American Legend Aircraft Company is now offering its Cub LSA with the Garmin G3X multi-function display, which was designed for the light sport and experimental market. The G3X was first released about a year ago and the company has continued to add new features and functionality. The G3X system features a seven-inch display with full primary flight display functions, such as attitude/directional guidance, plus electronic engine monitoring and detailed moving-map capabilities. The Legend Smart Cub G3 instrument panel also includes a Garmin SL-40 Com, GTX 327 transponder, and PS Engineering PM1200 intercom. The first customer delivery of a Smart Cub G3 is expected by the end of the month, Legend says.
"This is an exciting introduction for American Legend," said general manager Kurt Sehnert. "Customers are excited to have these capabilities on a Legend Cub. It allows them to fly at night and provides real-time display of weather, terrain, METARS, NOTAMS, PIREPS, traffic, and more." The system will provide pilots with enhanced situational awareness, he said.
Thanks to Daniel Valovich for this great shot of a Pitts. We're getting great pictures but some of the descriptions leave a lot to be desired. Set the scene for our readers. Tell us the type of plane, name of the pilot, if you know, where the photo was taken and what was going on at the time. You'll have a much better chance of getting your photo published.
