Jet-Class Performance

The equation is simple. The strength-to-weight benefits of carbon fiber, generously applied to a sophisticated aerodynamic airframe, attached to a 1200-horsepower engine delivers results that are simply…Epic.

No other high-performance aircraft employs carbon fiber so extensively throughout its airframe, including skins, spars and flight controls, enabling the E1000 GX to consistently outperform the competition, delivering unrivaled power, performance, comfort and versatility. With cruise speeds of 333 KTAS, climb rate of 4,000 feet per minute, full fuel payload of 1,100 pounds, and range over 1,560 nautical miles, the E1000 GX offers true jet-class performance at a highly competitive price and operating cost.

Inspired Innovation – Designed and Engineered

The E1000 GX is the result of Epic’s unwavering commitment to a pilot-driven design process, where performance, function and form are all priorities. Human factors, styling, layout and design goals complement those of engineering to optimize the user experience, providing tremendous safety benefits, ease of operation, and fun.

Design features of the E1000 GX include:

  • Wedge-shaped annunciation panel with pre-takeoff configuration check and AOA indicator.
  • Fuel tank selector, with automatic fuel balancing and capacitive fuel gauges with low fuel warning system.
  • Torque limiter to facilitate flight operations and enhance safety.
  • Enviro Systems® eKAPS II automatic digital cabin pressurization and climate system, including ground-operable air conditioning.
  • Deice equipment, including pneumatic boots on wings and horizontal, bleed-air heated windscreen, heated propeller, heated pitot tubes and stall vanes, plus pilot-controlled engine inertial separator.
  • Rugged retractable trailing link landing gear, with engine-driven hydraulic actuation, decoupling nose steering, and pneumatic emergency blowdown.
  • Piston-actuated, hydraulic-operated single disc brakes for superior slowing and stopping capability and easier ground handling while taxiing.
  • Control system combines cable, bell crank and push-pull rod systems, ensuring a positive, stable, controlled aircraft with smooth inputs throughout the flight envelope.

Luxury, Comfort and Style

The E1000 GX is sleek and statuesque, with elegant lines that draw attention on even the busiest ramps. The cockpit and cabin are spacious, with generous head and leg room able to accommodate 6’8″ tall pilots and passengers. The expansive wraparound windshield provides excellent crew visibility and the oversized cabin windows brighten the interior. The impressive 1,100-pound full fuel payload can accommodate up to six adults and 200 pounds of luggage.

The leather reclining seats are each equipped with side pockets, small item & technology storage, headset jacks, power ports, beverage holders, heat and air conditioning vents, and LED reading lights. Electronically-dimmable windows offer precision control over light, glare, heat and UV rays. Technologically-advanced sound proofing reduces engine noise, further enhancing cabin comfort.

Expand Your Horizons

From busy urban airports to remote backcountry airstrips, the versatile E1000 GX gives you access to hundreds of destinations not available to most high-performance aircraft. Its superior short field and slow handling capabilities, rugged trailing link landing gear, and full reversing prop let you operate out of airstrips in exotic locations just as comfortably as being at home. Imagine the possibilities.

Advanced Avionics

The innovative, ergonomically designed all-glass flight deck is a masterpiece of luxury, comfort, sophistication and functionality, with advanced situational analysis and consolidated workflow managed via convenient accessible controls. The pilot command center intuitively positions all critical inputs to reduce reach and fatigue. The logic on the panel is cleverly laid out, with button sequencing from left to right for startup and right to left for shutdown.

Fully integrated with the Garmin G1000 NXi Avionics Suite, the GFC 700 Automated Flight Control System (AFCS) provides flight director, autopilot, yaw damper, automatic and manual trim capabilities, along with advanced safety features such as coupled go-around, emergency descent protection and more, all intended to inspire confidence and ensure safe, smooth flight operations.
