American Legend Intro's Classic J3 Certified S-LSA
American Legend Aircraft is
introducing the Classic J3. This 'new' aircraft is based on the
Legend Cub incorporating numerous safety improving and "slimming"
features. It will be S-LSA certified. The Classic J3 will be priced
at $94,895.00 complete and ready to fly.
The new Classic J3 by American Legend will appeal to a broad
customer base. The Classic J3 is configured with a single clamshell
door/window combination for right-hand entry and exit-similar to
the Piper J3. Plus, it will feature a sliding window on the left
hand side-much like the Piper Super Cub. The Classic J3 is
available in a single configuration, however with numerous standard
features, including: a 100-horsepower Continental O-200 engine,
Sensenich wood propeller, all-metal cowling with exposed cylinders,
25-hour+ battery with starter, 16-gallon fuel system, disk brakes,
die-spring gear, shoulder harnesses at both seats, and more.
Additionally, the instrument panel of the Classic J3 will closely
resemble that of the Piper J3. Engine instruments include oil
pressure/temperature and tachometer, while flight instruments
include altimeter, airspeed, and inclinometer. The Classic J3
retains the Legend Cub's 3-inch wider cabin, aft bench seat, and
large baggage compartment. When compared to a fully restored Piper
J3, the Classic J3 by American Legend excels in terms of comfort,
convenience, and safety, and is competitively priced.
Darin Hart, owner of American Legend Aircraft Company, stated,
"The new Classic J3 sprung from many conversations with current
Legend Cub owners. They have repeatedly told us why they chose the
Legend Cub. It offered a truly modern aircraft that had the same
flying characteristics of the classic Piper. They also convinced us
that there are additional buyers out these who would jump on the
opportunity for a slimmed-down, brand new Cub." Hart continued,
"The Classic J3 is priced less than most new S-LSA aircraft.
However, customers will be getting a hand-crafted,
American-manufactured airplane that is without comparison in the
Sport Pilot and recreational flying category."
The Classic J3 will be available in a color choice of yellow
with black lightning bolt, or white with red or blue striping. A
brief list of available options includes a radio installation, a
choice of battery charging systems, air/oil separator, oil
quick-drain, chrome valve covers, and a brass leading edge
