L600 — known as Legend 540 or 600 in Europe — is a new arrival in America, although this high wing LSA is known in Europe for a few years. At Sun ‘n Fun 2017, we spoke with U.S. importer, Deon Lombard, who tells about this entry in the Light-Sport Aircraft field. If it looks familiar to you, it should. L600 was modeled after the Cessna 182 at approximately 80% scale. That’s probably smart as nearly every pilot on the planet has been in a Cessna 172 or 182 at one time or another and probably came to like it …except for their prices. In comparison L600 is very attractively priced. The aircraft is a try composite unlike the older model it resembles.

I have a genuine interest in your aircraft. I see it comes with a 912…to a 914. What horsepower will the 914 put out and at what speed? Also if I wanted to fit a Viking engine is that possible, and at what cost? I would be looking at a unit fully loaded as seen in your pictures. I am in south australia what are the shipping costs. Can you give me an estimate on the above.

Hi Stephen: You replied to article focused on Aeropilot USA. They cannot sell to you in Australia. Please contact Aeropilot in the Czech Republic and ask your questions.
You need to talk to Silent Wings. They’re in Australia; they had 2 of these aircraft on display in the 2017 Oz-Kosh at Narromine. I believe Ed Smith in W.A. is in charge of the importing/sales.
