    Ryan ST-A Parts / Technical Drawings

    Where can I find a set of drawings for a Ryan ST-A?
    I've looked high and low and haven't been successful in finding any.

    Somebody has built a replica so maybe you can track them down and/or research how they did it. I would call the EAA publications and get someone to search the back issues for Ryan STA replica.

    Without too much effort poking in the FAA registry, I found the plane N14910. Now registered to someone in the Ft. Worth, TX area.

    Yeah a true restoration. Nice to look at but not realistic as a regular flyer.

    The replica mentioned earlier was built in the late '90's, there was some magazine coverage. Much more practical, pretty sure it did not have a Menasco engine.

    Wouldn't a Gypsy Major work just as well?

    They are pretty close in size except the width.

    The Smithsonian's Archives often is a good resource. You do have to promise not to use the information to build a flyable plane though.
