The Columbia 350 transformed its predecessor into an all-electric airplane, replacing gyro-driven systems with dual redundant electrical systems to power an all glass cockpit. Dual turbocharging was added in 2004, creating the Columbia 400.
There's no fooling Mother Nature. To go fast, you have to give up something — usually cabin size or parasitic drag. But when cruising in a Lancair Columbia 400 at speeds of more than 230 knots in a wide, comfortable cabin with the landing gear hanging in the breeze, it sure seems as if Lancair has at least bent the laws of aerodynamics if not broken them outright.
