American Legend Aircraft Company announced a $2500 discount on its Texas Sport amateur-built aircraft kit. The Texas Sport is a kitted version of the American Legend Cub, and is intended for both novice and experienced amateur aircraft builders. The discount is valid for orders placed through the close of the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In, or April 18, 2010.
The Texas Sport aircraft kit comprises four major sections: fuselage, wings, tail and firewall-forward kits. Each kit includes all the necessary components and hardware for complete assembly of that section. Customers who purchase all four major sections will receive the $2500 rebate off the regular price of $39,900.
As an amateur-built aircraft, the Texas Sport requires more than 51% of fabrication to be performed by the builder. The kit has been carefully designed to enable builders to assemble their aircraft using commonly available tools. The fuselage section includes a fully welded frame. The wing section includes fully riveted aluminum wing structures requiring only final assembly of components. No welding and no jigs are required to complete the kit. The distinctive design of the four major sections greatly simplifies the fabrication of this tube-and-fabric aircraft, the company says.
The builder has a choice of engines and optional equipment including electrical components, instrumentation, interior and paint finishes. Additional items to be sourced include a covering kit, engine and propeller, and instrumentation and avionics, and these can be purchased through American Legend. Optional items include choice of lighting, wheels, floats, ELT and more. American Legend Aircraft Company also offers a 14- or 21-day “KwikBild” program to assist builders with the completion of their aircraft in a factory setting.
