RANS CLAN forumsRANS CLAN HomepageAbout Us


In 2007 I created the RANS CLAN website because there was no central online community for RANS builders and flyers. As a two time RANS builder, I thought it was important to interact with a like minded community of RANS enthusiasts. So, in my spare time, I built and maintain this website. I am not an employee of RANS Designs and I am not paid by RANS.

Over the years the RANS CLAN has seen tremendous growth in the number of users (and in site content). This has led to greatly increased costs to build and publish this website. Aside from dollar costs, it also requires a huge amount of my personal time to maintain. This is time that I could be flying, hanging out with friends, or building a different online business.

I publish the RANS CLAN because I am passionate about it. There is no doubt that a lot of builders and pilots use this website and benefit from it. Like any business, my goal is to provide a top-notch product with outstanding value and service. For that effort, I hope to earn a return on my investment of time and money.
