With a top speed of up to 345 mph, the Lancair IV for sale is the fastest civil aviation, single engine, piston driven aircraft in the world. Turboprop Lancair aircraft can reach speeds of 370 mph.

The Lancair model P is the only aircraft of its type with a pressurized cabin.

The aircraft have been available as kits from Lancair International since 1990.

Unique to the Lancair are Fowler flaps plus high aspect ailerons that add to slow speed handling, and winglets for increased high altitude stability.

Side stick controls add to the feeling and response of flying a fighter-like aircraft, while three axis electric trim eases flight control for the pilot.

To date over 1,870 Lancair aircraft of all types have been purchased for distribution around the world.

We received the following email from John Bailey: "You asked for recommendations of a Lancair IV For Sale. Well, I highly recommend the Lancair IV For Sale from CMP. I equipped mine with a new Evo 35GT engine. I was happy to find the engine started easily once I swapped the ignition module from a four cell battery pack to a six cell one. The engine kicked over with just a couple of turns of the prop. I had to lean out the top end a little and after that the engine ran like a clock. The engine even sounded great, with a very low idle speed. Advancing the throttle quickly brought on the power smoothly. I imagine that the engine will only get better with use.

Take off of the Lancair IV For Sale was simple with all the power available. I barely made any rudder corrections to keep the large airplane right in the center of the runway. It lifted off with barely any control input and grabbed lots of sky while climbing. I throttled a little bit back, and slightly adjusted the aileron and elevator trim for straight and level flight.

The Lancair IV For Sale will fly smoothly and exactly where you point it, even in moderate winds. It has a wide speed envelope. The model is well under control from walking to full speed. At high speed it was very predictable. I tried some rolling climbs and they looked fantastic! Loops can be any size you choose, and rolls are very axial. However, the roll rate is very scale like and not too fast. The Lancair IV For Sale does not have any tendency to wobble. Coordinating rudder with ailerons in the turns will keep the model flying as if on tracks. However, if you don't want to use rudder, it will still fly just fine. Stalls are very gentle. The model just drops the nose a little and will quickly recover. Lowering the flaps doesn't change flight pitch. There is no need for elevator compensation.

Landing the Lancair IV For Sale is easy. Lowering the flaps about 50 percent of travel while going on the downwind approach and then lowering them fully on final over the runway makes for terrific landings. Although there is no pitch change with the flaps lowered, they do an excellent job in slowing the aircraft and increasing lift. On roll out there isn't any problem with nosing over, even in short grass. The rudder is extremely effective until the Lancair IV For Sale is slowed almost to a crawl.

My conclusion is that the Lancair IV For Sale by CMP is one heck of an airplane!"
