Apco Play



Play 42 has been in production for professional tandem pilots.

The Play42 MKII uses the same platform and technical data as the Play 42 (retaining existing certification) but has a large number of improvements, leading to a much better, well-polished tandem glider.

The Play42 MKII features built-in Neodymium magnets and swivels on the brake handles, replacable, no-slip, trimmer webbing, improved B-line reduction, new sand removal system (velcro "butt-holes"), HIT valve equipped on L/E, and double coated siliconised cloth (covered by 3 years / 250 hours warranty).
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.
