"Choosing Epic for My Helicopter Training Was the Best Decision I Could Have Made. I Have Epic to Thank for My Career Success."
Robinson helicopters are consistently the most reliable and popular training helicopters in the world.
With two seats and a maximum take-off weight of 1,370 lbs the R22 is the most popular training helicopter in the world.
With four seats and a maximum take-off weight of between 2,200 - 2,500 lbs (depending on which model), the R44 is the most popular helicopter for training for instrument flight rules (IFR) and is also widely used for training under visual flight rules (VFR) too.
With 5 seats and a maximum take-off weight of 2,700 lbs, this turbine-powered helicopter is the most economical turbine powered civil helicopter used for turbine transition training and, for some future R66 owners, a platform for all of their training.
With 7 seats, the Bell 407 is a single-engine turbine helicopter used for initial turbine and airframe transition training as well as recurrent training.
Industry-Recognized Training Program Excellence
Epic's core curriculum received a complete makeover in 2017, re-designed entirely from the bottom up with the sole focus of how to best cater to efficient student progression and do so safely. Our new approach is specifically designed to ease training choke points and learning plateaus, especially at the private pilot level. We have taken special focus on development of commercial course level students with job-specific elective courses to not only help students decide what industry jobs most interest them, but also to better prepare our students for real-world work. We provide our students with the technology, people and skills to produce safety-minded, confident and competent aviators - and we do so with the highest level of integrity and safety.
