American Legend Announces Its New 'Combat' Cub

LSA Features Historic Military Paint Scheme

American Legend Aircraft Company decided Memorial Day was the right time to announce a new option on its Legend Cub aircraft that pays homage to the historic Piper L-4, L-18 and L-21 liaison aircraft that saw service in the US Army and Air Force in the 1940s. The company's new LSA-certified Legend Combat features a design reminiscent of those classic planes, while also offering the latest high-tech instrumentation and modern electronics.

The Legend Combat made its inaugural debut at the EAA's Southwest Regional Fly-in in Hondo, TX earlier this month, where it was on static display during the show. It features military green paint, with black and white markings of the 1940s.

The original Legend Cub is a two-place aircraft designed for the recreational and light-sport pilot. The aircraft is similar in design and appearance to vintage Piper J-3, PA-11 and PA-18 Cubs.

The new military paint scheme is being offered by American Legend as an option. It is patterned after the L-4, L-18 and L-21 designated, Piper-produced aircraft dating from 1942 to 1962. These aircraft were commonly nicknamed Grasshoppers... a nickname that also applies to the Legend Cub, American Legend says, as both the Legend Cub and Legend Combat are well-suited to takeoffs and landings on grass strips.

Both the Legend Cub and Legend Combat are manufactured in Sulphur Springs, TX.

American Legend Aircraft Company offers the new Legend Cub and Legend Combat with a variety of standard features, including doors on both sides of the fuselage, an aircraft electrical system with starter, wing-mounted fuel tanks, and a three-inch wider cabin over the original Cub. A 100-hp Continental O-200 engine is the sole powerplant.
