American Legend Aircraft Co. has completed the first customer delivery of a Legend AmphibCub — an amphibious float-equipped Legend Cub certified as a Light Sport Aircraft. The AmphibCub was completed and delivered to Dick Parsons, a retired airline pilot who lives in South Florida.
Parsons is a long-time Legend Cub fan, according to company officials, who note he has flown over 700 hours in the Legend Cub.
The new AmphibCub by American Legend is based on a J3-style version of the Legend Cub. It is configured with amphibious aluminum floats from Baumann Floats of New Richmond, Wisconsin. The Amphibious Legend FloatCub is a certified LSA that meets the category’s seaplane requirements with a simple, repositionable landing gear.
Darin Hart, owner of American Legend Aircraft Co. and designer of the Legend AmphibCub, stated, “The new amphibious Legend Cub is a special configuration and we’ve worked hard to ensure it fulfills sport pilot needs.”
The AmphibCub comes with Baumann BF 1500A amphibious floats, Garmin avionics, vortex generators, position/strobe lighting, and a lightweight finish system. Empty weight is 998 lbs.; useful load is 432 lb. The Amphibious Legend FloatCub sells for $159,000.
