The RANS S-6S Super Coyotte is a two seat, high wing, tricycle or conventional landing gear ultralight aircraft developed and produced by RANS Inc. in the USA. Rans Inc. was founded by Randy Schlitter in 1974 and started with the development of sailtrikes. In 1983, Rans Inc. started with the production of aircraft and has delivered over 4500 UL-aeroplanes complete or as a building package since. Today, Rans Aircraft designs and builds UL-aeroplanes and light-sport-aircraft. The original single seat S-4 Coyote was designed by Randy Schlitter in 1982. Construction of the first Coyote prototype was started in November 1982, with the first flight following in March 1983. A further development of the the S-4 was the S-5 Coyote. The S-6 Coyote II two-seater was developed from the S-5 Coyote. The production-prototype of the Rans S-6 Coyote II flew first in November 1988. In April 1990, the Rans S-6ES went into production. The 'ES' indicates that it is the second generation of the original S-6 design, thanks to a fuselage redesign which resulted in an Extended Span, giving improved performance and appearance. The standard engine of the Rans S-6S is the Rotax 503; 582; 912 or 912S. There are tricycle and taildragger undercarriage versions. Several variations of wing have been produced for the different markets, including one tapered design. The two-seat Rans S-6S Super Coyote joined the S-6ES Coyote II in production in 1993. More than 2100 Rans S-6 Coyote II Series kits have been delivered to customers all over the world.

On 27 August 2001, Rans S-6S Super Coyote s/n 02001359S was registered PH-3N1 in the Netherlands. The 2001-built Rans S-6S Super Coyote PH-3N1 is equipped with a Subaru EA-81 engine. The Ultralight aircraft was seen at the former MLA-airfield at the Maasvlakte near Rotterdam in the Netherlands. This airfield was owned and operated by the Stichting Rijnmond Ultra Light Maasvlakte.
