 What RARE Aircraft accomplished in the restoration of our 1937 Stinson Reliant SR-9F is nothing short of a miracle, made possible by Roy, Ben and Jeremy Redman’s unique tribal knowledge of Stinsons and intimate experience with Reliants as well as the entire RARE team’s rigorous attention to detail and impeccable craftsmanship. We showed up with a pile of parts and left with a world-class Reliant that is second to none.
 
Founded in 1991, RARE Aircraft Ltd is a family owned and operated aviation company dedicated to the restoration of Antique Aircraft.

The core of RARE Aircraft’s business is high quality award winning restorations. Their track record dates back to the “Four Time Grand Champ” Stinson Reliant of 1982 (Sport Aviation, November 1982). In fact, every restoration they've shown has won a national award.
