WAY cool!

I mean seriously!

If you ever decide to head back down the mountain chain towards Knoxville, my Sky Arrow is at Copperhill, TN, just a few miles south. Love to trade rides. Not sure if you'd be comfortable flying into my Lenoir City property - though flying out might me more of an issue!

Have fun and fly safe!

Now that you are one, you should definitely join the Ercoupe Owners Club. One of the benefits is a listing on the Members section on the website, of approved Ercoupe instructors (I'm one of those) and mechanics (I'm not). Fly it up to Lock Haven sometime - maybe for our big Sentimental Journey fly-in next month.

Nice! Congrats and enjoy, I love mine! The EOC is good idea to join, but probably more important is the Ercoupe-tech group at yahoo. That email list is good stuff for a coupe owner.

Oh, and be sure to get a couple of hours of extra transition training from a Coupe-savvy CFI. It's not an FAA requirement (beyond the flight review), but these planes are different from the Cherokee you used to fly. Welcome back!

Sentimental Journey to Cub Haven runs from 20 to 24 June 2017, Mark. I look forward to seeing you here at Piper Memorial Airport.

Awesome! You might consider the 2017 Ercoupe Convention, it is in Dickson, TN this year (M02).
