Texas Sport Aircraft Co. introduced the Texas Sport at this year’s Sun ‘n Fun.
The factory-new aircraft kit intended for amateur builders is from the same people behind American Legend Cub.
The Texas Sport is similar in appearance to the Piper Cub utilizing a J-3 wing design, PA-11 struts, and outboard wing attachments like the PA-18 Super Cub, according to company officials. Like the Legend Cub, the airframe features a 3-inch wider cockpit, providing a noticeably larger cabin. Additionally, fuel is stored in the wings allowing for solo flight from the forward seat. The Texas Sport can be built with your choice of PA-11 style closed cowl or J-3 style “eyebrows.”
Builders can certify to a gross weight of 1,320 pounds, and then pilot their Texas Sport under the new Sport Pilot regulations. Or, the Texas Sport can be certified with a higher gross weight of 1,600 pounds.
Base price of the Texas Sport aircraft kit is $37,600 with additional options, including engine, interior, avionics, paint and more. Texas Sport Aircraft Co. also offers a 21-day “KwikBild” program.
