Ron Miller’s Notice to Lancair IV Pilots

I do transition training, recurrency, first flight, insurance required times, and flight reviews. This goes for all planes. The Lancair 4 is a great plane and easy to fly, it has a lot of things to it since it is very complex but flying the plane is really simple. I have not had a customer that has had any problems yet that I have tough in a 4 or 4P but you do need to learn those planes because they are differnt than your normal Cessna. Many people worry about the high speed in which they come in at but keep it is mind that speed is its friend. The way I look at it if you cannot drive a car on a perfect road at 120mph then you might not want a Lancair.  When it comes to a windy day I think the lancair is a great plane to be in compaired to say a Cessna which the wind will control much more. The only problem I see with the 4s is who built it and what equipment was installed, I see more problems with this plane than any othes when it comes to mechanical or electric problems.

Also, if you have a Lancair 360 and are having issues with landings, please contact me at . I know some instructors have been teaching 90 MPH approach speeds, and that is NOT the correct way to land a Lancair 360.
