Apparently American Legend Aircraft’s Cub, a light sport aircraft, just wants to play. Its usual home is on grass or floating on the water. Now, it’s going skiing.
American Legend Aircraft Company, located in Texas, has offered a $5,995 option to mount TrickAir skis on its aircraft, including the kit Cub models. The skis are manufactured by Trick Air of Weyauwega, Wis., and allow the main wheels to penetrate through the skis. That means you can land on a hard surface as well as grass, ice, and snow. Installation is claimed to take only 15 minutes.
To date, American Legend has delivered 160 Cubs. To learn more, contact American Legend Aircraft Company at 903/885-7000 or visit the Web for the light sport Cub or the Texas Sport aircraft kit.
Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
If you are going to learn to fly a helicopter you first have to learn how to control it.
The Commemorative Air Force will announce a new headquarters location.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
