Looking for older copies of the Coupe Capers? Thanks to several members, notably Matt Gunsch and Jean and Scott Morgan, we've put older issues from in the Coupe Capers area under Files. You'll have to navigate to "Older" as we only display the last 5 years on the first page of the files area. Then, select the year and issue you want to see. Please note that these are VERY large files and may take some time to download. Unlike newer issues, they aren't searchable. Happy Reading!
We continue to add to this treasure trove. If you see something missing and know where we can get it, please let me know! (webmaster (at) ercoupe (dot) org)

Where in the world is Waldo?
OK, not Waldo, but those Coupes? a Google map has been created showing all the FAA and Canadian registered "Coupes" we could find. Go to this link: http://tinyurl.com/gnth3y2
There are multiple layers to the map:Coupes by Model (A2's and A-2A's combined) pinned on the map by city and state and Canadian coupes. Layers are shown by model number and can be turned off individually so see just 415-C's, etc. I’ve taken liberties with the FAA data and if it looked like a variant of the same thing, I changed it (for example, all ERCOUPE 415-C and 415-C are now called just 415-C). And, anything with ERCOUPE in the model is now an ERCO.
You can search by just about anything that you want: street address, name, model, make, etc.

Look in the forums under "For Sale" items.
We fly an airplane that was the peak of pre-World War II development. It took more than a decade and a half before the features of the Ercoupe were the norm in civil aviation. Yet the industry finally followed.
The members of the Ercoupe Owners Club provide each other mutual support as we keep these classic aircraft in the air. Along the way, we've found that Coupe people are a little bit special, themselves. Please browse our site and enjoy.
