In 1991, the pilot came in too slow on a short final, stalled, and nosed-over. Properly repaired and returned to service.

Ercoupes that qualify for the Light Sport License are getting very hard to find.
Call me now to discuss.

The Ercoupe (E and R coming from the company's name: Engineering and Research Corporation) was one of the most unusual-and controversial-light airplanes ever built. It was designed by Fred E. Weick, one of aviation's foremost engineers, who decided to solve with one bold stroke the biggest single cause of aviation fatalities: the stall, followed by spin, at altitudes too low to permit recovery. The Ercoupe was designed to be stall-proof and spin-proof.

The Ercoupe was noticeably faster than its contemporaries and quite comfortable and easy to fly. One nice touch was that the cockpit canopy could be opened in flight, producing much the same sensation as driving a convertible with the top down. It was a nice looking, aluminum fuselage with cloth wings, and it was true that it would neither stall nor spin. The major thrust of the sales effort was "anyone can fly," and cases without end were cited in which pilots who had never had a previous lesson soloed in three hours, or two, or even one. As some owners began to metalize the wings, the factory did produce some later models with metal wings.
