Apco Power Wing / PW

apcopowerwingiv


The Powerwing MK IV, representing a third generation in rectangular wing design (from Apco). It is an evolution of the previous MK II design which was well accepted by PPC pilots. MK IV has even better handling and stability with a more coordinated turn and improved rigidity in the air, making flying more comfortable and reasuring. The wing still has the classic rectangular look and retains all the parameters and features of previous Apco powerwings.


Apco's Powerwing was tested by ACPULS (AFNOR) in France, and passed both the shock and static strenght load tests.


The Hybrid Power Wing 500 & 550 devolpment came after extensive work by the Apco R&D team. It delivers lift greater than the 550 and the exact handling of the 400, while giving a higher performance in glide ratio.
