Epic Aircraft is now the owner of its manufacturing facility. It had been leasing the facility but now was able to acquire the 90, 000 square foot building at the Bend Airport. Robert Raimondi with Compass Commercial Real Estate Services says this is just another sign a troubled industry is making a comeback here. “I think its going to be tremendous catalysts to re-establishing Central Oregon as an aviation center once again. I'm very hopeful that 's the case. I think our next big hurdle is the Cessna facility to fill it and bring back more jobs to Central Oregon.” Earlier this year, Epic Air was bought by a Russian company, and with this acquisition, can obtain additional certification to produce not only experimental aircraft but production aircraft as well.
