PRODUCT INFORMATION

A truly revolutionary glider design – The APCO Hybrid. The Hybrid represents the first wing in this class – a new category of wing in our sport, with unprecedented flying characteristics. This unique design combines a classic double surface profile with a single surface profile, together creating a hybrid profile.

Certified in EN-B category, with all but 2 manoeuvres rated EN-A indicating the real life safety of this unique design! Putting aside all the hype – this wing must be flown to be believed!

CHARACTERISTICS

PITCH STABILITY

The Hybrid has enough air mass and inertia to penetrate through the air rather then being controlled by the air.

ROLL STABILITY

With this wing, there will be NO roll oscillation what so ever!! When free flying, the pilot will notice that it is “hard” to perform wing-overs.

TAKE OFF

Take-off speed is surprisingly slower than most EN A wings.  This helps tremendously in “not perfect” take-off conditions. Back-wind of 5-7 [kmh] is not a problem with the Hybrid.

LANDING

The Apco Hybrid has a flair as good as traditional paragliders in class A or B, only better in that the wing has a very long and forgiving brake range.

PERFORMANCE

The Hybrid offers performance that is substantially higher than that of single skin gliders, and at trim speed, it is as good as a conventional glider.
