We have proven technology that is going to shake up the aviation industry and the financial resources to deliver it to the marketplace.”

The soon-to-be-certified aircraft, known as the Epic E1000, will set a new standard in the industry as the fastest, highest performing, most affordable, six-place single-engine turboprop in the world.
