MAKO-style LED Wingtip Kit

Closeup of Lancair Mako Wingtip

Lancair ES owners — the sleek new Mako wingtips are now a high-tech retrofit for your ES or ES-P. An easy replacement for the stock wingtips, the Mako tips add approx. 7” to each wing.

They also incorporate a brilliant 6-LED light array, substantially improving the ES’s (marginal) original lighting and making your Lancair as bright as an airliner! Producing over 450,000 Candela (per set), these super efficient landing and navigation lights increase landing and takeoff visibility as well as enhancing your airplane’s “presence” on the ramp.

The wingtips’ subtle reshaping improves the aircraft’s handling by reducing roll coupling — the tendency to ‘skid’ in the air when rudder is applied. Many manufacturers add a spring in between the ailerons and rudder to force mechanical roll coupling. The Mako wingtips now achieve this aerodynamically, while reducing drag and looking great — day or night!
