    Glad to be a part of this site. I'm a new Legend Cub owner, AL3, and I love it.

    You bet! Legend has been underrecognized here for a long time!

    I've spent about fifty hours teaching in an AL18 Super Legend in the last months, it really is a friskly little airplane.

    I have many hours with the AL3 on both Legend and Baumann floats. Good performer on both land and water. PM me if you have any specific questions.

    The Legend is/has been on my list of possible future purchase for quite some time. Been a big fan since they started producing their 'copy' of the J-3 many years ago. They've slowly increased the capabilities of their options up to the now made beast, the MOAC. I visited the factory a couple of years ago and may still someday have one build or do the build assist. My 172 is finally going to it's next caretaker this spring so I have been crunching numbers and actively looking for the next 'toy' for my box.

    Been offered a very low time 180K (1600TT),a Piper PA-14 that is owned by a friend. I keep coming back to the Legend, A Super Legend HP specifically.

    I personally like the Legend over the 'other' brand, mostly for my own reasons. Darin is a very down to earth type and super easy to talk to.

    Hopefully more Legend owners will post their experiences.

    No experience on floats. I have a Super Legend that came with the O-233 Lyc 115 hp. Now I have the Titan O-340 on it. There is a story behind the change that has nothing to do with the O-233 or American Legend Aircraft. For just screwing around, the 115 hp was wonderful. I took it the 15,000 ft with full fuel and my daughter in the back seat (skinny 17 year old). It performed about the same as a 150 hp SuperCub (I did a 2 day flight head to head with a PA-18 from Santa Fe to Fort Worth to come up with that opinion). The Titan is a little faster, better with a load, and climbs better, but is not quite as light on the controls. For a given speed, fuel burn is almost the same.

    My dealings with Darin Hart and American Legend Aircraft have been great. They do my annuals and incorporate any upgrades I request. The downside is that I miss going out to Graham and seeing Steve Pierce for my annuals (he took care of my PA-14).

    We just sold an O-200 powered kit built Legend. It was Chris' introduction to Cubs, a nice flying plane. She flew it to Johnson Creek twice and it did great.

    We had planned on putting it on floats, but a friend needed to go light sport, so we let it go.

    I only have about 3 hours in a Super Legend so I can't really speak much about it. I've got about 40 hours in AL3's so far and it's such a great airplane. If you have any specific questions about them let me know...be glad to talk to you.

    Spent some time the other day looking over a Super Dooper ALC undergoing construction down on the Coast. 210 HP, constant speed prop, glass panels, coupled 3 axis Otto and slotted Fowler Flaps. An interesting endeavor!

    I think the AL-3 on Amphib floats is the most joyful airplane you can fly! And I've flown many different models, Maule, C180, PA-18, PA-16, PA-14. If the AL-3 fits your mission then I say go for it!

    Now that Stewart has pointed out the MOAC to me, I will be following Legend topics with great interest.
    They really do seem to be underrepresented here. I wonder why.

    Good question, the few I've seen appear to be top quality and excellent performers.
