LIAISON BRIEF ISSUE NO. 32, DATE: 19 Feb 2016
NEWS Legend Cub YouTube Channel Launched
American Legend Aircraft Company is excited to announce the launch of a new YouTube channel exclusively for the Legend Cub. YouTube is a free video-sharing website offering exciting new possibilities for sharing Legend Cub flying experiences.
The new Legend Cub YouTube channel is a place where owners and operators can share videos of their favorite flights in a Legend Cub. Here, you’ll find playlists and video shorts on specific topics like taking a first flight, adventures afar and around the patch, building a Legend Cub, and flight reviews from the top aviation writers.
YouTube was created in the same year American Legend Aircraft Company introduced and delivered its first Legend Cub. That was 2005. While both technologies may seem like they’ve been around much longer, perhaps this is because each is actually an evolution. Both stem from previous ideas, successfully transforming today into platforms uniquely their own.
With YouTube, television suddenly became old school, limited in its functionality. Today, YouTube users can upload, view and share videos on any topic imaginable. The website succeeds in bringing original content to viewers worldwide and on-demand.
Similarly, success for the Legend Cub came about in combining state-of-the-art flying with sport and purpose. While retaining all the great qualities of the legendary aircraft that preceded it, namely the Piper Cub, the Legend Cub of today enhances this classic adding modern materials, methods of construction, and advanced systems.
The successful evolution of these two technologies dates back nearly a century. The first television signal transmissions began to appear in the late 1920s. The Cub first appeared in 1930 as the Taylor E-2 Cub. Their modern day evolutions are now deeply entrenched in the lives of people around the world.
The new Legend Cub YouTube channel will host videos of manufacturing, training, pilotage and more, all in the Legend Cub. Videos will include demonstrations by owners, instructors, writers, reviewers and anyone with a fondness for the aircraft.
With the proliferation of action video cameras today, the YouTube channel offers wide-ranging possibilities. Legend Cub operators are encouraged to send their videos, and/or share their YouTube posted video links with the Legend Cub YouTube channel.
American Legend Aircraft Company is pleased to embrace the platform and to share the excitement of flying a Legend Cub. Subscribers to the Legend Cub YouTube channel will receive notifications when new content is posted.
American Legend Aircraft Company is a recognized leader in the manufacture of sport aircraft. YouTube is commonly listed as the third most visited website, following Facebook and Google.

LIFESTYLE Cub’s on the List of 20 Most Produced Aircraft of All Time
If you’re a pilot, there is a good chance you’ve flown one or more of the “20 Most Produced Aircraft Of All Time.” Landing deftly on this list is the famed and beloved Piper J-3 Cub with more than 20,000 aircraft produced.
The classic and beloved Cub is in good company among trainer, passenger-carrying, utility, and fighter aircraft. The Cub has at one time played each of these roles and one might say it dutifully rounds out the list.
Cubs have trained thousands of pilots and continue to do so today, more than 80 years after it was first introduced. In Alaska and many other remote places around the world, the Cub and its derivatives continue to serve a vital utility role. Historically, the Cub’s engagement in wartime pursuits, at times armed and successful in self-defense, is documented and distinguished.
The Legend Cub redefines the classic J-3, among the most produced aircraft of all time.
The list was compiled by Boldmethod.com, a website purporting to deliver “digital aviation content to educate, inspire and train.” And what pilot doesn’t constantly engage is his/her pursuit of flying? In this infectious industry, we all know so well that the flying bug keeps us learning and yearning for more.
Considering all the Cub-alikes and Super Cubs that have succeeded the J-3 Cub, it’s likely that the venerable Cub will continue its ascent among the 20 Most Produced Aircraft of All Time.

REVIEW Read About the Legend Cub Down Under
Legend Cub – Wings Out West – Australian PilotThe Legend Cub (actually a pair of them) has arrived down under. In this article, An ‘Old’ Classic for the 21st Century, Dan Compton takes his first Legend Cub out for a spin with author/reviewer Mark Smith.
Highlights from the article include, “Cubs are friendly looking aeroplanes and, when painted in their distinctive Cub-yellow paint, are probably one of the most recognisable aircraft ever built.
“Another improvement over the original is a full electrical system, allowing for a starter and avionics. But these additions that are part of flying today don’t take away from the experience of enjoying a J-3.”
