Mother Of ALL Cubs Proclaimed!

Legend Cub Evolves to the Extreme with MOAC

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the expert hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. A Catto fixed pitch, Whirlwind ground adjustable, and Hartzell constant speed are among the many propeller options.

From 2017: A new addition to the Aero-TV lineup is the result of a partnership between Aero-News and the Academy of Model Aeronautics…

NTSB Factual Report: Glasflugel MOSQUITO

Due To Long Grass Blocking His Field Of View, The Pilot Was Unable To Maintain Directional Control

The glider pilot reported diverting from his original destination due to a weakening of soaring updraft conditions. While on short final to the divert airport that he had landed at on previous occasions, the pilot noticed the turf runway had not been mowed recently. During the landing rollout, due to long grass blocking his field of view, the pilot was unable to maintain directional control and the glider impacted a fence to the left of the runway, damaging the left wing and fuselage. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the glider that would have precluded normal operation. The divert airport was private and required prior approval for landing.
