The Falconar AMF-S14 Maranda is a two-seat light aircraft first flown in Canada in 1961 and marketed for homebuilding. Based on the Adam RA-14 Loisirs, it is a conventional high-wing strut-braced monoplane with fixed, tailwheel undercarriage. The fuselage is wood construction with fabric covering with a folding wing. The pilot and single passenger sit side-by-side in a fully enclosed cabin. One example has been built as a floatplane with fiberglass covered wooden floats using Falconar plans. The airfoil employed is a NACA 23012.
Acceptable installed engine power ranges from 85 to 150 hp (63 to 112 kW).
