"Hey Anatoly and Apco,


Here is some info for your website and facebook:


On December 7th, Ryan Shaw from Paradrenalin USA and one of his students, Deanna set the World Record for the Tandem Time to Climb to 3,000m and also broke the existing Tandem altitude World Record by almost 5,000ft! They flew the Nirvana Instinct NS 230 and an Apco Play 42MKII for both World Records. Thanks to APCO Aviation for making such a great tandem wing! Anyone looking for a well made safe wing with state of the art design should look no further!
