The S-20 Represents An Amalgam Of All The Best RANS Birds At the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo 2014, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell had a chance to talk about and fly the new RANS S-20 Raven. The Raven was on display at the Expo and it’s an airplane you just couldn’t walk by without stopping to look. Randy Schlitter, the owner of RANS Designs, explains the rationale behind an airplane that looks like a classic but has the modern features you would want in a new light sport aircraft. Schlitter said the design started by combining the best of the RANS Coyote and the RANS Courier, but they ended up with a design that stands on its own.
