Well, I am happy to report that I was finally able to get a check ride to remove my rudder pedal(less) Ercoupe license limitation. An intrepid DPE in MD was willing to risk 4 or 5 landings with me with a few forward slips allowing me to demonstrate my rudder prowess. Log book endorsed, waiting for the paperwork to wind through the system to get my new plastic :D

Just one question. Was the DPE able to find a way to remove the restriction via IACRA, or was a paper application required?

In answer to Paul's question, the DPE understood he will have to submit the 8710-11 manually, and I paid accordingly - happily! I am enjoying a whole new re-birth in my flying enjoyment. Now if my daughter will just let me have the plane back -- :?
