Experimental turboprop adds safety feature.
Lancair continues to make improvements to its single-engine Evolution turboprop, modifying the engine inlet and adding a BRS parachute. The modifications will be included as standard equipment in the experimental airplane kit starting with Serial Number 70, the build of which will begin at the Lancair factory in the end of August, Lancair’s sales and marketing director Doug Meyer said in a press conference at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The price for the BRS adds $60,000 to the kit for a total price, minus firewall forward, of $630,000.
