Rans S7 Courier

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Any S7 owners/operators out there? I’m looking for a tandem backcountry LSA without spending a fortune, and there’s a nice looking example on Barnstormers.

Check out the Zlin Savage Norden. It’s an unbelievable 21st century STOL design. Base price with a 912 ULS is around $116K.

That looks really nice, plus it's a factory built SLSA that's been recertificated as experimental. Dynon panel, ADS-B In/Out, and autopilot. The price is pretty reasonable for what you get. I've been a fan of Schlitter's designs (both bicycles and airplanes) for years.

That’s an amazing machine! 15 mph controlled flight with full flaps and slats.

Considering how well equipped it is, it looks like a good deal. It also looks well looked after.

It sure is! The Norden’s wing is the tour de force of STOL design. And everything is custom designed too from the slats to the double slotted flaps and carbon drooped tips.

Check out at 40 seconds to see the maneuverability. https://www.facebook.com/20748807938564 ... /?vh=e&d=n

I agree! Now you can see those slats extending and retracting at 3:04 in glorious 4K resolution. https://youtu.be/AGwBuaXinvg
