The plane Lancair Propjet was first introduced in the year 2004, and with almost the same time began to be issued «Lancair» now standard until the end of the year 2012. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft will be equipped with a piston engine, but at the final stage of the project it was decided to use a turboprop powerplant, and providing greater traction and higher travel speed. However, because of this change has greatly increased the cost of the aircraft, and therefore the manufactured products was not very popular among the customers.

Turboprop aircraft engine Walter M601E-11 used Lancair Propjet model is capable of pulling power in 750 hp, which in turn allows the aircraft to provide maximum flight speed in 670 km \ h., Which is quite impressive for a light aircraft. maximum flight range of the aircraft is limited 2270 kilometers, which also meets the wishes of customers, and even allows you to carry out long flights.
Like most aircraft company «Lancair», model Lancair Propjet produced American aircraft manufacturers as kits for self-assembly, in this case, for complete aircraft assembly requires about 900-1000 hours and the availability of relevant experience and specialized tools, which is one of the reasons why it the aircraft was not operated in the commercial airline industry.
