Lancair Legacy

Participation of Advanced Design Alliance in the Lancair Legacy project began thanks to Dmitry Fayner, Kharkiv, Ukraine, the owner of the airplane.

ADA's project share included completing the following tasks:

  • • definition of aircraft configuration in cooperation with the customer and manufacturer (Lancair company);
  • • assisting the customer at the manufacturer's site to complete compulsory tasks on building the airplane and flight training;
  • • customer support on actual building the airplane;
  • • translation and editing of the technical documentation;
  • • strength check of the newly designed steel semi-fork of the main gear;
  • • implementation of a bigger nose wheel to improve performance on grass runway;
  • • implementation of a door to the baggage compartment.

The first Ukranian Legacy made its maiden flight in October 2009.
