Epic Aircraft today announced that it has selected Fort Lauderdale-based Premier Aircraft Service as its Authorized Service Center for the southeast U.S. region.
“Premiere’s reputation for service excellence and their dedication to customer support is widely known throughout the region,” commented Epic CEO, Doug King. “We are confident they will provide our customers with top-notch care and expert aircraft maintenance services.”
Epic Aircraft received FAA Type Certification for its award winning E1000 model in November 2019. Powered by the Pratt & Whitney 1200-horsepower PT6A-67A engine, the all-carbon fiber single-engine turboprop cruises at 333 knots, climbs at 4,000 feet per minute, operates up to 34,000 feet, and offers a full fuel payload of 1,100 pounds. The next generation E1000 GX is equipped with the Garmin GFC (TM) 700 Digital Flight Control System and Hartzell 5-blade composite propeller.
Premier Aircraft Service, a division of Premier Aircraft Sales, is an FAA Certified Part 145 Repair Station, with extensive experience servicing the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 engines, supporting Garmin avionics products, and performing composite repairs. Premier will be authorized to provide inspection, maintenance, and repair services from their Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE)-based location for the Epic E1000, the Epic E1000 GX, as well as the legacy experimental Epic LT.
“Epic Aircraft offers an exceptional next-generation, high-performance turboprop and we are extremely proud to be selected as their factory authorized service center in the southeast region,” stated Travis Peffer, CEO, Premier Aircraft Sales. “Earning this authorization is a true testimony to the exceptionally quality of work our talented team has provided our customers for nearly 20 years.”
Epic is finalizing agreements with additional service center partners to establish a nationwide service network, providing coverage spanning all U.S. time zones and strategic geographies.
