We Fly: Watch Our Report on the Epic Aircraft E1000 GX

Fly along on our extended demo mission in the updated single-engine turboprop.

The Epic Aircraft E1000 GX represents a serious upgrade from the initial certified single-engine turboprop that secured FLYING's Innovation Award in 2020. 

In the We Fly report, editor-in-chief Julie Boatman flies this advanced, 1,200 hp cruiser around the Pacific Northwest on an extended demo mission and then shepherds the cross-country machine down to the Florida Keys to do what it does best—travel in style—and capture great photos for the print edition's Issue 933, December 2022/January 2023.

We take the fast turboprop through a standard flight, plus the high work—slow flight, stalls, and maneuvering—before making approaches back into Bend.
