Super Legend Gets Upgrades In Airframe, Avionics


American Legend’s Cub-style Super Legend, introduced four years ago, has some upgraded features including more carbon fiber components. American Legend has completed certification of its Kevlar and carbon fiber LF1500A floats for the Super Legend, filling customer demand. The floats come with a manual gear system and watertight storage. The Super Legend — a beefed-up version of the original Legend Cub — also underwent a few design changes to include more carbon fiber components such as doors, floorboards, spinner and wingtip bows.

The Legend series, which rolled out a decade ago with the Legend Cub, offers LSA and kit versions. Other upgrades announced this week during Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Florida, include the availability of Garmin G3X avionics and an ADS-B system now approved for installation using FreeFlight Systems’ 1201 WAAS GPS sensor and a Trig Mode S and 1090ES ADS-B Out capable transponder.
