As airplane manufacturers look for customers, customers are searching for a way to make their airplane ownership dream come true. Both are often thwarted by the poor economy, but American Legend Aircraft thinks it has a solution through joint ownership.
The program promises that a Legend Cub can be purchased for $2,900 down and flown for $28 per hour. It is managed through the LetsFly Cooperative Ownership Program. You’ll end up with a one-quarter share of a Legend Cub and a monthly payment of $365 to $430, company officials claim.
The Legend Cub, built in Texas, is one of the top-selling light sport aircraft, and is a full-size lookalike to the famous Piper Cub.
AOPA Pilot Senior Editor Alton Marsh has been a pilot since 1970 and has an airline transport pilot certificate and instrument and multiengine flight instructor certificates, aerobatic training, and a commercial seaplane certificate.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
