The Legend Smart Cub G3 features next-generation avionics in one of aviation's most revered designs. The first customer delivery of a Legend Smart Cub G3 is expected later this month.
Available now, the Legend Smart Cub G3 features an integrated Garmin G3X™ “glass cockpit” system combining full primary flight display functions, such as attitude/directional guidance, along with electronic engine monitoring and detailed moving-map capabilities.

The Legend Smart Cub G3 can also be equipped with a GX Pilot autopilot from TruTrak Flight Systems.

Key features of the G3X™ that enhance the Legend Smart Cub G3 include the ability to display detailed electronic charts and real time weather directly on the instrument panel. The Garmin G3X™ controls are a combination of soft touch keys and a joystick on its bezel-features borrowed from the successful GPSMAP 696 and GDU 370/375 series.
