    The Ryan S-C (Sports-Coupe) was an American three-seat cabin monoplane designed and built by the Ryan Aeronautical Company. It was a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a fixed tailwheel landing gear, designed to be an up-market version of the Ryan S-T trainer. The prototype first flew in 1937, and had a nose-mounted 150 hp (112 kW) Menasco inline piston engine but the production aircraft were fitted with a 145 hp (108 kW) Warner Super Scarab radial engine.

    With the company's involvement in producing trainer aircraft for the United States military, the S-C was not seriously marketed, and only 12 production aircraft were built. One example was impressed into service with the United States Army Air Forces, and was designated the L-10. At the start of the 21st Century, four examples were still airworthy in the United States.

      Nice little review, Felicity - you have captured the essence of what makes the Ryan tourer a great value-for-money add-on for FSX. I have owned this for a while now and consider it one of GAS's best products.
      Thanks.
