“The world’s safest plane” – BRsim Designs releases the ERCO Ercoupe 415C for MSFS

BRsim Designs is back with a brand new airplane for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After the Bonanza H35 V-tail, Debonair 35, and EMB200 Ipanema, Bruno Reichert has now released what was once claimed to be the world’s safest plane: the ERCO Ercoupe 415C.

The Ercoupe is an old American monoplane. It was designed during the 1930s, but only entered the commercial market after World War II, where it saw quick success with more than 4.300 units produced in 1946 alone.

The Ercoupe was marketed at the time as “The World’s Safest Plane”, due to its limited stall and spin characteristics. It was actually the first aircraft certified as “unable to spin” by the Civil Aeronautics Administration. Another unique feature of this airplane is the lack of rudder pedals: only the control wheel was used to fly the Ercoupe.

BRsim Designs is now bringing the Ercoupe to MSFS with another good-looking model, similarly to the developer’s previous releases. The Ercoupe saw plenty of different versions and configurations, but BRsim has recreated a post-WWII model with a 75hp Continental C75 engine.
