The next generation E1000 GX is equipped with the Garmin GFCTM 700 Digital Flight Control System and Hartzell 5-blade composite propeller.
“Lone Mountain Aviation is proud to become a partner in support of this new-age aircraft. We are confident Epic Aircraft owners will be impressed by our world-class customer service experience that even the most discriminating owner/operators will appreciate,” commented Kenny Scherado, president and founder of Lone Mountain Aviation.
Lone Mountain will be authorized to provide inspection, maintenance, and repair services for the Epic E1000, the Epic E1000 GX, as well as the legacy experimental Epic LT.
