Now available... LF1500A carbon fiber amphibious floats for the Legend Cub.
Designed and manufactured by American Legend Aircraft Company, the all-new LF1500A floats allow for takeoffs and landings on both water and terra firma. The floats offer superb strength and are optimized for performance with the company’s certified LSA and kit-built aircraft.
Features include mechanically operated retractable wheels. The rear wheels sport a trailing link design while the front wheels cantilever forward. The solution is both practical and proven to ensure reliability and safety. The LF1500A amphibs by American Legend also offer watertight storage compartments and are constructed of Kevlar and carbon fiber.
A Legend Cub equipped with Carbon Fiber Amphib Floats feels just like the wheel-equipped Legend Cub in flight with the aerodynamic floats providing some lift, negating additional drag or weight concerns. Net weight gain on a Legend Cub with the LF1500A floats is minimal and the Carbon Fiber Amphibs are available for all models, including the open-cowled AL3 and the Lycoming-equipped Super Legend.
Ground handling with the new carbon fiber floats is exceptional. Straight-line tracking keeps the tail in its aft alignment. Differential braking and castoring front wheels provide positive steering control. Step taxi is brief, allowing fast water takeoffs. The LF1500A floats are rigid and generous buoyancy of the amphibs ensure minimal time going from plow onto the step and reduce chances of porpoising.
