Oshkosh, WI – July 26, 2018: Finding room for improvement on a Lancair is a challenge, but the new team continues to develop useful upgrades for both new and classic models. Introduced at EAA AirVenture 2018, the XL Baggage Door offers improved access for all non-pressurized 4-place models, including ES, IV and Mako.
Lancair’s new XL baggage door is 40% larger than the original design, opening up baggage compartment access for larger items, such as oversize suitcases, golf bags and more. Door area is increased from 375 sq. in. to over 530 sq. in. In addition, instead of the previous top-hinged arrangement, the new door features heavier-duty hinges, relocated to the leading edge of the door.
