OVERVIEW


 

The S-20 is the best of two great planes that have been in production at RANS since the 80's. We created a new fuselage and 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. Flight testing shows a faster cruise and lower in stall by a couple of knots. The clean aerodynamics of the engine cooling system and less wetted area of the fuselage are the reason for increased performance. Even the glide ratio has improved, at a solid 9.4 to 1.

Handling is crisp with light controls that are well balanced. Flying a slow approach into a short mountain strip will present little challenge. Equipped with large bush tires and VG's will increase the Ravens back country utility.

Handcrafted in Kansas and made of top quality materials, the Raven is made to last, simple to perform maintenance, and economical to operate with the Rotax 912ULS 100 HP. This is the base engine, and other options are soon to follow for even more exciting performance.
