Epic LT / Dynasty
The carbon fibre Epic LT was designed and built by Rick Schameck in 14 months to 2004.
The Epic Dynasty is the certified version of the Epic LT.
With nearly 2000 hours logged toward certification, the Dynasty was undergoing testing mandated by Transport Canada towards Transport Canada Certification, enabling Part 135 on demand charter and air taxi services.
The Dynasty has all the features of the Epic LT, plus some extras. Available long range tanks extend the Dynasty to an estimated range of almost 1900nm. The carbon fiber fuselage paired with a PT-6 engine delivers 340 knots of true air speed. Like the Epic LT, the Dynasty carries six passengers with full fuel and baggage.
