FAA approves Epic E1000 GX

Silently Epic Aircraft has developed un improved version of its E1000 single turboprop, the E1000 GX.

When the company announced this version in July 2021, just ahead of the EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh, the E1000 GX had already gained FAA approval, so delivered can start right away. The E1000 GX features a new Garmin GFC 700 automated flight control system and Hartzell five-blade composite propeller. The latter is immediately the main external difference compared to the original LT and E1000.
