Apco Santana


A 1997 purpose designed intermediate beginner wing, with the potential of a real XC machine. Easy to ground handling, launch and flight.  In the air, the Santana's real strength is its stability and performance combined with effortless maneuverability.

The glider is intended for the first-time buyer and will replace the Sabra. It was launched in 4 sizes - 25, 28, 30 and 32.  The glider derived directly from the Futura, has a lower aspect ratio and less ribs, and is enhanced by a new color design, totally different from the previous APCO tradition, in order to give a fresh, modern look to the entire '98 glider line.

The glider is adapted to the needs of the beginner / intermediate market, even though its performance exceeds by far the performance of the Sabra. It has a solid feel, with very little or no pitch oscillation. The handling is direct and uncomplicated. Safety fully conforms to Standard Class requirements.

Santana came with a CarryBag with a shoe/helmet pocket, inner Stuff Bag, Accelerator, closing strap,spares kit, clear complete manual, and a 3 year / 250 hour Warranty.
