There Is A New Ranger In Town – Vashon Ranger R7
Vashon Aircraft is the newest aircraft manufacturer in the aviation center of Seattle, Washington, where they design and build the US-made Ranger R7 aircraft. Vashon Aircraft was founded by John Torode, and the Ranger R7 was designed by noted Pacific Northwest aeronautical engineer Ken Krueger.
Affordable, American, Rugged, Refined and Equipped. With the Ranger R7, pilots can choose all of the above: the compromises end now. The Ranger is a two-seat aircraft perfect for “$39 burgers” ($100 burgers are way too expensive), meeting up with other pilots at fly-ins, and Saturday morning breakfasts. Starting at only $99,500, every Ranger features a Continental O-200-D engine, a complete Dynon SkyView avionics suite including autopilot, and more.
The Ranger R7 is an affordable combination of great airplane flight characteristics, unsurpassed visibility, roominess, and fun for both local sightseeing flights and cross-countries to Oshkosh.
John Torode, founder and CEO of Vashon Aircraft, says “I started Dynon to bring affordable, advanced technology to the aviation community, yet there still remains a need to innovate beyond the panel to bring affordable flight to more people. With Vashon Aircraft, I hope to empower the next generation of pilots with the tools they need to take to the skies.”
