Sauzeau ERES-II Coquin

09/30/2014. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The ERES-II Coquin (Rascal) was an original design parasol-wing single-seat homebuilt aircraft of Robert Sauzeau of Couhé Vérac, France. Of wood and fabric construction, it had a 48-50 hp VW1600 engine. Sauzeau commenced construction of the aircraft (sometimes also referred to as ERES-2) in 1985 and the first flight was made on March 13, 1987.

Initially the aircraft was registered F-WYTB, after it received its CofA, it was reregistered as F-PYTB on August 10, 1989. The type was not intended for amateur construction and the one-of-a-kind design had been constructed making use of a maximum of materials available in the automotive branch. It was damaged in an accident in May 1995, but re-flown after a rebuild. On July 26, 2000, the aircraft was sold to Patrick Lemaner of Pas de Jeu, the registration is still current."
