PERFORMANCE perfected – outperforms the competition at every turn

Introduced at EAA AirVenture 2017, the MAKO is the sleek new 4-place design from legendary composite aircraft pioneer Lancair.

With Mako, the emphasis is on usable performance - not just 'bragging rights' but real world responsiveness you can count on every day. Starting with a sturdy composite airframe that's built to stringent utility class standards, the Mako is designed for the long haul.

Painstaking aerodynamic refinement helps you get the maximum out of every gallon of fuel without compromising the Mako's nimble, yet docile handling characteristics. Carefully shaped LED wingtips minimize roll coupling while providing more illumination than even a 747! Finally, the (optional) auto-retracting nose gear adds 10-12 knots of cruise speed by eliminating the high-drag nose gear from the turbulent prop wash - without the potential insurance penalty of a fully retractable gear aircraft.

Ultimate performance is, of course, dependent on the powerplant. And Mako's robust airframe is engineered to accommodate multiple engine options. Select from a variety of Continental or Lycoming motors - normal or turbocharged - that best match your 'sweet spot' for power, range, altitude and fuel consumption.

In short, the Mako offers an unequaled range of options to meet your mission requirements, providing a beautiful, capable and easy-to-fly alternative to Cirrus and Cessna TTx at a fraction of the cost.


INNOVATION implemented – exhilarating and efficient

When we looked at the design of other four-seat airplanes, we saw plenty of room for improvement. And more room is what you get. Mako's interior is a spacious 46 inches across and 48 inches in height. Along with the generous shoulder and headroom, passengers enjoy outstanding visibility through large windows and the one-piece windshield. Space is also maximized in the ample baggage area, where you can carry all the gear you need for a lengthy trip.

To keep your passengers seated in comfort, we've included inflatable door seals that keep the cabin shielded from whistling wind and engine noise. A custom sound-proofing package, developed exclusively for Lancair, is available to make the cabin even quieter.

But comfort and convenience doesn't mean sacrificing speed. With a standard Lycoming IO-540 engine, you can cruise smoothly at 220 mph. Climb rate, takeoff distance and range set new benchmarks for power, performance and efficiency. Plus, thanks to our precision tuned induction system, fuel consumption is 10-15% less than other similarly powered aircraft.

Innovation is key to Mako's performance. The auto-retractable nose gear streamlines Mako's aerodynamics while twin gullwing-style cabin doors make cabin access easy for passengers and pilot alike. New high-style wingtips improve handling by reducing roll coupling, while improving nighttime visibility with 600,000 candela of high-intensity LED light - brighter than a Boeing 747!

The new Lancair Mako synthesizes 35 years of aviation experience into one unforgettable aircraft. An ideal balance of comfort and capability at a price no comparable plane can match.


COMFORT & CONVENIENCE

From the moment you settle into the seat and pull the gullwing door closed, you'll feel like the Mako was made for you. The sleek aesthetic of the aircraft's exterior is echoed in the purposeful interior design. Like a premium sports sedan, Mako's cabin provides an inviting environment with superb visibility and exceptional control.

Mako's cabin design is driven by ergonomics as much as by aerodynamics. Behind the raked panoramic windshield is a cozy, comfortable cockpit, optimized for piloting from either side. The center console stick and dual side-mounted throttles offer pilots an easy-to-fly aircraft that makes even long flights a relaxing experience.

Supple ergonomic seating keeps passengers comfy and secure, while careful attention to streamlining, form and fit ensures a quiet cabin with minimal noise and vibration. And interior customization is virtually unlimited. From the outside in, optional upgrades include everything from dual gullwing doors, articulating seats and electric freon air conditioning to inflatable shoulder harnesses and state of the art entertainment and lighting packages.

The real test is a long-range flight. After comparing to a 5 or 6 hour flight in a Cirrus or a TTx, the Mako's form-fitting seats and comfortable control layout will ensure you touch down feeling rested and ready for whatever's next.



AVIONICS

Just below Mako's panoramic windscreen lies a clean, uncluttered instrument panel, designed to embrace the pilot with essential information and superb visibility. The 'pistol-grip' style control stick emerges from a center console designed to easily accommodate a Garmin GTN-750 Com/Nav/GPS unit. Simple, intuitive controls for engine start, fuel and essentials are fingertip-accessible, while ample space for dual Garmin touchscreen PFD/MFD displays resides in direct view of both front seat occupants.

Dual side-mounted throttles make fine engine control a snap, while integral air conditioning vents and LED lighting keep the cockpit comfortable and well illuminated in any weather conditions.

Perhaps the best attribute of Mako's avionics, however, is the opportunity to customize your panel to your specific desires and budget. Lancair's avionics design experts are ready to help you engineer a purpose-built cockpit that is perfectly suited to your preferences. With high-capacity electrical supply and ample space for expansion both on the panel and behind it, Mako is ready for whatever avionics suite you can imagine.

Building Your Mako.

Originally created in 1999, our Builder Assist Program set out to help jump-start our builders and cut off up to a year of build time. The program teaches proper composite skills, provides you with experienced technical assistance in the crucial early stages of your aircraft assembly and allows a major portion of your aircraft to be completed in record time.

Conducted at our facility in Uvalde, Texas, our Builder Assist Program allows you to completely close out both wings, horizontal stabilizer and elevators in a single week. Stay for a second week and install your door, windshield and windows. Lancair provides the fixtures, tools, supplies and one-on-one training, letting you head home with not only a lot accomplished, but also the knowledge and confidence to quickly and accurately complete your airframe.

We have expanded the Builder Assist Program to include the option to finish building your airplane at our facilities, with our guidance, in our optional Builder Completion Program. In just a matter of weeks you will be flying home in your new Mako.


Experience Lancair Performance for Yourself.

Because seeing is believing, we invite you to visit our facilities and experience the Mako and our Builder Assist Program first-hand. More than just a simple factory tour, we’ll illustrate to you the insight, the process and the attention to detail that make Lancair aircraft the finest in the sky, and among the easiest to construct in the kit aircraft industry. Then, after a demo ride in the Mako, you’ll be convinced. Mako combines speed, utility and incredible ramp appeal-all in one elegant, cost-effective package.

That’s the Lancair difference. That’s Lancair performance.
