Apco Fiesta

apcofiesta


The Fiesta was designed to be a backbone of the range for 2000 and beyond,l and the Fiesta II was new in 2001.


The glider was availlable in 4 sizes: Extra Small, Small, Medium and Large, covering weight range from 60-120 kg (total take-off weight).


The 3 main sizes Small, Medium and Large are certified DHV 1 Trim and Accelarated and ACPULS certification in Standard Class was completed for all four sizes. There is no difference between the ACPUL and DHV version, glider and line measurements are the same.


The idea was to release a glider with performance and handling which would be better than any other glider on the market in its Class, fulfilling the expectations of the most ambitious intermediate pilot, but with great emphasis on safety and user-friendly behavior.


Fiesta replaced Santana and Santana production was ceased. Fiesta's performance and handling exceeds that of Santana.


Fiesta Light - Mountain/Biouvac Version:
Available was a mountaineering/hiking version of the Fiesta in Small and Medium sizes. This is a very light, compact version of Fiesta, made from special cloth and lines to make it suitable for hiking, trekking and biouvacing. Manufacturing technique and materials are specially adapted to make it exceedingly light, but without sacrificing any of the good nature and excellent performance of the regular Fiesta.
Technical data and specs are basically the same, except that the cloth, lines and risers are of lighter materials, enabling the glider's weight to be well below 5 kg. (4-4.5 kg for Small and Medium size).


Fiesta Paramotor Version:
All 4 sizes of Fiesta - XSmall, Small, Medium and Large is available in a specially adapted version of the Fiesta for use with paramotor.
Extensive testing of Fiesta in paramotor flying confirmed that it is a wing exceptionally well suited to paramotor flying. This is due to a super easy launch with no bad tendencies; even, smooth with no overshooting. Safety, handling and performance make it a natural choice for paramotor. It is also very tolerant to the engine's P-factor, making the left-hand pull very light.

Size L and Tandem were available with DUVL Certification.


Fiesta Tandem:
The Fiesta Tandem was available with DHV and DUVL Certification. This glider is especially designed to meet the needs of the professional tandem pilot market. Any pilot looking for a wing which is safe, very easy to fly and can fulfill the requirements of professionals offering tandem rides with the need to make a quick turn around with their passengers.


Fiesta Tandem did not replace the Futura Tandem, which was still offered.
The Fiesta Tandem ABC is, with DUVL Certification, for two seater PPC frames.
