Ed Burkhead's
personal Coupe pages

with information I choose to publish
to support all those who fly the various models of
Ercoupes, Aircoupes and Mooney M-10s

Please note that my web pages have no
affiliation or relationship with the
Ercoupe Owners Club (other than a great deal of respect).
However, some material I've written is also posted on the
EOC site with my permission and some of my links below
take you to the EOC website (

Disclaimer: I have no professional or expert qualifications of any kind.
It's fully up to you to check any information you find here with
standard aviation industry sources such as aircraft maintenance
manuals, flying instruction books and, above all, FAA regulations!

These documents are a distillation I've made of information I've received in association with Coupes since buying my Coupe in January of 1979. This is the best information I have found based on my judgment as a complete amateur in aviation.

Type certificate Data Sheets:   

Aircraft Specification A-718 for 415-C and CD
Type Certificate Data Sheet No. A-787 for 415-D and all later models

Skyport Ercoupe Services  first choice for Coupe parts and service IMHO
      (Note: I have no financial interest or association with Skyport
        I just think they've been the best source for parts, kits and support)
