Sherwood Ranger


The Sherwood Ranger is a lightweight two seat open cockpit biplane, designed to reduce the cost of owning and operating your own aeroplane to the absolute minimum. One of its major features is that the wings can be folded and the aeroplane loaded onto a trailer in less than three minutes, thus eliminating hangarage costs by allowing the aeroplane to be stored at home. The performance and handling characteristics allow safe operation from unprepared grass fields as short as 250yds.

The Ranger XP was first flown in 1991, and the LW in 1994.

TCD Ltd, UK, markets kits for the Sherwood Ranger ST single- or tandem two-seat biplane.
