Ercoupe 415c (Detail) — Connecticut
The Ercoupe was billed as the worlds safest plane when it was introduced in the 1940s. It was stall-resistant and spin-proof and the controls were interconnected. There were no rudder pedals, just a wheel and throttle to use in controlling the airplane. Unfortunately, the air safety record for the Ercoupe does not bear out the manufactures claims. In reality, the Ercoupe has the worse safety/crash record for any contemporary two-seat aircraft.
