First Glass Cockpits, And Now... A Six-Cylinder Cub!
Aircraft Company told Aero-News Wednesday that an optional Jabiru
120-horsepower engine is now available in the company's Legend Cub
The newly announced Jabiru engine option offers Legend Cub
owners numerous performance advantages. For one, the Jabiru 3300A
Aero Engine (right) is a six-cylinder workhorse, featuring a
lightweight aluminum block that offers high time between overhaul,
affordable parts, and low maintenance costs.
When coupled with the Legend Cub, American Legend says the
Jabiru engine provides a lower fuel burn, as well as smoother,
quieter operation. The fact it also has extra 20
horses over the standard Continental O-200 is merely a bonus...
"I was a fan of the Jabiru engine about a year ago when I put my
deposit down on a Legend Cub," said Gerald Ward, who is slated to
receive the first production Jabiru-equipped Legend Cub. "I was
willing to take a back seat to get this motor and gave up my early
delivery position. Now that my Legend Cub is nearing completion I'm
very excited about the trip to Texas to take delivery."
"I've flown a friend's J-3 Cub, but wasn't too keen about having
to take the back seat then. With my new Legend Cub, the option of
flying solo from the front seat is especially appealing," Ward
Jabiru has been producing engines in Australia for more than 14
The American Legend Cub is two-place design derived from the
classic Cub. A variety of options are available including choice of
interior, avionics, wheels, floats, lighting, propellers, and
