After 34 years in the Pacific Northwest, Lancair International has relocated to the sunny climate of South Texas!
From their new Uvalde, Texas home, Lancair offers full support for existing aircraft owners with parts, technical assistance and documentation as well as maintenance, repairs and inspections for Lancair and other experimental aircraft. In addition, on-site access to maintenance, avionics, paint and interior completion facilities ensure a convenient “one-stop” solution for owners and kit builders.
As part of the move, Lancair's inventory and assets in the Philippines will return to the US. Soon, the company plans to return to production, bringing back the Legacy and ES models along with enhancements to the existing fleet and new aircraft designs. A frequent host for national and world soaring competitions, Uvalde's Garner Field airport (KUVA) is an ideal site for aircraft development and flight testing.
Lancair International LLC. pioneered advanced composite aircraft kits in 1984. Since then, more than 2,100 Lancair kits have been sold in more than 34 countries, on 5 continents. Many hundreds are flying today with tens of thousands of flight hours logged. Lancair is proud to promote the highest standards of safety in the industry.
Lancair International manufactures advanced composite structures and precision machined aircraft components at its Uvalde, Texas facility, and has established proprietary relationships with hand-selected vendors in the USA and around the world.
History always in the Making
The Lancair family of aircraft has covered the range of private pilot aircraft from the solid two-seat aerobatic Lancair Legacy, the economical two-seat Legacy fixed-gear to the four-seat, fixed-gear Lancair ES, the 330 mph Lancair IV speedster to the fourth-ever pressurized piston single in the history of aviation, the Lancair IV-P. In 2000 Lancair added a turbine engine option to the Lancair IV-P. This high-powered turbine propelled the Lancair IV-P to incredible speeds of up to 370 mph!
Lancair’s goal is to play an important part in shaping the future of modern aviation through innovation, technical advancement, safety, aesthetics, and of course, producing the best in high performance aircraft.
In February 2003, founder and president, Lance Neibauer announced the sale of his kit company to Joseph C. Bartels, a previous Lancair IV-P customer. In 2010, the Wolstenholme family of Colmar, Pennsylvania, who had been major stockholders of the company, assumed ownership and control with the naming of Bob Wolstenholme as CEO. Mr. Wolstenholme had built two Lancair IV aircraft and now, has also built an Evolution.
In February 2017, Lancair International ,LLC was created and operations were relocated to Uvalde, Texas. The new company, Lancair International LLC, supports the 320/360, IV, IV-P, ES and Legacy models as well as continuing development of upgrades and new aircraft models. Development of the Evolution models is now supported by a separate company, Evolution Aircraft, based in Redmond, Oregon.
