Apco Prima

apcoprima


The Prima was introduced in 1993. Since then thousands have been delivered, probably the longest produced classic trainer - it is equally well suited for teaching free flying and perfect for entry level paramotoring.


This wing has been modernised with a 3rd version released. The wing is exactly the same as before, but has improved flare and adaptability for paramotor flying. The canopy is also more rigid (no tip movement), with redesigned, modern handling - direct and responsive in comparison with Prima II. To refresh and distinguish, Prima III has been dressed in a new color design.


The rest of Prima specifications remain the same. As always, produced from Gelvenor cloth combined with heavy duty lines, to ensure long lasting life.
The Prima III was designed for the beginner pilot with Big Ear and B-stall facilities, Split A's, and a 3 Riser system with accelerator.


The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel. Price 2009: US$1,800.00
