Legend Aircraft expanding

Construction is underway at American Legend Aircraft Co. in Sulphur Springs, Texas, to house the company’s expanding business.

Based at Sulphur Springs Municipal Airport (KSLR), American Legend is building a 20,000-square-foot hangar to house manufacturing, assembly, and research and development functions. Also in the works is a 5,000-square-foot hangar for sales and marketing.

The company, which already has 21,000 square feet of hangar space, manufactures the Legend Cub, a Light Sport Aircraft design that is a refinement of Piper’s J-3 Cub.

The expansion is necessary to keep up with the demand for the Legend Cub, according to company officials. Production capacity is expected to increase from the current four aircraft a month to eight aircraft a month once the new facilities are complete.

The company, which employs 40 people now, also plans to increase staff.
