The ERCO Ercoupe is a low wing monoplane first manufactured by the Engineering and Research Corporation (or ERCO) shortly before World War II. It was designed to be the safest fixed-wing aircraft that aerospace engineering could provide at the time, and the type still enjoys a very faithful following today.
Ercoupe Model 415-C is a single piston engine plane that entered production in 1940, known for its anti-spin technology. An alpha version debuted with FlightGear 1.9.0.
