Rick Atkins of Ragtime Aero in Placerville, CA has been making the first post-restoration flights in his Monocoupe 110 Special. Rick had this to say:

I got the Monocoupe project from Elden Iler in southern Ca. Dan McNeil helped me load it in to a rental truck and he drove it back for me and helped with the rib stitching. He has helped me a lot with this project and many others. The engine a 185 Warner was done by my friend Al Holloway at Holloway Engineering, and it's running great.

The Monocoupe was about a 6 year project working on it in my spare time in between my shop projects here at Ragtime. I have about 2.5 hrs in it and 9 or 10 landings in it. I am not in love yet but at the holding hands part of the relationship with the Coupe.
