SULPHUR SPRINGS, TEXAS, JULY 2, 2015 – American Legend Aircraft Company announced today a twofold partnership with Sporty's Pilot Shop, the leader in aviation products and pilot supplies. First, Sporty's will award a new Legend Cub as its next sweepstakes aircraft. Secondly, Sporty's will offer new aircraft sales of the Legend Cub through its FBO, Eastern Cincinnati Aviation.
"Sporty's Pilot Shop has selected the Legend Cub as the grand prize for our next sweepstakes," stated Michael Wolf, Sporty's President & CEO. "The Legend Cub was a hit for our 2013 sweepstakes," Wolf continued. "We know a winner when we see it and we're pleased to be teaming up with Legend again." Sporty's customers are automatically entered into the Sporty's Legend Cub sweepstakes with every purchase.
In addition to the sweepstakes, Sporty's Eastern Cincinnati Aviation will now offer sales and service of new Legend Cub aircraft. Every item offered by Sporty's has been tested by a team of active pilots, including the Legend Cub. Only products demonstrating value and reliability are offered. In this manner, Sporty's is able to recommend and support all its offerings. Sporty's expects to take delivery of its next Legend Cub in early July and have it on display at AirVenture Oshkosh.
"The Sporty's philosophy blends well with American Legend and the tradition we started with our Legend Cub," commented Darin Hart, president of American Legend Aircraft Company. He continued, "We have always set our sights on building a great aircraft. We began with a beloved classic, then modernized it adding new technologies. We have kept it practical, enjoyable and easy-to-use. And our number one goal has always been to make reliable aircraft. We are very pleased with the new sales opportunities presented by Sporty's."
Chuck Gallagher, president of Sporty's Cincinnati Avionics and Eastern Cincinnati Aviation is also excited with these announcements. Gallagher states, "American Legend, through their Legend Cub and Super Legend aircraft, has put the fun back into flying. Whether on wheels, skis or amphibious floats, these aircraft have economically brought back the joy of simple flight at a speed and altitude allowing the pilot and their passenger to take in the beauty of our great countryside!"
American Legend Aircraft Company continues to be one of the most successful manufacturers in the sport pilot category and is noted for its exceptional product support. American Legend is renown for building a true Cub, yet one that is sensibly modern, competitively priced, and built to last. The aircraft configuration possibilities offered by American Legend are limited only by one's imagination.
