RANS S-19 VENTERRA
"The Pinnacle of Light Sport Aviation and beyond"
The S-19 Venterra...
is build around advanced ideas in design and manufacturing. Using CNC machining throughout, we have created a kit that made building a metal plane easy. Add to this a rugged trouble-free airframe and exceptional handling and performance, the Venterra is at the top of the light-sport plane experience and capable of performance well beyond. Many outstanding features like: sliding canopy, adjustable seating, fuel tanks in the wings, and more, confirm the S-19's status as a top-notch aircraft.
Considerable effort has gone into making this a sheet metal plane for the uninitiated; an excellent first time project, and a kit the pro can make into a champion wit embarrassing ease. This is accomplished not only by using precisely made components, finished to a high level , but using pull rivets, and providing may of the building fixtures in h kit. As a ready to fly plane, the refinement in the kit pays off in expert fit and finish.
In conjunction with control feel, the stability of the S-19 has a highly praised. It is yet another component of going beyond the standard to create a sport place to set the new standard. A large vertical fin tames adverse yaw, and the ample rudder allows even the novice to handle impressive cross winds. Responsive ailerons feature low breakout force, coordinated turns are natural, and feet are on the floor. Large flaps can reduce approach speeds and shorten rol-outs. A deep chord stabilator assures pitch stability, and altitude hold is "auto-pilot" impressive. Electrical trim is standard, working through the stabilator anti-servo tab.
