Or a Wilga?
I like the capabilities but not the esthetics...
I find Ercoupe's "cute" and I actually love the art deco aesthetics of the Sea Bee. Especially the shiny metal ones. The Wilga has a certain rugged, in your face machismo that I also appreciate. I guess I can find something to like about the appearance of all aircraft. I'm hopeless.
More planes need 3 engines and viewing bubbles on the empennage and rudder
There's plain ugly, and then there's so ugly it's truly interesting. I put the Wilga in the latter category.
Undamaged? Dunno...looks like the vertical stab is bent forward.
I like the little Ercoupe.. with care and feeding, one day it will grow into a mighty P-38.
Mooney PILOTS are known for prop strikes, it ain’t the plane’s fault.
Or a B-25. Or even (with lots of feeding) a B-24!
My issue with the Ercoupe ain't the looks. It is the lack of a rudder in most of them. As a taildragger guy, that just shakes me to my core.
Boy! Has this thread gone off track!
Actually, it really isn’t. At least it’s still SEL.
I haven’t flown our club Tiger since December. It’s almost a travesty. I like that aircraft more than the others by far. Although the new to the club Cherokee is nice.
That can happen over a 3 year period.
That can happen in a 3 post period...
Actually they all have rudders, just most don't need rudder pedals due to the coordinated controls.
