LANCAIR BROADENS SALES STAFF

Monday, February 8, 2010: Lancair International has reorganized and broadened its sales staff, assigning geographical territories to three sales representatives.
According to Doug Meyer, Director of Marketing and Sales for Lancair, “This is a very knowledgeable and experienced sales group with a diverse background in certified and kit-built aircraft that can work with a customer who has never been involved with building his or her own aircraft, guide them seamlessly through the acquisition and building process, and into the air in minimum time.”
Doug Walker, based in Cincinnati, OH, joins the company to handle Lancair sales for all U.S. states east of the Mississippi River, plus Minnesota, Iowa and Eastern Canada. Walker, formerly an independent dealer for Lancair Certified, Columbia Aircraft, and subsequently a Corvallis Product Specialist with Cessna Aircraft, is no stranger to the high performance single engine market and was a top producer since joining Lancair Certified in 2001. Representing the exciting Evolution brings Doug to the pinnacle of performance in the market segment. Says Walker, “The Evolution is an amazing aircraft, it’s exciting to fly and brings to the single engine pilot a level of performance and utility that I’ve never experienced anywhere, including the certified aircraft segment.” Doug intends to begin construction of his personal Evolution very soon.
Neal Longwill, formerly based in Redmond with the factory, has returned to Texas and formed Austin Composites to represent the Lancair Evolution and Legacy aircraft in the states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. Neal is well equipped to represent Lancair Owner-Built aircraft having built his own Lancair Legacy that he flies regularly. Neal hopes to begin construction of his Evolution demo later this year.
Chelsea Welch remains at the factory in Redmond, OR working regional sales and is responsible for the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Alaska and Western Canada. Chelsea is a sales professional and formerly a factory demo pilot for Cirrus.
Inquiries from areas other than those designated will be handled from the factory as needed.
