July 29, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin  - With 25 years of producing kits for homebuilders under its wings, Lancair International marked the occasion by announcing the first flight of a customer- built Turbine Evolution and the appearance of two factory examples at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2009.

The company is staging its own Turbine Evolution at nearby Fond du Lac Airport for demonstration work, while the first Piston Evolution sits at the company display to show customers and prospects. The piston version marks the first original equipment manufacturer use of Lycoming’s new TEO-540-EXP twin-turbocharger engine with iE2 single- lever power control.

Both Evolution models offer owners the comfort of a pressurized cabin, allcomposite construction, and great speed, efficiency, and utility. Panel options include Avidyne’s new Entegra Release 9 integrated panel and the G900X suite from Garmin.

The airframe can also accommodate a BRS whole-plane parachute system for added security, as well energy-absorbing seats and airbag seat belts.

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