For the first time in the air plane model, Rans S-19 Venterra rose in June, 2007 years, however, due to some technical flaws, the plane became commercially produced only about one and a half years, which however, has made it quite popular - for the period from 2008 on 2014 years 36 aircrafts of this model were built, and, aircraft Rans S-19 Venterra still produced to this day.

The cabin of the aircraft has a very compact size, which is why on-board aircraft can accommodate only two people, and, the aircraft itself can not be used for the transportation of cargo by the designated reasons, although the actual maximum takeoff weight, and this helps. Thanks paired controls, aircraft Rans S-19 Venterra can also be used as the training aircraft, however, for several reasons, the aircraft for such purposes are generally not exploited.
