The Granbury High school Aerospace Engineering students recently finished building a Rans S-21 aircraft. 

Aviation teacher Mark Kirk commented, "the students completed the project with the assistance of the best group of adult volunteers any high school program could ever ask for."

Once finished, the airplane received its airworthiness certificate from the FAA inspectors.  Pictured below is aviation student Cameron Moore, aviation teacher Mark Kirk, volunteer mentors, and FAA inspectors during the airplane inspection. 

"We’re thankful for the support of RANS Aircraft, Stein Air, and the Granbury mentors who have dedicated so much of their time and wisdom to this program," commented Mr. Kirk.
