Aircraft Lancair 360 was created based on the model Lancair 320And at the same time, no significant changes in the plan has not undergone its technical performance - the main difference is the new avionics, and used a more powerful power plant.

As before, the aircraft model Lancair 360 used not only by private owners, and the Air Force for training military pilots, as well as a patrol aircraft for surveillance of the terrain. The greatest spread of the aircraft was in civil aviation, which mainly contributed to an acceptable cost, combined with high flight performance of the aircraft.

The aircraft Lancair 360 produced American aircraft manufacturers in the form of kits for self-assembly, and, thanks to the unification of the majority of parts and components, turnkey aircraft can be collected in less than 800 hours, which also meets the basic principles of customer.

Thanks to retractable landing gear and more aerodynamic forms, the plane Lancair 360 have reduced drag, making it more sustainable in terms of management, as well as more maneuverable, which is also important, especially given the fact that the aircraft was used and as a sports aircraft.


Cabin Lancair 360


The cabin of the aircraft Lancair 360 has remained almost unchanged, and as before, it was designed to accept only two people - a pilot and a passenger, or the instructor and the trainee if the plane was used as a training aircraft. Due to limited space, transportation on board any goods is not possible, in principle, and was not scheduled aircraft manufacturers of the company «Lancair».

In contrast to the model Lancair 320, 360 Lancair aircraft received a more powerful propulsion system provided by one four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-360, the ability to develop tractive power 180 hp, which in turn affected the increase in the maximum flight speed component 435 km \ h. The maximum flight range of the aircraft also increased to some extent, and was 2300 kilometers, which is more than meets the requirements for the aircraft of that type.

Subsequently, in 1997 year, on the basis of the aircraft appeared a modified version - Lancair 360TC, the main distinguishing feature of which is a lightweight fuselage is made of carbon fiber, as well as turbocharged powerplant capable of more effectively withstand the overload during the flight.
