American Legend Aircraft Company Delivers Legend Cub Light-Sport Aircraft Equipped With Advanced Avionics Suite

American Legend Aircraft Company announced Thursday the delivery of a Legend Cub light-sport aircraft to Roy Stephens of La Quinta, CA. The delivery marks the third production aircraft completed to a customer’s specification since Legend received its S-LSA certification on the type last July.

Roy Stephens is a highly experienced pilot who owns and flies numerous aircraft. He selected the Legend Cub for its ability to be customized direct from the factory. Stephens opted to equip his Legend Cub with an advanced avionics suite that included the TIS-capable Garmin GNC 420 GPS/Comm with Garmin 330 Transponder. This avionics package allows the pilot to receive FAA Traffic Information Services (TIS) data. In addition to the Garmin package, Stephens chose a Dynon Avionics EFIS-D100 with a 7-inch diagonal display. According to Dynon, this is the first production aircraft to be equipped with the new D100.

Tim Elliott, president of American Legend Aircraft Company, commented, “You don’t see too many Cubs with avionics like this. Some may say it’s over doing it, but this customer is really excited about taking delivery of his well-equipped Legend Cub.”

To mark the occasion, Stephens will take delivery of his Legend Cub at Copper State Regional EAA Fly-In in Casa Grande, Arizona. A ceremonial handover of the keys to Roy's Legend Cub will take place at noon on Friday, October 7th at the Legend exhibit. Stephens’ airplane will be on display there from October 6th through 9th.
