Lancair ES aircraft production was carried out on the basis of a different model Lancair IV, moreover in a constructive plan of the aircraft structure is practically no changes had, however, aircraft performance characteristics of the aircraft greatly improved. Nevertheless, the release of the aircraft was quite small and was formally terminated in 2012 year, primarily due to low demand due to the significantly increased cost compared with the model, which was carried out on the basis of the design of the aircraft.

At its core, the plane Lancair ES is a multi-purpose aircraft, which allows not only to transport people, but also be used as an aircraft for training pilots of the future, be used as a sports aircraft. However, due to the very limited size of the cabin, the aircraft Lancair ES is not suitable for the transport of any cargo.

aircraft cabin is designed for reception of four people - a pilot and three passengers, however, due to the fact that the aircraft was manufactured by American aircraft manufacturers of the company «Lancair» solely as self-assembly kits, aircraft in commercial use have been received.

The design of the aircraft has a good aerodynamic shape, which in turn allows it to be very maneuverable and move at high speeds. As a power plant, one Lycoming IO-540 piston six-cylinder aircraft engine is used here, developing a thrust of 270 hp, which in turn provides a high flight speed - up to 350 km / h, which is very acceptable especially considering the fact that the flying the device belongs to the category of lungs. The maximum flight range also fully satisfies the requirements of customers, amounting to 2200 kilometers, which in fact allows the aircraft to operate even over long distances that must be covered.

In addition to the main version of the Lancair ES aircraft, American aircraft manufacturers also produced a modified version of the Lancair Super ES, which differed in some technical and design features, in particular, a more powerful power plant represented by the Continental IO-550 engine with a capacity of 310 hp, which provided higher flight speed, but also increased the cost of the aircraft for future owners.
