Legend Cub Takes to Water

Mary Grady

The pretty yellow two-seat Cubs built by American Legend Aircraft Co. expertly blend the classic and the cutting-edge, combining old-time fun flying with the latest in technological wizardry. Their latest model combines two other opposites, land and water, now both accessible for takeoffs and landings thanks to amphibious landing gear. The AmphibCub sports a set of floats with a simple crank that brings wheels down for landing on ordinary runways. Wide doors on both sides of the cockpit make docking and access easy, and rear rudders provide excellent handling on the water. It’s easy to understand how this capable little sport machine won the award for “Cutest Darn Aircraft” at a Maine fly-in for seaplanes. The Legend AmphibCub sells for $159,000.
