Jim Kimball Enterprises McCullocoupe

mccullocoupe


Late in 2000, a 'doodle' of what an M14P powered clipwingish airplane would or could look like was made. It does resemble the Monocoupe 110 Special and Jim Younkin's Mullicoupes, but it is a design all its own specifically for the M14P series engine! The McCullocoupe was named by Jim Kimball.

The airplane is slightly larger than a 110 special with a cabin wide enough for 2 people rather than only 1 1/2 people. The wing is 2 piece rather than one and is fully ply sheeted and incorporates Curtis Pitts' aerodynamically boosted aileron technology. Tail sizing is improved over the 110 special.

The M14PF engine is 400hp with MT making a special 3 bladed prop for the McCullocoupe that will be optimized for cruise while still having great acro performance. The landing gear is the same spring aluminum unit as used on the Pitts Model 12 hidden inside a large fairing. The firewall forward, including the cowling, are borrowed from the Pitts Model 12 as well.
