Southern Air is a builder assistance facility in Northeast Louisiana specializing in Glasair kits.

While at Stoddard, Lanny also contributed in the areas of  fiberglass parts quality control, builder assistance, and helping with the writing of the II-S and slotted flap assembly manuals. In the past ten years, Southern Air has built all models of Glasair, the Glastar, Giles G-200, Lancair Super ES, Lightning Bug, Cirrus VK-30 with an Allison 250, Stoudacher S-300, Kit Fox and Turbine Legend.
