Legend FloatCub Equipped With Carbon Fiber Floats
Designed and manufactured by American Legend Aircraft Company, the Legend FloatCub, with amphibious floats, can perform takeoffs and landings on both water and terra firma. Its LF1500A carbon fiber floats offer superb strength and are optimized for performance with Legend’s FAA approved LSA and kit-built aircraft.
The LF1500A floats are purposely built for the Legend Cub and Super Legend. American Legend Aircraft Company designed, tested and certified the floats in-house. They offer watertight storage compartments and are constructed of lightweight Kevlar reinforced carbon fiber composite.
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. Ground handling is exceptional. Differential braking and castoring front wheels provide positive steering control. On landing, the four wheels keep the “taildragger” in alignment with the runway.
Step taxi arrives quickly on takeoff with the float’s designed-in rigidity and generous buoyancy. In flight, a Legend Cub will feel just like the wheeled aircraft. The aerodynamic shape of the floats provides some lift, negating additional drag and weight concerns. The floats are available for all Legend Cub models, including the open-cowled AL3 and Lycoming- equipped Super Legend.
“I have been flying a Legend FloatCub for several years now. It has been by far, one of the best purchases I have made in my 40 years of flying. I have flown flying boats and other floatplanes. This one is a keeper.” – Bill Fosdick
The Legend FloatCub has an award-winning pedigree, having twice won Best Take-Off at International Seaplane Fly-In (Greenville, MN) in 2009 and 2010.
