My dear friend is losing ability in his legs. He says he is in a wheelchair most of the time. He misses flying. An Ercoupe was suggested as I heard that they do not have rudder pedals. If this is the case, how do you control the rudder? How about braking? Is the footwell completely open? It sounds like it might be just thing thing for my friend. I do not know anything about these planes and I am afraid it might be too good to be true. I would love to hear more about Ercoupes and if there are any other planes that would have legroom and no rudder pedals. Thank you!
