Lancair Propjet

From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere

The Lancair Propjet is a four-seat, pressurized, composite aircraft powered by a 750-hp Walter 601E turboprop engine. The aircraft is based on Lancair's successful kit-plane, the Lancair IV. Like its piston-powered predecessor, the Propjet is known for its incredible performance, with a typical cruise speed of 325 knots at 24,000 feet and a climb performance of 4,000 feet-per-minute (or greater) all the way up to flight level (18,000 feet) altitudes.
