Rans S6 Coyote II

A popular high-wing two-seat light aircraft available both in kit or completed form, the Rans S6 Coyote II first flew in 1988. The ES designation denotes extended-span wings. An example will be shown at RIAT 2014 by the Royal Aeronautical Society to showcase its Schools Build-a-Plane Challenge, which, in the programme's own words, 'aims to provide young people in UK secondary schools with the opportunity to build a real light aircraft from [a] kit and give them hands-on experience of the aircraft build process, understanding along the way the scientific and engineering principles behind flight, as well as developing commercial skills such as project management, problem-solving, team work and communication, with the ultimate aim of taking a flight in the aircraft once it is complete.'
