Classic Aero-TV: The Lancair Barracuda - Building On Their Legacy

From 2018 (YouTube Version): Two Seats, 200 Knot Cruise, Starting At $200K

The latest innovation from Lancair is a new 2-seat “little brother” to the groundbreaking Mako — the Barracuda. Establishing a new standard for value, Barracuda offers high performance, operational economy and Lancair’s trademark aerodynamic style in a cost-effective package.

Barracuda’s design is similar to the classic Lancair Legacy. It incorporates numerous airframe improvements, notably a new 1-piece wing with greater span. The new wing makes aircraft handling more docile and significantly reduces build time. 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 are available to customize the aircraft to the owner’s budget and mission needs.

Barracuda pricing starts at $200,000 for a complete kit, including airframe, engine, propeller and avionics. The first kits are scheduled for delivery in early 2019.
