With a 168-gallon fuel tank that is necessary to feed the turbine-powered Evolution, the range of the piston Evo borders on the ridiculous. With an economy cruise setting, the range can be stretched as far as 2,500 nm, said Lancair’s director of business development Kevin Eldredge. With more power, the airplane can cruise for 1,800 nm at 240 knots. The service ceiling for the piston Evo is 25,000 feet. The Evolution is pressurized and air-conditioned.
