During my tenure as President of Lancair International I spent many hours flying the company’s first Legacy prototype. While it was quite rough to look at and had seen through many mishaps over the years, it was simply a phenomenal aircraft for fast and efficient cross country flying. When we decided to shut the line down looking for a buyer, I decided it might be a good idea to purchase one of the last kits for my own. This kit was built at the Redmond facility by those most familiar with kit. I had the added benefit of hiring some of the most experienced technicians that had been around since the original Legacy production started to lend a hand completing the critical composite and landing gear installation tasks. Wings, flight surfaces, and tail were all closed by these same talented individuals.
I have since completed installation of the hydraulic system, custom Valin interior and instrument panel, and carbon avionics tray. The kit is complete and I even have the belly mod for the kit available for any buyer interested for an additional $2250 who need the fastest possible Legacy they can build.
The wings are ready for speed brakes but I have not purchased them yet and the engine mount is set up for a Lycoming e 540/580 ngine installation. Cowling is carbon as is most of the rest of the airframe.
Legacy kit 345 is located in Deer Park Washington at the KDEW airport if interested in having a look.
Next step is assembly for bodywork fit and finish and then on to electrical, then engine. Experienced builder could complete this in a few months and start enjoying one of the funnest aircraft I have ever flown.
