Lancair Announces The End Of The 'Legacy'

Company Says Ending Production Is A 'Necessary Decision'

Lancair has announced that it will no longer be offering "Legacy" kits after 15 years of production.

In a post on the company's website, Lancair said that the final kit will be a retractable Lancair Legacy "Reno Race Version." Closing down the Legacy production line was a "tough but necessary decision," according to Lancair.

"We have come to a point where a significant investment will be necessary to continue the production and after 15 years we feel it is time for something new," the company said. "Lancair has always been the leader in performance and that is not going to change anytime soon. This decision has ignited a fire of enthusiasm and excitement around Lancair. What is next? While we are not ready to even suggest what we are thinking, you can be sure that it will not disappoint those who have come to expect innovation, performance, and beautiful designs.

"Like other Lancair models that are not in production, Lancair will continue to offer both technical support and parts for the Legacy models."

Lancair says that there are still three kits available, including the final Reno Race variant.
