Pronunciation of "Lancair"

Recommended Posts

In my mind I've always pronounced the word "Lancair" in the name Lancair Legacy as:Lan - kayr'(Lan as in "pan" around the cockpit)However, last week I stopped by Avionics Systems in Leesburg, VA (the one that advertises in Sport Aviation), and a fellow in there pronounced it:Lan - sayr'Hmm. How's it go???Curious and grateful for your response(s),Kevin
