuckians to make an impact in their communities, while also supporting their families through skilled, well-paying jobs.”

Epic Flight Academy is offering year-round open enrollment and has rolling start dates for classes.

“This collaboration has been incredibly rewarding, and we’re thrilled to welcome our inaugural class of approximately 20 students,” said Danny Perna, chief executive officer and founder, Epic Flight Academy.
