Lancair ES aircraft production was carried out on the basis of a different model Lancair IV, moreover in a constructive plan of the aircraft structure is practically no changes had, however, aircraft performance characteristics of the aircraft greatly improved. Nevertheless, the release of the aircraft was quite small and was formally terminated in 2012 year, primarily due to low demand due to the significantly increased cost compared with the model, which was carried out on the basis of the design of the aircraft.
At its core, the plane Lancair ES is a multi-purpose aircraft, which allows not only to transport people, but also be used as an aircraft for training pilots of the future, be used as a sports aircraft. However, due to the very limited size of the cabin, the aircraft Lancair ES is not suitable for the transport of any cargo.
aircraft cabin is designed for reception of four people - a pilot and three passengers, however, due to the fact that the aircraft was manufactured by American aircraft manufacturers of the company «Lancair» solely as self-assembly kits, aircraft in commercial use have been received.

The design of the aircraft has good aerodynamic shape, which in turn allows it to be very agile and move at high speeds. As the power plant is used a six-cylinder piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-540, 270 developmental thrust in hp, which in turn provides a high speed of flight -. To 350 km \ h, which is quite acceptable especially considering the fact that the aircraft the device falls into the category of light. The maximum flight distance as easily meets the requirements of customers, accounting for up to 2200 kilometers, which actually allows you to operate the aircraft even of extended distances that need to be overcome.
In addition to the basic version Lancair ES aircraft, American aircraft manufacturers had also Implemented release and modified release Lancair Super ES, differ in some technical and design features such as a more powerful propulsion engine provided Continental IO-550 310 power in hp, which provided higher airspeed, however, increased and the cost of an aircraft for the future owners.
