Classic Aero-TV: The Legend Cub-‘Just a Little Bit Better than the Original Cub’

From 2015 (YouTube Version): Taking The Legendary Cub 'Metaphor' To New Heights!

During Sebring 2015, ANN News Editor, Tom Patton, stopped by the Legend Aircraft Company to talk about their line of Cub-similar aircraft. He was fortunate to link up with Darren Hart, who is the owner of the company.

Hart starts off by explaining their goal was to keep their aircraft easy to fly and similar to the original Piper Cub designs. They offer 3 models of aircraft, all of which qualify as an LSA.

While their line of Legend Cubs pays tribute to the original, heart says they still looked for ways to stay true to the Cub but also offer some improvements. Examples of changes they made are a wider fuselage by 3 inches, 2 doors instead of one, and all their models have a full electrical system. Of course, they can offer instruments that range from the old “steam gauges” to a more modern all-glass panel.

Hart goes on to describe the flying qualities of the airplane, and as he describes the feature you’ll follow along in the video to get a good look at these great little airplanes. While watching the video you might think you’re looking back in time, but these Cubs are new airplanes for today’s low and slow pilots.
