The development of the Lancair Legacy aircraft was carried out on the basis of the Lancair 320 model, and, in fact, the aircraft was nothing more than an upgraded version of this model without significant design changes, but with higher flight performance characteristics, ensuring more efficient operation of the aircraft.

The plane Lancair Legacy is a multipurpose aircraft designed primarily for civil aviation, however, the aircraft is also actively exploited, and air forces of several countries, in particular this applies to Colombia, where the plane serves as the training and patrol aircraft.

Due to its compact size, the Lancair Legacy aircraft has high maneuverability, however, due to this advantage, the aircraft can only take on board two people and cannot be used to transport goods. After the modernization of the aircraft, its ergonomics of control significantly improved, which in turn made it possible to carry out even long flights in comfortable conditions, and the maximum flight range of the aircraft is 1851 kilometers, which is very significant. Among other things, this aircraft also found its application as a sports aircraft, which is facilitated by the above-described good maneuverability and high flight speed.

The Lancair Legacy power plant consists of one Continental IO-550-N piston-type aircraft engine, six working cylinders of which are capable of providing the aircraft with a thrust development of 310 hp. The maximum speed developed by the Lancair Legacy aircraft during the flight is 500 km / h, which is more than acceptable.
