Work on the design and development of the Lancair Evolution aircraft began in the 2005 year, while American aircraft manufacturers were able to create a multi-purpose aircraft used more as an administrative type aircraft, which was mainly due to its high cost, which according to 2011 data , depending on the configuration and a number of features, could range from 950 thousand dollars to 1 million 250 thousand dollars.

Turboprop aircraft Lancair Evolution has high maneuverability and is able to move at high enough speeds, which naturally makes it very effective as a business class aircraft, despite its compact design. The high speed of flight of the Lancair Evolution is mainly due to the use of a powerful Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A turboprop powerplant capable of developing thrust in 750 hp, which in turn provides the maximum flight speed in 470 km / h, which is very acceptable. Among other things, the aircraft model Lancair Evolution is able to overcome and fairly long 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) .

Aircraft Lancair Evolution

Over the entire production period from 2008 to 2011, the 16 aircraft of this model were built, and, in addition to the turboprop power plant, a piston aircraft engine was used on one of the aircraft, which in other respects did not satisfy the aircraft manufacturers due to the low performance of the aircraft, in view of which, such production was suspended and only Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A turboprop engines were installed on the aircraft.
