Designing the plane Lancair Propjet conducted the American aircraft manufacturer based Lancair IV model. During the development of the aircraft. American engineers have been able not only to optimize its design, making it more efficient and aerodynamic, but in fact, most of the opportunity to upgrade the aircraft.

The Lancair Propjet was first introduced in 2004 year, and almost from the same time it was produced by the company "Lancair" serially, until the end of 2012. Initially, it was assumed that the aircraft would be equipped with a reciprocating engine, but at the final stage of the project it was decided to use a turboprop powerplant, which provided both a higher thrust and a higher speed of movement. Nevertheless, because of this change, the cost of the aircraft significantly increased, and therefore the products manufactured did not enjoy great popularity among customers.

The Walter M601E-11 turboprop aircraft engine used in the Lancair Propjet is capable of developing a thrust power of 750 hp, which in turn allows the aircraft to provide a maximum flight speed of 670 km / h, which is quite impressive for a light aircraft. the maximum flight range of this aircraft is limited to 2270 kilometers, which also meets the wishes of customers, and allows even long-term flights.

Like most aircraft company «Lancair», model Lancair Propjet produced American aircraft manufacturers as kits for self-assembly, in this case, for complete aircraft assembly requires about 900-1000 hours and the availability of relevant experience and specialized tools, which is one of the reasons why it the aircraft was not operated in the commercial airline industry.

The cabin Lancair Propjet aircraft can accommodate three passengers and the pilot, at the same time, the aircraft in addition, is also able to be used also as a sports aircraft that is due to among other things a high maneuverability. Due to the small size of the aircraft cabin, carrying on board the cargo is not possible, however, initially it is not included in the plans «Lancair» company management.
