Lancair’s New 2-Seat Barracuda Displayed At Sun ‘N Fun 2019

'Little Brother' To The Company's Mako Airplane

The latest aircraft innovation from Lancair is the Barracuda - a 2-seat “little brother” to the groundbreaking Mako. The first Barracuda, N380L, built by first-time Lancair builder Wade Marcantonio, is now on display at Lancair's Sun 'n Fun exhibit.

“Establishing a new standard for value, Barracuda offers high performance, operational economy and Lancair’s trademark aerodynamic style in a cost-effective package for two We’ve taken the Lancair's design legacy and the best features of the Mako and created an entry-level Lancair for the pilot who wants maximum performance with a minimum investment of build time and budget. We’re expecting Barracuda to be a new leader in the 2-seater performance market,” said Lancair president Conrad Huffstutler.

Barracuda’s design has been developed from the classic Lancair Legacy. The innovative ‘auto-retracting’ nose gear from the Mako adds 10-12 knots to the aircraft's cruise speed by 'cleaning up' the turbulent slipstream behind the propeller. The nose gear is operated by a fully automatic retraction/extension system that requires no action by the pilot. Numerous options will be available to customize the aircraft to the owner’s budget and mission needs.

Inside the cabin, the Barracuda offers a capable and affordable avionics package, typically based on the popular Garmin G3X Touch and GTN-750 components. Barracuda will feature a wide range of options, such as a Carbon build, EFII, Starflight mods and other engines. Other options include freon air conditioning, full de-ice protection and more.
 
With the standard Lycoming IO-390 4-cylinder engine putting out 210 hp, Barracuda offers highly competitive performance and excellent handling throughout the flight envelope. Cruise speed of over 200 mph and fuel consumption of 10 to 12 gph are expected, along with excellent climb rate, range and useful load. With the "speed wing" option and 310 horsepower Continental IO-550-N powerplant, the aircraft cruises at over 220 knots at 14-16 gph. Barracuda pricing starts around $175,000 for a complete kit, including airframe, engine, propeller and avionics.

Lancair's renowned Builder Assist Program is available to help buyers rapidly advance their aircraft to completion. Conducted at our Uvalde, TX factory, the program allows new owners to completely close out critical airframe structures, providing fixtures, supplies and one-on-one training and support. Lancair’s basic 2 week Builder Assistance program is included with every sale. A fully completed “Fly-Away” aircraft program is also available for an additional cost.
