Epic Aviation has announced the transition of all US and Canadian FBOs that were previously branded Air BP (as of Feb 15) to the Epic Aviation fuel brand. Full brand transition will be completed by mid-summer when all FBO signage is converted. "We appreciate how supportive our customers have been about the transition," says Epic Aviation Senior VP Business Development and Strategy Steve McCullough. "Since they were working with Epic Aviation all along, it really just comes down to a logo change." With the launch of the Epic Aviation fuel brand, Epic has announced a strategic alliance with the UVair fuel program.
