Epic Aircraft has delivered the first two customer copies of its E1000 all-composite turboprop single. The deliveries follow FAA type certification of the airplane last November. Equipped with Garmin G1000 NXi avionics and a 1,200-hp Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67A engine, the six-seat airplane has a cruise speed of 333 ktas and can climb at 4,000 feet per minute. Its range is 1,560 nm, which Epic said will allow it to fly coast-to-coast with one fuel stop.
