One, Two… Three?


Take a look at the seat back just below the fist in this picture. Forget the fact that the fist is attached to an arm reaching in through a baggage door on the turtleneck of this Cub-like-airplane. Know what’s special about that seat? Well it isn’t the pilot seat, and it isn’t the normal passenger seat. No—its the THIRD seat in a row align the Legend MOAC (Mother Of All Cubs) a three seat tandem. Nope, you don’t see THAT very often!

The MOAC is Legend’s version of the “ultimate” Cub – big tires, lots of extra high lift doo-dads, and an engine with a horsepower rating in the neighborhood of 200. The third seat is removable of course—it’s made possible by the fact that you can put 180 pounds of baggage behind the regular passenger seat, and the installation of a seat belt and shoulder harness. The rear baggage door gives access to even more baggage space for your sled dogs of course, or for those in warmer climes, maybe a set of golf clubs. Or a beach umbrella.

(YMMV – please make sure to check your weight and balance before all flights!)
