Sporty's Will Award Legend Cub for 2013 Sweepstakes

Sporty’s has chosen the Legend Cub as the airplane for its 2013 Sweepstakes, 75 years after William Piper founded his iconic aircraft company. For more than 20 years Sporty’s has awarded a brand new airplane to a lucky customer. All Sporty’s Pilot Shop customers are automatically entered to win the airplane every time they order.

“The Legend Cub combines the best of both worlds,” says Sporty’s President and CEO Michael Wolf. “The airplane has the classic design of the original Cub along with new technological enhancements to create an airplane that’s both modern and nostalgic.”

Manufactured by American Legend Aircraft Company, the Legend Cub is an aircraft any pilot would enjoy flying, and one of the most gratifying recreational aircraft available today.

The Cub features a complete Garmin panel, including an Aera 796 GPS, SL40 com radio and GTX 330 transponder.

“Sporty’s is all about having fun in the air, and there’s no better plane for that than a Cub,” adds Wolf. “This promises to be one of our most popular airplanes.”

The Legend Cub will be awarded during Sporty’s Annual Fly-In, scheduled for May 18, 2013.
