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

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

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