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.

Dave Prizio has been plying the skies of the L.A. basin and beyond since 1973. 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 was a member of the EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Council for six years.
