December 2014: LIFT 400 - expanding the LIFT PPC range

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from the Apco Team

Following market expectations we are now announcing a smaller version of this revolutionary reflex wing - LIFT 400

November 2014: VISTA III review

NRG <i>PRO</i> - now in all sizes

Marcus King flies the Vista III, the Latest EN B from Apco Aviation (Cross Country No 156) :

"As I cross over a small ridgeline the wing surges forward then jumps up and we are off. Wow this is a screamer; I bury the brake and hold on tightly to the core. The scenery spins and falls away. With stable air all around the edges are hard and I have to be careful not to miss the turn but my wing is sitting above my head without too much pitching. The clouds and airspace are arriving quickly..."
