I was PIC of light transport. Wind was light and variable. I called on unicom, 'psf traffic, light transport taxiing for departure runway 08.' no response. We taxied onto runway at midfield (no txwys). As we started westward, small aircraft called, 'small aircraft 4 mi final 26 at psf.' we continued and in transmitted, 'light transport at psf, we should be off well before your arrival.' small aircraft made some comment about being in departure path, I acknowledged. As we turned at end of runway for departure on 08, small aircraft reported 1 1/2 mi final and said, 'why don't you just hold at end and we'll land and clear midfield.' I said, 'negative, negative, we'll depart prior to you landing.' small aircraft appeared to deviate to right of inbound course runway 26. We departed, airborne by midfield, 30 degree bank angle, 45 degree angle bank to the right. Small aircraft continued and touched down after our arrival. Closest approach was 2500'. Small aircraft pilot did not break off approach, causing a dangerous conflict.

Title: CLOSE PROX CPR-LTT GA-SMA IN TRAFFIC AT PSF.
Narrative: I WAS PIC OF LTT. WIND WAS LIGHT AND VARIABLE. I CALLED ON UNICOM, 'PSF TFC, LTT TAXIING FOR DEP RWY 08.' NO RESPONSE. WE TAXIED ONTO RWY AT MIDFIELD (NO TXWYS). AS WE STARTED WESTWARD, SMA CALLED, 'SMA 4 MI FINAL 26 AT PSF.' WE CONTINUED AND IN XMITTED, 'LTT AT PSF, WE SHOULD BE OFF WELL BEFORE YOUR ARR.' SMA MADE SOME COMMENT ABOUT BEING IN DEP PATH, I ACKNOWLEDGED. AS WE TURNED AT END OF RWY FOR DEP ON 08, SMA RPTED 1 1/2 MI FINAL AND SAID, 'WHY DON'T YOU JUST HOLD AT END AND WE'LL LAND AND CLR MIDFIELD.' I SAID, 'NEGATIVE, NEGATIVE, WE'LL DEPART PRIOR TO YOU LNDG.' SMA APPEARED TO DEVIATE TO RIGHT OF INBND COURSE RWY 26. WE DEPARTED, AIRBORNE BY MIDFIELD, 30 DEG BANK ANGLE, 45 DEG ANGLE BANK TO THE RIGHT. SMA CONTINUED AND TOUCHED DOWN AFTER OUR ARR. CLOSEST APCH WAS 2500'. SMA PLT DID NOT BREAK OFF APCH, CAUSING A DANGEROUS CONFLICT.
