American Legend Subisidiary Offers Pilots That Option
Texas Sport Aircraft Company told Aero-News Monday about the
introduction of the Texas Sport amateur-built aircraft. The Texas
Sport is a factory-new aircraft kit, intended for amateur builders,
in the spirit of the American Legend Cub and historic Piper J-3
Representatives with Texas Sport Aircraft tell ANN the Texas
Sport combines the most popular features of the J-3, PA-11, and
PA-18 designs... but offers some intriguing options, as well. For
one, builders can either certify their planes to a gross weight of
1320 pounds, and then pilot their Texas Sport under sport pilot
regulations... or, the Texas Sport can be certified with a higher
gross weight of 1600 pounds.
The Texas Sport is similar in appearance to the Piper Cub
utilizing a J-3 wing design, PA-11 struts, and outboard wing
attachments like the PA-18 Super Cub. The airframe features a
three-inch wider cockpit than the original, providing a noticeably
larger cabin. Additionally, fuel is stored in the wings... allowing
for solo flight from the forward seat.
The Texas Sport kit allows amateur builders to complete their
own aircraft with their choice of features and options, often at a
fraction of the cost of a production airplane.
American Legend will have a Texas Sport on display at next
week's Lakeland Fly-In, booth #MD-10.
