Apco Air Extreme / AX

apcoairextreme


The Air XTreme design utilised CAD CAM and hundreds of flight test hours. Simple and safe to fly and handle, but intended for experienced pilots, and requiring an understanding of the limitations of the wing.


Smooth level flight without cart leaning to the left and back, because of the lower RPM at straight and level Fight. The Air XTreme features reduced engine RPM by 1,200 - 1,500 for straight and level flight.


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.
