good choice. The Ercoupe is an excellent starter and in my case, finisher aircraft. I bought and learned in an Ercoupe in 1964 and after 13 different aircraft I am now back in the "coupe" (N919BJ) When u start looking at coupes try and find one with rudder cables . Good to have rudder experience as you move on to different birds. Check with me when you are ready to buy, I may be ready to sell mine. I am 78 and figure to hang it up in the next year or so. My bird is fully IFR certified with 30 gal wing tanks , no header tank.
Call me if you have questions

Thanks!

I have not yet had a flight in one, but I was able to sit in a coupe at Oshkosh. I was there from Thursday to Saturday and tried to hunt down as many as I could (3 or 4 I think).

Jon,

First, welcome to the world of Ercoupes. Second, have you had the chance to fly in an Ercoupe?

Did you get to see all of the Ercoupes at Oshkosh? I think there was 7 or 8 there this year. I was there till Wednesday so Maybe more came in.

Hello all,

I just joined the group and wanted to introduce myself. I’m a student pilot in Columbus OH and just discovered (more like fell in love with) the Ercoupe this year at Oshkosh. Naturally as I finish up my PPL I’m looking to acquire my own. I’ll be diligently learning all I can about them but if anyone would be so kind as to provide any tips or advice it would be extremely appreciated.

Cheers
Jon
