"The History of the Ercoupe and the Kansas Connection”
This month’s program will feature Mr. Ron Black presenting a program on the history of the famous Ercoupe. Ron has been flying his Ercoupe for many years and has been a member of the Ercoupe club. Did you know the Ercoupe was manufactures in Kansas.
Alon Inc. was founded by John Allen and Lee O. Higdon, two executives who had retired from aircraft manufacturer Beechcraft to found their own company. They had previously negotiated with Forney Aircraft to purchase production of the Ercoupe so that Beechcraft could use the design as an introductory trainer. The deal was canceled by Olive Ann Beech, who decided to concentrate resources on the Beechcraft Musketeer. This decision caused the executives to leave Beechcraft and establish Alon in McPherson, Kansas, which purchased the type certificate for the Ercoupe from the City of Carlsbad, New Mexico on March 16, 1964. Learn more about the Kansas connection as Ron presents the History of the Ercoupe.
