American Legend Aircraft Co. has completed structural testing of the Super Legend, a Lycoming-powered version of the Legend Cub. The airframe was successfully tested to load limits and will meet S-LSA certification, company officials report.
In development since 2011, the Super Legend airframe was designed to match to the higher performing Lycoming IO-233 engine, company officials explain.
Features include a flapped wing, balanced tail feathers, and new carbon fiber components.
Structural load testing of the Super Legend resulted in an airframe that fits within S-LSA limits of 1,320 lbs. GTOW. The same airframe will be available in a kit version and can be certified to 1,750 lbs. GTOW.
