What a thrill! This is not grandpa's old Piper. Climb out at 3,000 feet a minute, fully loaded. Advanced composite design along with the 1,200 hp PT-6 enables this pressurized six-seater to easily out-perform anything in its class. The remarkable strength of carbon fiber technology allows for fewer joints, seams and rivets. The result is an airframe which moves through the air with a minimum of disturbance, allowing the Epic LT to travel at 330 KTAS— faster than any other company’s single-engine turboprop.
All you can wish for: The LT’s flight deck is everything a pilot could imagine. Large format EFIS panels offer state-of-the-art situational awareness, so pilots can easily manage their cockpit with critical flight information, including XM Wx satellite weather information, traffic awareness (TCAS), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) and navigation flight plans. Ergonomically-designed seats provide generous leg and shoulder room delivering unrivaled crew comfort. Both inside and out, the Epic LT is a pilot’s dream.
Naturally, the LT is an exciting aircraft for passengers, too. The club seating arrangement with reclining overstuffed leather seats creates a comfortable and plush flight for all passengers. Interior trim elements, custom cabinetry and multimedia options deliver the essence of complete luxury. Nothing is left out. And nothing is left behind. Fore and aft storage compartments offer an abundance of room for baggage.
According to company marketing information, the Epic LT redefines the rules by combining turbine power, composite technology, advanced avionics and unforgettable luxury. "You and your passengers will cruise faster, higher and further in total comfort. This is a new era in aviation. This is the Epic LT", their advertising says.
