Doug King brings his successful business experience and passion for aviation to his leadership position at Epic Aircraft. Initially involved with the company as an LT aircraft owner, Doug organized a group of dedicated customers to purchase Epic out of bankruptcy, establishing himself as Managing Partner.
In March of 2012, Epic Aircraft was purchased by a private investor who agreed to fund the company’s type certification program. Doug assumed the role of CEO, resolutely guiding the company’s certification efforts and successfully delivering the certified Epic E1000 industry-leading all carbon fiber aircraft to a broad and eager market in November 2019.
Prior to joining Epic, Doug owned several highly successful transaction processing and computer services businesses in Southern California. He was instrumental in revitalizing the operations of Syncro Aircraft in Van Nuys, California, a premier business jet refurbishment center on the west coast that specializes in Gulfstream, Learjet, Hawker, Boeing and Falcon aircraft.
