After a dozen years of enjoyable flight in my RV-6, it was time to add a low-n-slow aircraft to the hangar. The Legal Eagle XL is the latest version of Leonard Milholland’s classic ultralight, and offered the opportunity to add gas welding to my skill set. The XL was completed over an enjoyable fourteen months and has proven to be a delight to fly with the 45hp Hummell 1/2 VW engine. Complete details on the construction of XL-58 are available on the XL-58 website.
