    I've trained people for their instrument rating in the Lancair ES and Lancair/Columbia/Cessna 300/350/400 series aircraft.  The 300 is the original production version, and does not incorporate the glass panel cockpit found in later versions, which may be fine with someone coming out of a 200 Arrow, but not so much for someone looking for a more 21st cen...
