Airborne 07.10.20: Mother Of ALL Cubs, Airshows!, Bristell B8 High-Wing

Also: Summering... On Mars, Hartzell Engine Tech, 2020 FAI General Conference, Gogo Inflight

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for the backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. Our friends at the International Council of AirShows have pointed out a bright spot for the wh
