That’s STOL!

Pilot - - NOTES -

This Amer­i­can Le­gend Air­craft Com­pany Su­per Le­gend XP home­built took first place and scored best over­all in the re­cent Texas STOL Roundup held at South Texas Re­gional Air­port in Hondo.

Owner Joe Ed­wards, who had re­cently com­pleted the air­craft, took off in 158.1ft and landed in a to­tal of 530.7ft, in­clud­ing a 300ft dis­placed thresh­old over an ob­sta­cle of 25ft in­flat­able py­lons. His land­ing per­for­mance was the best recorded in all classes, and his com­bined score (take­off-plus-land­ing to­tal dis­tances) was 110ft shorter than that of the next clos­est com­peti­tor.
