Work on the design and development of aircraft Lancair Evolution began in 2005 year, while the American aircraft manufacturers were able to create a multipurpose aircraft, used to a greater extent as the aircraft of the administrative type, which was mainly due to its high cost, which according to 2011 year , depending on the configuration and the number of features that can vary from thousands of dollars to 950 1 250 million thousand dollars.

The Lancair Evolution turboprop aircraft has high maneuverability and is capable of moving at sufficiently high speeds, which naturally makes it very efficient as a business class aircraft, despite the compactness of the design. The high speed of Lancair Evolution is mainly due to the use of a powerful turbo-prop powerplant Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A capable of developing traction in 750 hp, which in turn provides a maximum speed of flight at 470 km / h, which is very acceptable. Among other things, the aircraft model Lancair Evolution is able to overcome and quite large distances - the maximum range of its flight is 2098 kilometers, which also meets most of the requirements.

The cockpit of the Lancair Evolution aircraft can accommodate up to four people on board the aircraft - one pilot and three passengers, and, depending on the customer's requirements, can perform in several different variations, including according to the design project presented by the buyer. The salon has enough spacious dimensions, which does not cause any confusion and makes even long flights very comfortable. For cargo transportation, the Lancair Evolution aircraft is also suitable - the maximum payload placed on its board is 907 kilogram (taking into account its own weight of pilots and passengers), however for these purposes the aircraft is not used due to its features (small size and high cost) .

During the whole production period of 2008 on 2011 years 16 aircrafts of this model, and, in addition to turboprop power plant on one of the aircraft was used and piston aircraft engine, that in other not satisfy aircraft manufacturers due to low flight performance of the aircraft were built, in view of which such production was suspended and airplanes began to be established exclusively turboprop engines Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A.
