Epic Flight Academy Establishes Hebron, Kentucky, Operations

Epic Flight Academy established its new FAA Part 147 aircraft mechanic school at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) in Hebron, Kentucky.
The approximately 32,000-square-foot facility consists of more than 15,000 square feet of shop space/training area and nearly 16,000 square feet of classrooms and finished office space.
“Workforce development is the most important and proactive step we can take for the future of Kentucky’s economy,” said Governor Andy Beshear. “This new training facility from Epic Flight Academy will train workers at CVG, helping prepare thousands of Kentuckians to make an impact in their communities, while also supporting their families through skilled, well-paying jobs. We’re committed to building a pipeline for a skilled workforce, and this is the latest example of that commitment.”
Epic Flight Academy offers students the opportunity to become an FAA-certified airframe and powerplant (A&P) aviation mechanic in the aerospace industry. Epic Flight Academy Aircraft Mechanic Program welcomed its first class of students in 2020, and students began training at CVG on April 15, 2024. The program takes approximately 18 months.
“The demand for aircraft maintenance technicians is ever-growing, and Epic Flight Academy has begun filling that need with their first class starting last week,” noted Lee Crume, President and CEO of BE NKY Growth Partnership. “The new jobs being created by CVG’s cargo and passenger growth offer tremendous opportunities in the Cincinnati region.”
“We are pleased to welcome Epic Flight Academy to CVG, and we look forward to growing this partnership. Aircraft mechanics are in high demand,” added CVG CEO Candace McGraw. “Epic Flight Academy will open doors for students across our region who represent the future of the aviation industry and will provide a well-trained pipeline for employment at CVG.”
