The Epic E1000 is an American single-engine, six-seat, turboprop light aircraft under development by Epic Aircraft of Bend, Oregon.
The project’s aim is that the E1000 will be the fastest single-engine civil aircraft at its time of introduction.
A development of the kit-built Epic LT, the E1000 aircraft features a cantilever low-wing, a 6.5 psi pressurized cabin with an airstair door just ahead of the rear seats, retractable tricycle landing gear and a single 1,825 hp (1,361 kW) Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6-67A turboprop aircraft engine, de-rated to 1,200 hp (895 kW) engine in tractor configuration. The aircraft is predominantly made from carbon fiber and its 43 ft (13.1 m) span wing mounts flaps and winglets.
The E1000 will have deicing boots and a heated windshield for certification in known icing conditions.
