Innovative Wings Inc – Building Aircraft Dreams Since 1999!
Innovative Wings Inc. has been working with Lancair aircraft since 2001. In this time we have worked with most Lancair designs. Our experience includes both piston and turbine builds/conversions on pressurised and non-pressurised kits using fixed and retractable systems. Our facility is equipped to accept all current Lancair kits such as the Evolution and Legacy, but can also accommodate any existing kits such as the IV, IV-P(T), ES, ES-P 235 320 and 360.
Innovative Wings and Lancair Canada are now taking enquiries and orders for Evolution builds and builder assistance. For those looking for a complete product, Innovative Wings can arrange the purchase, assembly, testing and inspections of your new aircraft. For customers in the US who are subject to the 51% rule, Innovative Wings (based in Canada) has the ability to complete your build while meeting the requirements of US regulation. This 300kt PT-6 powered four-place is the epitome of kit-built high performance, get yours now!
If Lancair’s sporty two-seater is the aircraft of your dreams, Innovative Wings and Lancair Canada can get you into the air quickly! The Legacy kit is a favourite of many builders and for good reason. The choice of Lycoming or Continental engines provides ample, reliable power for this sleek airframe to hit 240kts and break the 1000nm barrier. This airframe looks BEAUTIFUL! With Lancair’s exceptional build quality and comprehensive kits, it’s not hard to see why so many aviators flock to this little pocket rocket.
Any turbine powered Lancair IV built in Canada has come through our shop. 3 out of the 4 Lancair IV’s currently in Canada are based out of our home airport and are modified and/or regularly serviced by our team. Duties include annual inspections to full one-off turbine conversions like our Garrett and Walter projects. The Garret project is good for over 320kts and is one of only 4 in the world! Also of note is our Lancair 320 Turbine conversion featuring an Allison 250.
Service and Customisation
Innovative Wings is a turbine specialist. We have conversion kits available for most Lancair models, utilising various turbine designs. However, if your goal is maximum performance using a piston design, we can help with the installation and/or upgrade of both Lycoming and Continental engines. Customised engine mounts, wiring looms and improved exhaust systems…we can do it all! We also offer service options for most engine types.
We love composites! Innovative Wings has full-time composite airframes specialists on staff to deal with any customisation or repair your Lancair could ever need. Some of the airframe services we offer include: aerofoil optimising, flap hinge flush-mounting, custom intakes, airframe strengthening and composite repair. During servicing, your airframe can be inspected, with any high stress areas being preventatively strengthened to stop hairline cracking before it happens.
Innovative Wings can offer fully customised avionics packages for any Lancair aircraft. Our in-house avionics department is experienced with major glass cockpit manufacturers such as Garmin, Dynon, EI and MGL. Traditional instruments can also be fitted as either primary or secondary systems. Certified and experimental equipment can be provided, with all wiring and fitting done by us personally.
Part of the joy of building your own aircraft is in making it truly yours. Innovative Wings can help with any personal touch or role-specific upgrade you require. Some of the upgrades we have added to customer Lancairs include: extended range tanks, pressurisation conversions, landing gear upgrades/redesigns and interior personalisation.
