The Erco 415 Ercoupe was designed by several engineers at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) in response to a Bureau of Air Commerce design competition during the mid 1930s for an easy-to-fly, safe airplane. The Engineering and Reseach Company (ERCO) was founded to develop the design. The 415 utilized a two-control system with a control wheel linking the rudder, ailerons and nose wheel. The wheel also controlled the elevator. This arrangement eliminated the need for rudder pedals. The first production Ercoupe was manufactured in 1939. Several companies built nearly 6, 000 Ercoupes or their variants over a period of almost 30 years. In 1941, the U. S. Army evaluated the Ercoupe under the designation YO-55 for observation and target drone roles. Show less...
