The Orlando Sentinel newspaper recognized Epic Flight Academy as a Top Workplace on Friday, September 16th at an awards ceremony in Orlando, Florida. Epic was recognized in the “Small Employer Group.”
Phyllis Cunniffe, Director of Human Resources, accepted the award on behalf of Epic, saying, “We are especially proud of this, because it really comes from our employees. They shared their thoughts on working at Epic with the Sentinel, so that means a great deal to us.”
Founder and CEO Danny Perna added, “When we started in 1999, we never imagined the company would grow to multiple locations and more than 100 employees, but we’ve always been fortunate to hire great people. For our staff to weigh in on what it means to work at Epic meant so much. We value their feedback and hope to continue making Epic a great place to work.”
Epic Flight Academy was founded in 1999. Epic’s main campus in New Smyrna Beach includes an FAA Part 141 flight school and FAA Part 147 aircraft mechanic school. Epic has a satellite location in Ocala. Epic currently employs 152 people.
