Legend (turboprop)

This must be one of the ultimate kitplanes. From a standing start, accelerate the Legend to flying speed in about 5 seconds. After lift-off, the steady push on your back continues as you retract the gear and flaps. Pitch up for the best rate of climb air speed and note climb rates of five thousand feet per minute, and more.

Level off for cruise and you quickly become aware that the Legend exhibits healthy, positive static and dynamic stability, making cross-country flight the enjoyable experience it should be. Comfortable cockpit seating and superb visibility through the one-piece canopy further enhance the experience.

Precise powerful control authority yields crisp pitch response and allows you to experience roll rates of 200 degrees per second.

Time to get back on the ground? The same powerful aerodynamic controls provide solid comfortable handling in the pattern and on the ground. 170 mph (148 knots) flap speeds and 150 mph (130 knots) gear speeds help you to reduce to pattern velocity quickly and efficiently. With the turbine engine, there's no need to worry about shock cooling.

Arrive over the fence at 95 to 100 mph (85 knots) and upon touchdown, a powerful tail allows you to easily hold the nose wheel off the ground until slowed. The extra wide track landing gear stance provides outstanding directional stability during roll out, as well as manoeuvrability for parking.
