American Legend Names Three To Advisory Board

American Legend Aircraft has named three key persons to the company's advisory board. These appointments include Clyde Smith Jr., notable Cub historian and restoration expert; Danny Goggins, company test pilot; and Rich Giannotti, first Legend Cub customer.

Clyde Smith Jr. is duly known in aviation circles as The Cub Doctor. A long list of credentials has garnered Clyde Smith Jr. this title. He presently serves as an advisor and author for the Cub Club (www.cubclub.org). He regularly performs seminars on aircraft restoration. He is a former Piper employee, and his father Clyde R. Smith Sr. was Chief Experimental Test Pilot for Piper. The pairing of Clyde Smith Jr. and American Legend Aircraft Company is a remarkable blend of experience and enthusiasm for the Cub flying experience.

A self-proclaimed Cub enthusiast and superb Cub pilot, Danny Goggins joins the Legend board. He is a commercial rated pilot currently flying with America West Airlines. In addition, Goggins has served as American Legend's test pilot since the company completed and flew its first prototype (nearly one year ago) on March 11, 2005.

Also appointed to the company advisory board was American Legend's first customer Rich Giannotti. A high time pilot, Giannotti holds a variety of ratings including certified flight instructor. He took delivery of his Legend Cub in August 2005, and has been an avid supporter and valuable contributor to the company since.

Tim Elliott, president of American Legend Aircraft Company, commented on the appointments, "We are without a doubt pleased to have these three gentlemen join our company advisory board. The wealth of knowledge that Clyde Smith Jr. can share with us is immeasurable. Danny will continue to play an important role as Legend continues to grow and deliver more planes. Rich has been huge in helping to launch the Legend Cub. The involvement of our board members ensures that Legend customers get the greatest satisfaction from ownership of their Legend Cub."

The Legend Cub is a two-place, single engine piston-powered aircraft designed to meet Light-Sport Aircraft certification requirements. It has an empty weight of 870 lbs. The Legend Cub is propelled by a 100-horsepower Continental O-200 engine with electric start. Equipped with optional floats, the aircraft is capable of water takeoffs and landings. The Legend Cub is bringing back the enjoyment and economics of general aviation aircraft to today's flying enthusiasts.
