On 7 November 2019 Epic Aircraft received FAA type certification for its all-composite E1000 turboprop single aircraft.
The milestone marks the end of a the seven-year test programme. The E1000 is based on the Epic LT home built aircraft, of which some dozen have been built, before Epic Aircraft decided to stop making kits and strive for a certified version of the aircraft. Deliveries are expected before the end of 2019. We found not discovered any external differences between the LT and E1000 so far.
