The first attempts to create a model airplane Epic LT Dinasty American aircraft were done in 2002 year, and after a very short design work in 2004, the aircraft made its first flight.

Despite the low cost, the aircraft Epic LT Dinasty for the period of its production is not very popular, and this is due not so much to the bankruptcy of the company "Epic Aircraft", but to the fact that the aircraft was produced and is being produced at the moment in the form of kits for self Assemblies, which, even with the availability of specialized tools and equipment, require an order of 1100-1200 hours of operation, which is unacceptable. Initially, the Chinese aircraft builders expected to start the production of fully-prepared aircraft, however, this greatly increased their price, which resulted in the decision to refuse such a step.

The aircraft Epic LT Dinasty has a very attractive design and good flying characteristics, which allows to some extent compete with aircraft of this type of other world-famous aircraft manufacturers. On board the model Epic LT Dinasty can accommodate up to 6 people, in particular, it is a pilot and five passengers, however, often aircraft of this model are mainly used as an administrative type aircraft. Due to the limited free space on board the aircraft, the Epic LT Dinasty is unsuitable for cargo transportation, although the payload taken on board allows it.

The power plant of the Epic LT Dinasty model is presented in the form of one Pratt & Whitney PT6-67A turboprop aircraft engine, capable of developing a total thrust of 1200 hp, which is quite acceptable, and at the same time makes it possible to accelerate the aircraft to a speed of 630 km / h ... (aircraft cruising speed). The maximum distance that an Epic LT Dinasty aircraft can cover is about 3470 kilometers, which, in the absence of the above disadvantages, would allow the aircraft to be used in the commercial sphere, in particular, as an air taxi or an aircraft for transporting passengers to local and regional airlines.
