More Information

A truly revolutionary design – The APCO Hybrid.

The Hybrid represents the first wing in this class – a new category of wing in our sport, with unprecedented flying characteristics. This unique design combines a classic double surface profile with a single surface profile, together creating a hybrid profile.

Putting aside all the hype – this wing must be flown to be believed!

Specifically for Paramotor, the Hybrid possess characteristics which will shine on early morning flights and days with nil wind. Front launch and take-off sequence are without a doubt the next step in our sport!  The Hybrid’s take-off and landing speed is lower than comparable wings, making it easier and safer. In the air, the Hybrid is an ultra stable wing in terms of both roll and pitch. The brakes are more efficient than any other classic profile wing and the brake pressure is below anything you have ever tried! The Hybrid is not intended to replace reflex profile paramotor wings which excel at high speeds and in rough air. On the contrary, it is perfect for cruising around, making the entire flight envelope easier, calmer and more enjoyable.

Certified in EN-B category, with all but 2 manoeuvres rated EN-A indicating the real life safety of this unique design!

Putting aside all the hype – this wing must be flown to be believed!

The advantages of this concept both in free flight and paramotor are almost unbelievable! The Hybrid is much more than an exotic wing for special purposes. It offers many advantages over single skin designs and also classic wings in beginner to sport categories. Hybrid wings will become mainstream products within a few years, replacing many classic designs out there. We are proud that APCO is behind such an innovation!

This project has been long and difficult but we are sure the term “Hybrid” will be forever coined into our sport!

Background

This project started off as a concept, an idea that Apco wanted to explore but never expected what They found! The initial test flights of the first prototype were so impressive that we virtually dropped all other projects in an effort to bring this wing to the market. After 2 years of intense R&D we launched the HYBRID!

The Hybrid must be flown to believe all the “hype” around it, but we promise you it is that SPECIAL! Any pilot that had the chance to try it was amazed and after only 1 flight, convinced that this concept is here to stay!

The Hybrid is light (3 kg), but not designed to be a “Lightweight” wing. the absence of bottom surface on the back part of the wing saves weight but is also what makes it fly in such a special way.

Custom Color

Apco Gliders can also be ordered with custom colors to suit your needs, be it a personal preference or for advertising purposes.

The technical limitation of custom color wings is that they must retain the the design/ color segments of the original wing model. If on the intended wing there is a part which is for example Black, the entire part can be replaced to any other available color, but it can not be changed to more then one color. Each color section can change to different color or to same color to create a uniform color scheme. This means that even if your request is an all white glider the panels of the glider will still be composed from different sections that were originally intended to create the color design of the wing. From the Air the wing will be a perfect single color!

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/rectangular loops that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
