Cox’s Sport Pilot Certificate is for an ERCO 415-C Ercoupe, which the Federal Aviation Administration classifies as a light-sport aircraft. In the 1940s, the Ercoupe was built without rudder pedals. Instead, the rudder is linked to the ailerons via the yoke. Because of the airplane’s unusual design, Cox can fly it with one foot on the yoke and the other on the throttle. In 2019, Cox received a 1946 Ercoupe 415-C with the tail number N26R.
