The multipurpose aircraft of the Ryan SC model began to be developed by American aircraft manufacturers in 1934, while it was initially assumed that the aircraft would be intended exclusively for the military sphere, however, already at the design stage, a project was developed that allows operating the aircraft for a variety of purposes, in including for the transportation of people and cargo, as a sports and training aircraft. By their actions, American design engineers intended to increase the number of customers, however, even despite this fact, the Ryan SC aircraft was produced only in a small series - for the entire production period, only 13 aircraft of this model were built, of which only 4 copies have survived to this day. ...

The initiator of the beginning of the design process of the Ryan SC aircraft was the US Air Force, which invited the aircraft manufacturer to develop a qualitatively new aircraft that could be operated both as a combat aircraft and as a means of training future military pilots. However, the project was never able to justify its undertakings, and therefore, only one copy of this aircraft got into the US Air Force.
