Epic Comes Home

After flirting with Canadian and Russian certification for its composite aircraft, Epic Aviation says it will certify its products in the U.S. CEO Rick Schrameck told a news conference at AOPA Expo on Thursday that it will certify its first aircraft, the turboprop Escape, in Bend, Oregon under the auspices of the Seattle FAA office. He said that problems with the foreign certifications notwithstanding (and aircraft seized in the Georgian conflict and high building costs in Canada), the current economic problems also helped make the decision to certify in the U.S. He said that certification inspectors now have time to do the Escape certification as activity in the market declines. Schrameck said the market decided his choice to certify a turboprop, rather than one of the jets his company is also developing.
