Rich Lucibella, the buyer and builder of an Epic Aircraft LT single-engine turboprop under the corporate name Blue Sky Avgroup, filed a lawsuit against Epic Aircraft, alleging that the kit manufacturer took his money and never delivered the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67A engine needed to complete the airplane. According to the lawsuit, “The actions of Epic in being unable to identify or otherwise account for Blue Sky’s [engine] has resulted in Blue Sky maintaining a reasonable and well founded fear that Epic has misappropriated either the…engine or Blue Sky’s pre-paid funds.” In a response to the suit, Epic said it delivered the kit as specified in the contract, but that the contents of the kit “do not include an engine.”
