Lancair announces new piston
By Allison Reineck

Lancair International Inc. announced Monday that they have teamed up with Lycoming to create a new piston powerplant for the Evolution.

After many requests from customers, the companies decided to partner to offer the new aircraft. "Our customers requested a non-turbine Evolution," Neil Longwill said. "The next available Evolution will be in April."

The Evolution hosts a maximum cruise speed of 270 knots true airspeed at 28,000 feet, and it provides a new level of safety with its slow pattern and landing speeds. Its single lever control reduces pilot workload and is expected to use 22 gallons of 100LL per hour with a payload of 1,080 pounds.

AirVenture attendees can view the Evolution at the North Aircraft Display area, located just south of the Warbirds area.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
