Vashon Aircraft is the newest aircraft manufacturer in the aviation center of Seattle, Washington, designing and manufacturing the US-made Ranger R7 aircraft.

Recognizing that flying is increasingly becoming out of reach for the next generation of pilots, John Torode founded Vashon Aircraft in 2012 to disrupt the aviation status quo. The Ranger R7 is Affordable, American, Rugged, Refined and Equipped. There’s no need to choose.

Still skeptical? John Torode – Vashon’s founder and CEO, is the same serial-entrepreneur behind Dynon Avionics. With a senior leadership team that includes experienced aviation entrepreneurs and innovators, Vashon is ready to disrupt aviation and make modern, safe, and affordable flight available to anyone who wants to go fly.

An American Airplane, From An American Company.

The Ranger R7 is designed and manufactured at the Vashon Aircraft factory headquarters near Seattle, Washington, and is assembled at its Paine Field assembly and delivery center (just down the taxi-way from the Boeing wide body plant.) The avionics are made by Dynon Avionics in Woodinville, Washington, and the engine by Continental, Mobile, Alabama.
