April 2012: LIFT 450 PPC wing

APCO is proud to make a bold claim - history in the making. We are launching the all new LIFT 450 PPC wing. Reflex profile based, revolutionary concept - to make all past generation PPC wings obsolete.

Do not be misled by the elliptical shape and high performance of the wing - the LIFT 450 is not just a high performance wing aimed at ace pilots, it is a wing to replace the majority of today's rectangular PPC wings. The safety and pilot friendly behavior of LIFT450 are on a par with any basic PPC wing you have ever known.

April 2012: NEW :: Guided Mayday SLT

G-MD SLT is the new born superlight brother of our well known and respected G-MD. The G-MD SLT shares the same performance of G-MD SLT, but is much lighter (less than 2 kg.) and smaller pack volume.

G-MD SLT - fully certified to EN requirements. The G-MD SLT offers super fast, yet still soft deployment, making sure you land safely, unshocked while safly steering to a landing field chosen by you. The deployment sequence of G-MD SLT is designed to function with or without a cut-off system for the main wing, making it attractive to weekend pilots thanks to the simplicity of use, combined with the advantages of a steerable guiding rescue.
