The Ryan S-C (Sports-Coupe) was an American three-seat cabin monoplane designed and built by Ryan; one was impressed into service with the United States Army Air Force as the L-10.


Designed as an up-market version of the Ryan S-T trainer, the S-C was a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a fixed tailwheel landing gear. The prototype first flew in 1937 and had a nose-mounted 150 hp (112 kW) Menasco inline piston engine. Production aircraft were fitted with a 145 hp (108 kW) Warner Super Scarab radial engine.

One example was impressed into service with the United States Army Air Force and was designated the L-10. Four examples were still flying in the United States at the start of the 21st Century.
