Aero-TV: The Lancair Factory - Where High Performance Begins
Kim Lorentzen Provides a Tour of Lancair's Redmond Facility
As composite structures began to emerge in the late 1970s, Lance Neibauer's
aviation interest quickly went from hobby to inspiration; having graduated
with a BFA in Graphic Design, Neibauer believed he could develop a sleekly
designed aircraft that optimized both performance and handling. The
resulting Lancair 200 made its aviation debut in 1984, premiering for
Oshkosh attendees the following year. Exhibiting such advancement, the
Lancair 200 is now displayed at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
Museum in Oshkosh, WI.
The Lancair team became synonymous with innovative aircraft, including the
Lancair 320/360, whose unprecedented design and beauty earned a display

Aircraft'), eventually developing the type-certificated, piston

Gear, Lancair Legacy, Lancair ES, Lancair ES-P, Lancair IV, Lancair IV-P,
and the Lancair Evolution. Located at the Redmond, OR airport, Lancair
International operates a 38,000 square-foot facility featuring full service
maintenance and builder assist programs; the builder assist program allows
Lancair customers to receive hands-on technical assistance and guidance
throughout their aircraft build. Currently, the program is offered for all
