RANS S-20 Raven

Aircraft Specifications

Aircraft Description

The S-20 is the best of two great planes that have been in production at RANS since the 80's. We took the wings, tail, fuel system, and aero servo ailerons from the S-7S Courier, and engine system, control sticks, flap lever, rudder pedals, seats, and instrument panel from the Coyote II S-6S. The intent was to answer the many requests for a side by side bush plane, equal to or beyond the Courier.

Construction is straight forward and classic. The proven wing features our special 3" and 2" custom extruded spars, airfoil struts, and stamped aluminum ribs. All welded 4130 steel fuselage and tail complete the fuselage.

Design features that will make the plane an easy project include: Welded steel fuselage and tail (all welding is completed at the factory) CNC drilled spars that eliminate almost all critical drilling and locating of holes. One-piece stamped ribs are punched with final hole sizes, and many parts are anodized eliminating the need to prime or corrosion proof. The kits are very detailed and supplied with all critical components. Builders only need to supply, engine, prop, paint, avionics, and fluids.
