OVERVIEW


 

The S-19 is a low wing monoplane of traditional aluminum construction, featuring a constant chord wing. This provides significant advantages in airframe construction and a good stall characteristic. The horizontal tail is a stabilator.

 

The S-19 is powered by a ROTAX 912 ULS engine producing 100 HP. The engine has proven itself reliable in years of operation. Other engine options will be explored, from Jabiru to Lycoming. The aircraft seats two in side by side in a 43.5" wide cockpit. Headroom is ample for even 6'4" pilots, and even larger with slight modifications.

 

The visibility over the nose is excellent due to the relative upright seat position. Baggage space is more than expected (enough space to carry two folding bikes!) Baggage can be carried in a 13 cubic foot compartment behind the seats with a loading capacity of 70lb. This already large compartment can be extended to the rear for approximate 9.5 cubic foot additional baggage space with a loading capacity of 30 lb.

 

The S-19 structure is of "monocoque" (stressed skin) carrying most of the strength through the aluminum skins. The skins are sufficiently supported with internal structure like bulkheads and stringers to maintain shape.

 

The airplane is built very sturdy and should provide a "lifetime" service with adequate maintenance.

 

High quality blind rivets are used throughout the construction of the airframe, with the exception of the spars, which come assembled with solid rivets. This eases the building process significantly, allowing mostly single person assembly. Blind rivets are an advanced form of construction popular among many designs of both higher and lower performance than the S-19. Significant reductions in build times are not only due to the choices in rivets, but the design itself is key into this aspect. The fit and finish of the parts allowing virtually jigless assembly, and many parts to final hole size accelerate and assure a high quality structure.

 

The S-19 may appear complicated, and high in part count, but we assure you the well machined components will assemble quickly, and with much lightness, due to the great care made in keeping things light. It is the real thing when it comes to a sheet metal plane, with little compromise to do it less than above standard. We are excited about what the S-19 represents, it is a sheet metal plane made with the famous RANS twist, a kit that you can build, even if you never held a pop-riveter before!

PRICING & ORDER FORM


 

 

TERMS OF PURCHASE


 

THESE TERMS OF PURCHASE REFER TO ALL RANS AIRCRAFT KIT PURCHASES.

 

DEPOSIT
A 50% deposit is required and 100% on Props & Engines, to confirm an order. This initial deposit can be made with a certified check, wire transfer, money order, company check or personal check.



 

FINAL PAYMENT
The balance of your payment is due prior to ship out. RANS will make every effort to contact you plenty of time in advance of the ship out date so that this final payment does not hold up your order. Final payment should be made with a certified check, money order, or a wire transfer.



 

SALES TAX
Sales tax is not added to shipments that are shipped out of the state of Kansas. Shipments within the state of Kansas will be charged sales tax at the rate of the delivery destination. For out of state customers picking up a kit at the factory, the customer must complete a notarized sales tax affidavit that defers sales tax to your state of residence.



 

ENGINES
With the purchase of a RANS kit, you are entitled to buy the Rotax engine directly from RANS. We do our best to keep the price as low as possible. The price will be our published price at the time of purchase.


The warranty period (6 months or first 100 hours whichever comes first) must begin within 1 year of delivery. For many home building projects this is not an adequate time frame to be finished and flying. And even for those folks who plan to finish in a short period of time, unexpected circumstances sometimes change these plans. Order your engine about 12-14 weeks before you will be ready to install it. Customer pays freight charges on all engine shipments, no matter if shipped with the kit or shipped separately later.



 

DELIVERY DATES
Depending upon production demands, delivery dates vary. Please inquire at the time of purchase about current delivery times. Kits (without any pre-built or quick build options) are usually shipped in 8-12 weeks. However, during high demand times this time can run longer. Quick build kit delivery times vary widely and are strictly dependent upon the number and extent of projects already on the schedule. An expected delivery date will be given at the time of order.

 

However, this is not a guarantee and is subject to change.



 

ORDER CHANGES
Our inventory and production emphasis are based on what is ordered. Therefore, it is difficult to change an order once confirmed. Custom made or ordered items cannot be changed without cost. (For example, changing the color scheme after the skins are already sewn.)



 

CANCELED PAYMENTS
Due to custom nature of our product, orders are transferrable, but cancellations are not allowed and will result in loss of deposit.



 

BACKORDERS
We make every effort to send out your order complete. However, experience has shown that this cannot always be the case. Many items we use are highly specialized and many are supplied by only one vendor. When a vendor without warning changes a lead-time from 3-4 weeks to 3-4 months it means we might not have this item in stock. We do send out backorders (not including engines, see #4) at our expense as quickly as we receive them. In some cases back orders are sent F.O.B.



 

MISSING PARTS
We check and re-check and are 99.9% certain that if we say we shipped it, we did. The first task in building your kit is to inventory the parts using the packing list provided. It's your job to keep all parts organized and accounted for upon receiving your kit. We can not provide ìmissingî parts cost free after 60 days.



 

PROPELLERS
Because we deal with several vendors of props (Warp Drive, and Sensenich), all propellers are considered special orders and cannot be returned or exchanged! Because of variations in engines, flying conditions, function of the RPM gauge, variations in the prop itself, and other numerous factors, performance can vary considerably. We will do our best to provide the information you need to order a prop that will do the best job. However, because of variations, we cannot guarantee performance.



 

RETURNED GOODS
A RANS kit aircraft is purchased as a complete kit. The only exceptions are kits sold less engine and less firewall forward. RANS will not accept for credit unused items from the original kit.



 

GUARANTEES
We cannot guarantee continued supply of any items outside scope of our manufacture. This includes, but is not limited to engines, props, instruments, and sensors for instrumentation, wheels, brakes, tires, and so forth.

 



This policy pertains to the purchase of the aircraft kit. Parts and options ordered later will be handled on an individual basis. Any part that is shipped that is incorrect will be exchanged free of charge. However, all returns must be authorized by our Parts Department.

 

RANS Designs, Inc. reserves the right to make changes in prices, specifications, or models, or add improvements at any time without notice or obligation.
