Well it is better looking than the TBM.
Really like the Epic over an M600 or aTBM but for that price point, I’d go with an SF50.
Wow... that article was ......wait for it.....epic.!!!
sorry, but you had to know it was coming....
Seven years for the FAA to issue a cert.
No wonder we are falling behind.
Cool airplanes. Very comfortable and fast
Wait a minute...
So they applied for the certification and it took the FAA seven years to issue it?
Or did it take Epic seven years to get the plane to meet whatever requirements needed for certification?
It is no 737 Max for sure...
LOL well played.
Falling behind what/who?
Good question. Seven years ago the company changed hands and the new owners *announced* that they would pursue a TC. That doesn't exactly sound like a bureaucratic roadblock outside of their control.
and the head rush to judgement
sheesh yoo guys, it’s not even a very long article
“We had some opportunities to...get certification earlier,” King said. “But that would have required some tradeoffs that we weren’t willing to make.”
It's curvier, but not all that dissimilar.
I'm wondering, though, why they need nearly 50% more power to get a 5-10 knot speed edge on the TBM... And maybe not even that, since it can go 3000 feet higher.
