Luxuriously Thrilling (LT)
Climb out at 3,000 feet a minute, fully loaded. Advanced composite design along with the 1,200 hp PT-6 enables this pressurized six-seater to easily out-perform anything in its class. The remarkable strength of carbon fiber technology allows for fewer joints, seams and rivets. The result is an airframe which moves through the air with a minimum of disturbance, allowing the Epic LT to travel at 330 KTAS— faster than any other company’s single-engine turboprop.
The LT’s flight deck is everything a pilot could imagine. Large format EFIS panels offer state-of-the-art situational awareness, so pilots can easily manage their cockpit with critical flight information, including XM Wx satellite weather information, traffic awareness (TCAS), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) and navigation flight plans. Ergonomically-designed seats provide generous leg and shoulder room delivering unrivaled crew comfort. Both inside and out, the Epic LT is a pilot’s dream.
The LT is an exciting aircraft for passengers, too. The club seating arrangement with reclining overstuffed leather seats creates a comfortable and plush flight for all passengers. Interior trim elements, custom cabinetry and multimedia options deliver the essence of complete luxury. Nothing is left out. And nothing is left behind. Fore and aft storage compartments offer an abundance of room for baggage.
A Revolutionary Aircraft
The Epic LT redefines the rules by combining turbine power, composite technology, advanced avionics and unforgettable luxury. You and your passengers will cruise faster, higher and further in total comfort. This is a new era in aviation. This is the Epic LT.

The PT6A engine family remains the world’s most popular engine in its class and is one of P&WC’s greatest success stories. Experience gained from the PT6A has helped spawn many of the engine families that have made P&WC a world leader in the gas turbine engine market.
Dependability and versatility have been the hallmarks of the PT6A and continue to be the foundation of the many new PT6A models incorporating the very latest advanced technologies. New aerodynamic and material technologies have enabled the PT6 engine to gain more power without significantly increasing in size. Other innovations have reduced emissions, increased maintenance intervals and further enhanced ease of operation with the introduction of digital electronic control to small gas turbine engines.
Ranging in power from 500 shp to over 2,000 shp, PT6A engines are available in 69 models, offering unsurpassed flexibility and capability for a variety of applications. The numbers speak for themselves: members of the family currently power aircraft in service with more than 6,500 operators in more than 180 countries. More than 41,000 PT6A engines have been produced since the family entered service in the 1960s, accumulating 340 million flying hours. PT6A engines have demonstrated their versatility in powering aircraft applications spanning the airlines, general aviation, business, agricultural and utility markets.
Operators of PT6A engines are supported by P&WC’s industry-leading global customer support. This includes over 30 P&WC-owned and designated service facilities around the world, more than 100 field support representatives on all major continents, a 24/7 Customer First Centre for rapid expert support, the most advanced diagnostic capabilities for this market and the largest pool of P&WC rental and exchange engines in the industry.
