Aero-TV: Focus On The Future -- Epic Announces New Aircraft

Despite The Hype, There's No Denying That They Keep Offering New Airframes

Epic Aircraft is one of those companies that is, at times, awfully hard to figure. Despite a lot of hype, more than a few disappointments and some claims that got them in hot water, Epic remains a player (albeit controversial) on the high-performance aircraft scene and (now) in the LSA scene.

Most noted for a series of experimental turbo-props and jets, some of which are supposed to be headed for certification, Epic is now addressing some perceived needs in general and sport aviation. The foundation of their business is built around "Owner-Assist" programs that allowed a number of well-healed builders to craft a very sophisticated airframe under the watchful eye of Epic staffers. While the FAA had some early heartburn over this and it was Epic's pushing of the Amateur-built definition that is credited for FAA's unwelcome and forthcoming recrafting of the 51% Rule, Epic's Rick Schrameck insists that the turbulence is behind them and that the future of such efforts is secure.

Epic, though, insists that their future lies in the realm of Turbo-Prop and Jet certification and despite some lofty announcements about serious financial backing that has failed to materialize over the past two years, they remain committed to that vision, as well.
