Super Legend, Lycoming Engine

The new Super Legend from American Legend Aircraft Company was inspired by one of the most useful and imitated aircraft in all of aviation. Versatile, and wildly popular, the legendary Super Cub is born again as the modern Super Legend.

As an innovation leader, the Super Legend is built to enthrall and delight recreational and backcountry flyers alike. Modern in every respect, the Super Legend is built to be dependable and reliable. It sports an open cabin feel, exceptional slow flight, and docile handling.
