RANS S-20 is Sprightly with a Titan 340 Engine

RANS S-0 Raven

The popular RANS S-20 came to Sun 'n Fun this year with a new engine, the Titan 340, which makes 180 hp. The S-20 with a Rotax 912 was never known for being light on power, so you can imagine how it jumps off the ground with all that extra thrust. Climbs are spectacular.

This particular S-20 has the all-metal wings off the new S-21, which improves speed but adds about 20 pounds.

The standard S-20 kit is available for $27,500, plus firewall forward. A quick build option is available that can get claimed build time down to less than 300 hours.

Born into a family of builders, it was only natural that he would make his living as a contractor and spend his leisure time building airplanes. He has so far completed three—a GlaStar, a Glasair Sportsman, and a Texas Sport Cub—and is helping a friend build an RV-8. When he isn’t building something, he shares his love of aviation with others by flying Young Eagles or volunteering as an EAA Technical Counselor. He is also an A&P mechanic, Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR), and a member of the EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Council.
