The Rans S-10 Sakota aircraft was developed by American aircraft manufacturers exclusively for the US market, while, as a basis, specialists from the company "Rans Inc." used the base of the Rans S-9 Chaos model, however, and the design and technical characteristics of the aircraft were optimized in such a way that the aircraft became more popular than the single-seat version, although multi-purpose in this model could not manifest itself.

The design of the aircraft Rans S-10 Sakota is very compact, which in turn will make this aircraft very manoeuvrable and high, even despite the fact that is used in low-power propulsion. However, because of the compact size of the aircraft, carrying on board any goods is not possible, in particular, it is not limited to the maximum payload, namely the lack of space in the cockpit.

Due to its relatively high flight-technical qualities, the plane is often positioned as a sporty vehicle, but, in reality, the aircraft Rans S-10 Sakota is intended solely for private use in a civil aircraft.

The cockpit Rans S-10 Sakota can accommodate up to two people at the same time, space is very much here is limited, which does not allow to carry on board the aircraft of various kinds of goods, although power characteristics provide this opportunity. However, on long plane flights Rans S-10 Sakota not calculated and the maximum range of its route is only about 550 kilometers, which is not always acceptable.

(Maximum airspeed). Starting from the second production cycle, the plane began to be equipped with more powerful propulsion system Rotax 912 ULS, which allows to develop traction in 100 hp, allowing high-speed characteristics of the aircraft greatly increased.
