American Legend Aircraft Co. has introduced the Super Legend, an addition to the Legend Cub two-place sport aircraft lineup. The Super Legend sports the Lycoming 233 Series lightweight engine, as well as other performance enhancements, according to company officials.
Features include a Super Cub-style pressure cowling and classic Super Cub paint scheme, while custom paint options are also available, officials said. In addition, the Super Legend boasts the same power-to-weight ratio as 150-hp Super Cub (base weight will be around 845 lbs.). The Super Legend comes equipped with Super Cub-style flaps, a 32-gallon fuel system with Left/Right/Both selector switch, and balanced tail feathers. Instrument panel choices include basic Low and Slow (LS), Cross Country with Night VFR (XC), and the Legend Smart Cub panel (SC).
Other enhancements include lightweight carbon fiber components such as cowling, doors, interior panels, spinner, and wingtip bows. A parking brake system, fuel access steps on the landing gear, and a body-conforming adjustable seat are also standard. Toe brakes are available as an option. Other features, introduced by American Legend and standard on the Super Legend, include a 3-inch wider cabin, standard double doors, and the ability to solo from the front or rear seat. Landing options include tundra tires, floats, and skis.
The Super Legend can be ordered now at a $139,900 introductory price. A 20% down payment is required to secure a production slot. Certification of the Lycoming 233 Series LSA engine is expected in the third quarter. Certification flight testing and load testing of the Super Legend is planned for the fourth quarter, with deliveries following early next year. The company plans to have a prototype at this summer’s Oshkosh, officials note.
