The Wing for experienced Pilots
The Air XTreme represents a new generation in power parachute technology.
Truly a break through design.
Caution: The wing is designed for experienced pilots with sufecient airtime. Proper training is mandatory to safely operate the wing within its "frame of limitations", when upgrading from your "PowerWing" to the AirXtreme.
Have Fun, Fly the Wing. Ask your PPC Supplier for a test flight.
Apco's Powerwings are the only PPC wings available on the market today wich is approved by world aviation standards. Apco's AirXtreme Wing was tested by the DHV in Germany, and passed the static strenght load tests! (Click here for more Details).
The Air XTreme Powered Parachute Wing was born from the experience that Apco Aviation gained over the years in designing and manufacturing high performance Paragliders and Paramotoring Wings, as well as developing wings for Powered Parachuting.
The Air XTreme 400 (released after the 500) differs from the 500 in that it has a higher speed, quicker response and generally a more sporty feel. It is intended for more experienced pilots. Even though it has a smaller area than the 500, the Maximum load rating remains the same.
Attention to design and manufacturing detail is what puts APCO "Above" the rest of the gaggle.
What this means is that you:
